Neuromancer (1984) – William Gibson

Today’s book shelf takes me to a science fiction classic, written by the father of the cyberpunk genre, William Gibson. This novel came out in 1984. I was to turn 12 that year, and if I had been given this book then, or any age shortly around then, I don’t think I would have enjoyed…

All the President’s Men (1976) – Alan J. Pakula

One of the films that are on DK Canada’s What Else to Watch list after I screened Battle of Algiers is one of my favorite newspaper films, All the President’s Men. Based on the brilliant expose by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein the film is as relevant now, perhaps more so, as when it was…

Se7en (1995) – David Fincher

The final big title in the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book in the Thriller section is The Silence of the Lambs.
