STAND ALONE: The Films Of Mickey Rourke (New Book.....Available NOW)

A great actor who's dipped his toes in many a murky 'DTV' water is Mickey Rourke. I loved his performances in Barfly (top ten material) The Pope Of Greenwich Village, Homeboy (and even Double Team, Bullet and Point Blank) Well, Mickey's out of that DTV wildnerness now, thank God (sorry atheists) and once again a major player in Hollywood.

For many years on IMDB, I've been in correspondence with the author (a likewise avid Seagal-Fan) And his new book charts all of Rourke's cinematic ups and downs, in a fact-finding read, with a passionate, well researched/informed stance on the topic at hand (and is a must for all fans of this enigmatic actor)

Stand Alone: The Films Of Mickey Rourke

Stand Alone: The Films of Mickey Rourke is the book that Rourke fans have been waiting for. Combining reviews and analytical discussion of all his films (including rare short movies and unreleased TV pilots), the book takes a critical and detailed look at his career, acting performances and lifeworks. Included are interviews with cast and crew from some of his lesser known features, rare interview snippets from Rourke himself as well as fully transcribed answers by him from a Q&A appearance in London 2009 and from the full taping of the Inside the Actors Studio Programme.
The author has followed Rourke’s career for almost 20 years and has written articles and reviews on him in Time Out, Total Film, Empire Online and the Independent Film Magazine. If you want a book that concentrates on his work, his legacy and the films he has made then you will find Stand Alone a challenging and engaging read.

Now Available on paperback and E-book formats.
