Ayoade On Top: Signed Edition (Hardback)Richard Ayoade (author)
- Not available
Another bone dry parody of cinematic pretension from the comic genius that is Richard Ayoade, Ayoade on Top recasts turgid Hollywood ‘dramedy’ View from the Top as a seminal masterwork of modern film. A marvel of sustained pastiche and clockwork timing.
At last, the definitive book about perhaps the best cabin crew dramedy ever filmed: View From the Top starring Gwyneth Paltrow. In Ayoade on Top, Richard Ayoade, perhaps one of the most 'insubstantial' people of our age, takes us on a journey from Peckham to Paris by way of Nevada and other places we don't care about. It's a journey deep within, in a way that's respectful and non-invasive; a journey for which we will all pay a heavy price, even if you've waited for the smaller paperback edition.
Ayoade argues for the canonisation of this brutal masterpiece, a film that celebrates capitalism in all its victimless glory; one we might imagine Donald Trump himself half-watching on his private jet's gold-plated flat screen while his other puffy eye scans the cabin for fresh, young prey.
