James Fotopoulos’ cover art for author/screenwriter Joe Carducci’s new book Stone Male-Requiem for The Living Picture.
Film Comment (July-Aug.), from a review by Nick Pinkerton (not on-line):
“[A]bout the most fun I’ve had with a film book in about a million years…. A large part of his 1991 opus ‘Rock and the Pop Narcotic’ was dedicated to dismantling certain recurring political pieties that obscured the discussion of rock as an actual musical form. Appearing a quarter-century later, ‘Stone Male’ may be taken as the second part of Carducci’s epic treatise toward an aesthetics of American exceptionalism.”
