Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

One of the most creative and original screenwriters of the '90s, Michael Tolkin treats radically different themes with each new film. But whether his subject is Hollywood, Christian fundamentalism or the malaise of the married swinger, Tolkin's world is always brutally comic, laced with stinging irony and wild satire. The Player, which was directed by Robert Altman, is the most famous of these three, but the other two films, which Tolkin directed himself, are worth checking out. All of them work at such a high level of wit and erudition that the screenplays make just as good reading as the films do viewing.

Ordered this for Kindle -- was delivered the Tolkin novel "The Player." If you check the "look Inside" feature, it's the same thing. Hopefully Amazon will fix this -- but for now DO NOT ORDER FOR KINDLE if you want the screenplays.

I'm a nineteen year-old youth with a minimal interest in books and movies. I'm not sure why, but Michael Tolkin's movies (esp. "The Rapture") really have an effect on me. I think "The Rapture" was a really misunderstood movie, I know it took me a total of three times seeing it before I really understood the character's motivations for her actions at the end of it. I don't know why I'm writing this. I guess I just want somebody to tell me when he's making another movie or writing another book. Please email me with any info, I'd appreciate it. Thanks a lot.
