Gordy LaSure's passionate about film.

He eats film, he drinks film, and sometimes he'll even watch a film.

But most of all he loves talking to people about film: whether a comely student with low confidence and a father complex, a Studio 'development' exec who doesn't trust his own judgement, or the countless people Gordy LaSure's encountered in his capacity as the web moderator on an Excessive Sweating Discussion Forum.

Gordy LaSure's always talking about films and how they'd be a shit ton better if only people would pull their asses out of their ears and listen to Gordy LaSure.

The voyage of this book can be categorised as an attempt to understand How In Hell Film Works. Why are some films bad, and some films terrible?

How come just a handful of films (Titanic, Porky's, Dirty Harry) are any good at all? Gordy'll tell you How and Why, and he'll give you a slug of Wherefore on the side. And he doesn't shoot from the hip; he shoots from the gut.

A British comedian, writer and presenter Richard Ayoade is best-known for his roles on screen as Maurice Moss in the Emmy Award-winning The IT Crowd, Dean Learner in Garth Marenghi’s Darplace and as the presenter of The Crystal Maze. He is the author of Ayoade on Ayoade and The Grip of Film.
