About Me:
I am an opinionated author, entertainment attorney and nightlife enthusiast.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer, Publisher, Critic
Books And Authors I Like:
Barry Eisler, John Le Carre, Robert Greene, Anais Nin
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
1) The American (2010): a minimalistic spy thriller; one of the few times the movie was better than the book.

2) Basic Instinct (1992): the most well known example of the erotic thriller

3) Blade Runner (1982): an amazing blend of noir and sci-fi that defined cyberpunk

4) Brick (2005): a well done noir detective story set in high school

5) Chinatown (1974): defined noir drama for an entire generation

6) Enter the Dragon (1973): its never considered a espionage film due to the excessive ass kicking, but that’s what it is at it’s core

7) Fight Club (1999): we don’t talk about fight club…

8) Heat (1995): a very stylish example of the heist film

9) Inception (2010): a beautifully structured combination of sci-fi and espionage

10) La Femme Nikita (1990): a classic European espionage film that spawned a good TV show, a bad TV show and an awful American remake

11) Layer Cake (2004): a British crime drama with a good plot and a good cast

12) Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998): strong characters and stronger dialogue

13) Memento (2000): the crime drama that redefined the use of the flashback

14) Miami Vice (2006): a spy thriller pretending to be a remake of an 80’s cop movie

15) Reservoir Dogs (1992): I wish all the dialogue in my writing was this good

16) Ronin (1998): a crime drama that manages to be both subtle and over the top

17) Seven (1995): easily one of the best film endings of the past 20 years

18) Spy Game (2001): an excellent example of the career of a master spy

19) The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999): nice film adaptation of a classic book

20) The Usual Suspects (1995): a great cast a great script and the best villain in years

21) Way of the Gun (2000): a systematically brutal with a twisted pessimism and questionable motives all around
