Down and Dirty Pictures

Down and Dirty Pictures - Peter Biskind Nobody comes out of this book well - not Robert Redford, not Quentin Tarantino and least of all, not Harvey Weinstein. But none of them - to my knowledge - has sued Peter Biskind and the book is very robustly sourced (not for no reason). A very enjoyable read and a fitting sequel to Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, which I read about fifteen years ago.
