    I'll either be going to Lexington this Tuesday or Thursday to buy Metroid Prime for GameCube and a Rowdy Roddy Piper book for a signing to happen in Joseph Beth. However, I'll have some money left over to buy one more book. I have three choices:

    The Emperor and the Wolf
    - Book about the working relationship between Kurosawa and Mifune.

    Kubrick
    - It's like a final edition look at Kubrick and his pictures. It's by Michael Ciment I think. I'm not sure, but I saw it once. It was loaded with pictures, interviews, and texts concerning the making of practically every one of his movies including Eyes Wide Shut.

    David Lean: An Intimate Portrait
    - It's David Lean, nuff said.

    Buy the book on the person whose work you are most familiar with.

    The KUBRICK volume by Michael Ciment is magnificent. [​IMG]
