Bright Light Film Journal review of LEE MARVIN POINT BLANK by Dwayne Epstein reviewed by Eric Kuersten. I like most of what Kuersten had to say in Bright Light FIlm Journal, such as:
“And the book does what good movie star biographies should — inspires a new appreciation and desire to hunt down the star’s old films. ”
As well as, “Dwayne Epstein’s book has woven the facts and legends together with such consummate skill that we come away feeling like we know all Marvin’s human faults, his goodness, his drunkenness, his PTSD, and rather than lessening our appreciation of the myth, the icon, it just makes him feel all the more mythic.”
Such comments makes me forgive him for what I don’t agree with..or for misspelling Michele Triola and Tony Epper. The guy clearly ‘got it’ but don’t just take my word for it. Click the link below and find out for yourself. Better yet, pick up a copy of Lee Marvin Point Blank and judge for yourself.
