The iluvcinema Reading List

I would never declare myself an avid reader. But I do make a deliberate effort to read several books in a given calendar year. In fact, I end up at various stages of a collection of books which are in varying stages of completion. As always, they will get read – it is just a matter of WHEN. The answer is always EVENTUALLY.

My current “book du jour” is Stephen Fry’s autobiography, The Fry Chronicles, which I started this morning on my way into the office.

As I make my way through this and a few other titles over the next couple of months, waiting, in a pile on my desk, in my wish list and sundry other forms, is a collection of cinematically-oriented texts whose pages are ready to unfurled. Here is a sampling of that collection:


With any luck, throughout the remaining 8 months of the year, I will be updating iluvcinema readers as to what I think about these and any other titles I come across.

In the meantime, now it’s your turn, what are some of your favorite movie-related books? They can be fiction or non-fiction.



  1. Awesome list! I’m still slacking on my reading resolution, I’m so ashamed of myself 🙂 I’m really curious about the last two books you mentioned, Hitchcock Style and the Film Noir one.

    • Hitchcock style has a lot of photographs so it is a cheat of sorts in terms of a book that one would “read” 🙂 Definitely a coffee table book.

      I love noir and have read several books on the subject. I am really hoping that this is just another in a series of great books about the subject.

  2. What a great set of film books! I’d say Steve Schapiro’s The Godfather Family Album from Taschen would qualify for me. I also picked up the Horror Films of the 1990s by author and friend John Kenneth Muir recently and am enjoying its dark treats. I have a number of film noir books I’m slowly working my way through, myself. Fun post.

    I have an Amazon Associate account and when I want to link something I am able to it.
