Nonfiction:

Fiction:

Film/TV

Live-action:

  • L.A. Confidential (one of the best noir films; Exley is particularly interesting as neither quite hero nor anti-hero)
  • All About Eve (excellent character-study/drama about the price of fame, the sincerest forms of flattery, and a little meta-fictionally, the psychology of the theatre and Broadway being usurped by Hollywood; like Hitchcock’s Suspicion, the driving force is detecting deception or the lack thereof. Features an unexpected appearance by Marilyn Monroe.)
  • 8 1/2 (a lame waste of time; not remotely funny nor insightful nor rendered sufficiently interesting by the now-exotic setting of 1960s Catholic Italy, as the making of 8 1/2 is Fellini’s excuse for making 8 1/2 in a third-rate breaking-the-fourth-wall exercise)
