I love movie books. I own a lot of them. I have owned more than I now have. Some favourites include Alan Arnold’s Once Upon a Galaxy – The Making of The Empire Strikes Back, Paul Sammon’s Future Noir – The making of Blade Runner, Steven Bach’s – Final Cut. So many to name.
But what I didn’t know, I am embarrassed to say, that I had no idea about fellow Brit author Jay Glennie’s books on The Deer Hunter, Raging Bull and Trainspotting until pretty recently. A kind twitter follower mentioned Jay and his books. Immediately I could see that Jay had a great eye for the huge stills that are included within his books, but also that there was a clear and engaging narrative throughout.
In late November 2021 Jay and I spoke over Zoom.
