    Default Friends of Michael Mann

    Stephan Hunter was a Pulitzer Prize winning movie critic, first for the Baltimore Sun, then the Washington Post. He has seen LOTS of movies and knows a shitty film when he sees one. The past tense refers to the fact that he has retired from the movie critic business. He is now a thriller writer (a very good one) and his most recent book (G-Man) has an afterward explaining his impetus for writing it was just how incredibly horrible and fucked up his 2009 movie Public Enemies was. For FPW fans the book is worth buying just for the afterword.

    Enjoy

    I've met him a number of times. He's a character.

    G-Man was probably one of Hunter's best books.

    Yes, that is the latest one. I thought it was so-so for Hunter although very good in general. Like I said, worth the money just for the afterword.
