    PDF ß BOOK The Devil's Candy FREE ☆ CITYBELLS The Devil's Candy, The Anatomy of a Hollywood FiascoThis book details the making of 'The Bonfire of the Vanities' a movie which along with 'Heaven's Gate' 'Ishtar' and 'Waterworld' is in the exclusive club of big budget Hollywood flicks that aspired to greatness but proved to be critical and box office flops The director Brian De Palma gave Ms Salamon the run of the set with permission to interview anyone involved in the production The story reads very much like a novel; in fact by design it reads very much like Tom Wolfe's novel 'The Bonfire of the Vanities' which documents the ubiuitous greed and wanton materialism among the financial aristocrats of New York City circa mid 1980s One of the delights of this narrative is that many though not all of the people involved in producing the movie are just as venal and greedy as the characters in the story they are trying to turn into a motion picture Brian De Palma actually t

    PDF ß BOOK The Devil's Candy FREE ☆ CITYBELLS The Devil's Candy, The Anatomy of a Hollywood FiascoI’ve had this waiting to be read for about ten years and I finally read it over six months What’s with that? Oh yeah parenting It’s cold and matter of fact and does exactly what it should I wish I’d read it all those years ago because it would have felt searing I’m older now It doesn’t surprise me how any of this stuff works and I can see too many of the protagonists’ points of viewBecause I’m human here’s my theory on why the movie bombed In part The book is not that great It might have hit a key spot at the end of the eighties but I reckon that moment had already passed by 1991 when the movie came out That’s the year Nevermind came out you know? No one did care about these moneyed yuppie New York problems maybe There’s no one to roo
