Cinema is Dope: Book Pick of the Month January 2009

Behind the Pink Curtain by Jasper Sharp (Fab Press)

For 2009, each month I will highlight one book that is currently out that I personally recommend. The goal is to highlight and promote books on cinema that you might have missed and definitely need to check out.

Behind the Pink Curtain is a dense, rousing and thoroughly exhaustive book on Japanese Pink Cinema that is written with the trademark gusto, infinite knowledge and passion by legendary Japanese writer and expert Jasper Sharp. Until now we have only been given table scraps of information about Pink films in various publications and online sites, which thankfully changes now with this authoritative avalanche of information and insight in Behind the Pink Curtain!
