I would recommend this biography to everyone interested in film.
There story's well told and mostly accurate.
David Coate never knew Losey, so he makes lots of educated guesses, and some of them are off base.
I knew Losey very well over 18 years (he mentions this frequently in the book) and feel he listened a bit too much to people
with axes to grind, but that in itself is not uninteresting.
It's a fascinating if quite fanciful portrait of one of the all-time great film directors and his tempestuous life.

Success seems to have eluded Joe. There is something about Losey that prevented this talented director from achieving "success" especially in the US. I would consider him "underrated" based on the few films that aren't the self-indulgent ones. Most directors are "difficult" people to live with and often to work with- but they still seem to get it right for 2 or 3 unforgettable films. Poor Joe- was his own worst enemy it seems.
