I think it’s pointless to buy a book of any artist if his career hasn’t ended yet. But that’s just me.
I have 3 of his books (purchased all at the same time) and they are crammed packed full of useful and interesting information. I haven’t got around to reading them yet (I have only skim read them), but I can’t wait. In fact, I’m going to read one of them on the train home. Books provide me what I crave for and what this forum lacks, an intelligent, deep insight into the man and his films. There is so much there, it isn’t even funny, hence my love for the guy and his movies. :-*
