Reviews

"[An] astute, acerbic, and footnote-crazy chronicle of life as a "movie freak mole man." ... Oswalt is a true cinephiliac, equally appreciative of the artistry of Jean Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast and Doris Wishman's Bad Girls Go to Hell."--Philadelphia Inquirer
"Hilarious.... [Silver Screen Fiend] shows Oswalt's maturity as a writer and a thinker."--Philadelphia Inquirer
"Immediate and vital... [Silver Screen Fiend is] enough to make any reader seek out the many films that made him hibernate in the first place.--A.V. Club
"Silver Screen Fiend is both a love letter to artistic obsession and string of caution tape around it. Patton describes the ecstatic demands of the arts (in this case, Stand-up and Film) with insight, fond pity, and unfailing humor. This is a book for anyone who strives to be great, or is bored in an airport."--Joss Whedon
