François Truffaut: Fahrenheit 451 (1966) - full movie @ YouTube | Wikipedia
- Fahrenheit four-five-one is the temperature at which book paper catches fire and starts to burn […] Well, it’s a job just like any other. Good work with lots of variety. Monday, we burn Miller; Tuesday, Tolstoy; Wednesday, Walt Whitman; Friday, Faulkner; and Saturday and Sunday, Schopenhauer and Sartre. We burn them to ashes and then burn the ashes. That’s our official motto.

This is just a brief section of the documentary. An introduction so to speak.”

Andrew Kolb´s Space Oddity children´s book
“Have you ever listened to a song and your mind’s eye is immediately filled with visuals? David Bowie’s classic space epic is one such song for me. Every lyric paints such a vivid picture that I figured ‘Oh hey, I guess I’ll make that into a children’s book!’ Yes, I talk like this. Although I haven’t heard from Mr. Bowie (yet), why wait to share the full book?”
Paul Schrader: Mishima - finale (1985)
“… There I saw a great circle coiled around the earth, a ring that resolved all contradictions, a ring vaster than death, more fragrant than any scent I have ever known. Here was the moment I had always been seeking.”

James Ellroy, the Demon Dog of American Crime Fiction (DDoACF, pronounced dee-doacough), is responsible for a slew of bestselling novels, most notably The Black Dahlia and L.A. Confidential, as well as the 1996 memoir My Dark Places in which he teams up with a retired LAPD Detective in an attempt to solve his mother’s 1958 murder in El Monte, California. His new memoir, The Hilliker Curse, traces the shadow cast by his mom, Jean Hilliker’s death over her son’s life. It’s the autobiography of a man whose life is guided and ruled by women, dead and alive, real and imagined. It’s the story of a man who, like the book says, “was desperate to write stories and touch women for real.”
