This was the most enjoyable read I purchased (authorised Amazon purchase) last year, after it received a stellar full page review in the October 2020 Sight and Sound. As the reviewer wrote: "....it's one of those books you can't believe hasn't been written already. Let's just be grateful it finally has". I didn't even pick up the errata that kept you awake at night. I'm glad you've finally put the book into your blog, because it certainly deserves a place in all the noteworthy things that go on in your life. Wishing you a healthy and prosperous 2020, Glenn!

Many thanks!The reader reaction has, and continues to be, very gratifying.

KING OF COMEDY was actually released in February 1983. Scorsese has remarked that it was Fox's lowest-grossing film of '83. There may have been some screenings in '82.

GRAFFITI "of course was a box-office blockbuster, the third highest-grossing film of the year."

Yep, after THE EXORCIST and THE STING. (1973)

December 1982 in Iceland. It counts!

Yes, I spotted one or two of the above errors, but enjoyed the book so much I didn't want to appear to be one of those pedantic types that can never be happy with anything. And others brought them to your attention anyway. Eh, the Irishman npr interview happened in January 2020 as well, catch that as well? Hope you do more of these books.

Glenn Kenny

Yeah, that was fixed. As in Pokeman lingo, we caught 'em all. [knocks wood]

It does! 1982 it is.

1983 was just the year when Americans chose not to see it.
