Top Customer Reviews
Nicholson's book is equal parts film history and psychoanalysis of Thomas Cruise Mapother IV. Among the Cruise films examined are RISKY BUSINESS, TOP GUN, BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY, INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE, JERRY MAGUIRE, EYES WIDE SHUT, MAGNOLIA, WAR OF THE WORLDS, TROPIC THUNDER and MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL. Interwoven with that material is Nicholson's penetrating, insightful exploration of Cruise's development as a person.
I was somewhat surprised at some of the flicks included and excluded but it's Nicholson book and she obviously chose carefully to make her point.
Movie buffs will enjoy this in-depth summary of the life, times and craft of Tom Cruise. Recommended.
Highly recommended book from a writer whose work continues to challenge my assumptions.
