I just finished "The Kill Off" and "A Hell OF A Woman." So I've read 6 of his 29 or so books. Bless Black Lizard publishing for the best looking and feeling paperbacks ever.
Anyway, great stuff.
I just watched Casey Affleck in "The Killer Inside Me." So sad that it was ALL there. The script, the period, good cast. And the director ruined it by deviating into gore-porn for a crucial bit. I had to hit fast forward at 8x and it still lasted too long. Affleck is good but he is also miscast. It was also interesting to read how universally people hate that portion of this film. If I were the director, I'd pull a Francis Ford Coppola and re-cut it.
I added a drawing of Barry Fitzgerald from tonight's viewing of The Naked City. 1949 love letter to NY city.
