Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Pauline Kael's book reviews are never boring, and the collection found in HOOKED are no exception. One of Kael's great gifts was describing the physical characteristics of the actors. She notices how they walk, how they toss their hair, even how they slouch, which she goes to great lengths to show in her review of TOP GUN. The beautiful, tall Kelly McGinis being forced to twist her body into an S repeatedly in order to be shoulder height with the height challenged Tom Cruise. There are the familiar Kael favorites that she promotes continually--Brian DePalma, Robert Altman, Jeff Bridges--those she barely tolerates--Cruise, Clint Eastwood,and Spielberg. Agree or disagree, her prose is outstanding.
