Some bargains today:Voy A Explotar
(I'm Gonna Explode
) - championed by Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal - from Fopp for £5 along with Return to Normandy
by Nicolas 'Etre et Avoir
' Philibert for £2!
Also got Alex Cox's X Films
hardback for £6 from Fopp.
Walking along Euston Road I came across a bookshop where all of the books on sale were £2 or less! So I duly bought Joe Eszterhas's biography Hollywood Animal
(hardback) and producer Michael Deeley's biography Blade Runners, Deer Hunters & Blowing the Bloody Doors Off
I also found the first two volumes of 2000AD writer John Smith's Devlin Waugh
. He's probably one of my favourite comic story writers and the fact that he's from my home town has nothing to do with it
Also I was chuffed to see a VHS copy of Philip Ridley's The Passion of Darkly Noon
on the door mat when I got home - a film I've been wanting to see for ages.
And finally I just spunked a significant amount on a region 4 release of Peter Greenaway's The Tulse Luper Suitcases
, which has all 3 films and an interview with the man himself (Greenaway not Luper, although some might say...).
I'm incredibly excited about this and think this might be the best purchase of the year for me, even though it's only February.
