More than an amazing reference for fans
After meeting rockoff i picked up his book. i expected it would be filled with references that fans would appreciate. what i found was so much more, as going to pieces is one of the more thoroughly researched books about any film genre that i have read. rockoff's interviews are fresh and he tracked down a lot of people whose contributions have largely gone unnoticed. what's more, rockoff's style is unpretentious and often very, very funny. i loved this book and if you want to go beyond the films and filmmakers every other book or magazine cites, then this book if for you, too.
