Overview

Director of 14 films, including Angel Heart, The Commitments, Evita, Fame, Pink Floyd The Wall, and The Road to Wellville, Alan Parker is known for his acidic wit and uncompromising approach to filmmaking. Parker has often resorted to humor in cartoons to vent his frustrations about the business, and, to his surprise, recipients within the industry actually enjoyed and often even framed his biting messages. Studio heads, actors, and crew all come under Parker's merciless pen in this unique collection of more than 200 mini masterpieces. Cinephiles will enjoy access to the director’s doodles, drawings, and sketches, which have become collector's items among their often thinly-veiled targets, adorning the walls of actors, producers, directors, and movie executives around the world.
