“If you're interested in the in's and out's of a “Cat o' Nine Tails” arse then this is the book for you! If you want to know what the story involves, how much of the red stuff is spilled, what the F.X. work is like and whether it's a good film or not then look else-where!
I really can't get interested in anything that takes everything apart studies it and then takes it apart some more, and more ... and I'm afraid that's what we've got a bad case of here, maybe it's your “cup of tea”? But it sure as hell ain't mine! I only find this kind of book of use when I'm suffering from insomnia, having said that the, the interview etc., is great and the stills are very nice.”
