Anne Billson is one of the best film writers around and this is an excellent collection of her work. She's at her best discussion genre movies, particularly horror, but her wide range of reference and obvious love of movies means that she can easily go from "Interview With a Vampire" to "Saving Private Ryan" and add some sharp observations about "Stealing Beauty" along the way. An absolute steal at the price and don't forget to get Volume 1 as well!
