Tom Roston’s book I Lost it at the Video Store is a collection of interviews with Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, David O. Russell, and other great filmmakers whose love for film were cultivated by video rental stores. Excerpt here. Tom’s list of video stores here.
This year’s edition is packed with over 350 pages of work from established and up-and-coming writers and artists. There’s something for everyone from cheerful romance, to dark tales of woe. We rather enjoyed the chapter intros, drawn by editor Jonathan Lethem.
