New in Paperback: 10 BAD DATES WITH DE NIRO

Richard T. Kelly's wacky book of alternative movie lists, 10 Bad Dates with De Niro, has just been released in paperback. This entertaining collection of lists is a symposium and celebration of viewing pleasures, private passions, and cinematic lost causes. Contributors include a stellar cast of critics, filmmakers, and writers ranging from Steven Soderbergh and the Coen brothers to Mike Figgis and George Pelecanos.

"A stimulating, necessary volume - and virtually alone amongst cinematic studies in the wit of its arguments and the seductiveness of its style." - Richard Schickel, Los Angeles Times

Here's a sneak preview of some of the list included in 10 Bad Dates with De Niro:

  • Ten Great Uses of Poetry at the Movies
  • Top Ten Movie Nightclubs I Wish Were Real
  • Ten Great Funerals
  • Ten Movies that Made Cigarettes Look Cool
  • Ten Remakes That Improve on the Originals
  • Ten So-Called "Turkeys" that Are Actually Terrific
  • Ten Great Passenger-Plane Moments
  • Ten Great Acting Turns by Rock Stars and Other Musicians
  • Ten Great Opening-Credit Sequences
  • Top Ten Thespian Turns in Drag
