Автор: Деннис Хенсли
For years Dennis Hensley, author of the best-seller Misadventures in the (213), has been getting his friends together to watch and crack wise about movies we all know and love, movies like Taxi Driver, Jaws, and The Sound of Music, movies that had an impact on the world we live in. They also watched Glitter. Though each film endures its share of cheap shots («Whitney Houston’s wig in The Bodyguard is like a tricornered hat. I keep waiting for her to cross the Delaware.»), Hensley and Company are just as likely to talk seriously about what the films mean to them. «The thing that killed me about Saturday Night Fever when I first saw it,» recalls one party regular, «is that I knew I was desperate like Donna Pescow, but I wanted to be glamorous like Karen Lynn Gorney. That struggle has stayed with me my whole life.» Screening Party also explores the lives of its «characters» outside of the parties-their hopes and dreams, fortunes and foibles, and how the ritual of getting together once a month to lust after Gregory Harrison in For Ladies Only or make fun of Barbra Streisand in A Star Is Born comes to mean more to them than they’d ever have imagined.
So if you’re the kind of person who drops everything when you happen upon St. Elmo’s Fire on cable, if you can’t bite into a strawberry without thinking of Kim Basinger and Mickey Rourke making a mess of the kitchen in 9 1/2 Weeks, if you’ve always wanted to watch Al Pacino get leathered up and go Cruising but aren’t man enough to do it alone, this book’s for you. So grab a seat on the couch. The party’s just beginning.
