Required Reading: Most Influential Film Books

Sight & Sound sounds off on their top five film books.  I've written a bit about my most influential film books previously.   I would add Story Of The Eye, Camera Lucida, Ways Of Seeing, and The Three Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch to this list.  They may not really about film, granted, but they taught me about film for sure.

Carson Mell: 1 pt C. Burns, 1 pt. P.K.Dick, 1 pt. just him

David Lowery's HammerToNail review of Carson's Field Notes From Dimension X created that hunger that couldn't be filled.  Dimension X was no longer on the Sundance iTunes sight.  

Luckily, the man's got some of his other work up to be dug.  Monsters, rock, and loneliness has always been cocktail to tickle my tuesday.  I can't wait to see Mell's feature debut.  Dang, I may have to go buy his book just to tide me over.
