It’s time we recognize Peter Bogdanovich as national treasure. With the possible exception of Andrew Sarris nobody has championed the cause of the American Cinema with more eloquence and intelligence. It’s a true shame most of his interview books with great directors have fallen out of print, but with a little perseverance his chats with the giants of cinema are web retrievable. Youthful hubris sidetracked his promising career as a director all too soon, but both Targets and The Last Picture Show remain among the most interesting works of a volatile and transitional era.
