But, I felt morally obligated to continue, and I am glad that I did. Reviewed in the United States on November 3, 2019. I'm a confessed Ayoade fan. Father, Husband, Man. anyways this was very funny and i would love to read more monographs on early 2000s movies but only if written by richard ayoade. i can not BELIEVE the fight scene between christine and donna was glossed over like this (a small paragraph at the end of a chapter) i was SURE it would receive it's own chapter, as it deserves. Literal stitches; I fell into a mall water fountain while reading the MANY appendixes. To get the free app, enter your mobile phone number. Gotta love that Ayoade. Refresh and try again. Richard Ayoade: Actor, Writer, Director. If you're a fan of Ayoade, film or comedy you probably love this just as I did. Grab it today, just be prepared to laugh until you cry. Making fun of anything with Richard Ayoade is a dream of mine, and the fact that he happened to write about one of my favorite movies made it even better. A book completely unlike any other. What a piece of literary genius! This was quite enjoyable but more like a comedy book you would dip into every now and again. The horrible orange outfit that Gwyneth and the cringe-inducing singalong during the credits. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness. This book left me in stitches. Like many books by comedians, Ayoade on Ayoade is a vehicle for jokes, and most of them are funny. Just enough "laugh-out-loud moments" to qualify for my enduring respect. The answer, hopefully will be answered in his next book 'Ayoade IN Ayoade' (hot). It isn't that many things that make me laugh so hard I can't breathe. Oh, I was tempted only to give three stars, but there is enough funny, quirky stuff in this strange book to call it "quite good". Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It was a joy to read and I was sad to finish it, and I always look forward to Ayoade's next work. It was painful. I thought about giving it two stars but I couldn’t. At last, the definitive book about perhaps the best cabin crew dramedy ever filmed: View From the Top starring Gwyneth Paltrow. Not your normal kind of autobiography, if you're not already a fan of Ayoade when you pick this up you'll soon be wondering what in the gibbering flip is going on. Jokes had been stretched too far and it just wasn't my cup of tea sadly. “It’s like something Beckett would have written if he had the balls to write something with a plot.”. Some passages are simply glorious. In the end, it is a light-weight romp well suited to those who find the US movie industry to be mostly vacant. Toast on Toast: Cautionary tales and candid advice. I love Richard Ayoade and his sense of humor. Ayoade is particularly good at making up fake move plots (see Hot Sauce 2: The Afterburn). Learn more about the program. This book is 'shoot milk out your nose' funny while still being deeply insightful. So hearing Richard talking about this book on the radio i leapt to buy. Sure it was funny to refer the reader to 10 footnotes and 3 areas of the appendix in the first chapter. And these hundreds of footnotes (that's not an exaggeration) made me go forth and back all the time. A well-known comedian takes the piss out of Gwyneth Paltrow, Goop, and - most importantly - one of her biggest cinematic flops? Reviewed in the United States on March 29, 2020.

The horrible orange outfit that Gwyneth and the cringe-inducing singalong during the credits. The film was badly made, badly written, and badly acted. OK, look, humour is subjective. It's the scoop of a lifetime -- but will they kill him before he writes it? He's weird and I absolutely love it. His last two books have shown us how much of cinephile he is but this book looks set to take it even further. Over ten brilliantly insightful and often erotic interviews, Ayoade examines Ayoade fully and without mercy, leading a breathless investigation into this once-in-a-generation visionary. In this book Richard Ayoade -- actor, writer, director, and amateur dentist -- reflects on his cinematic legacy as only he can: in conversation with himself.

At last, the definitive book about perhaps the best cabin crew dramedy ever filmed: View From the Top starring Gwyneth Paltrow. Maybe a better word is "eccentric"? It's not a very long book but it has a very extensive index at the end and just that is its own fun. But to continue that over the course of the entire book... ugh. Richard Ellef Ayoade (Londres, 12 de junho de 1977) é um comediante, ator, diretor, roteirista e apresentador britânico mais conhecido pelos seus papéis de Dean Learner em Garth Marenhi's Darkplace e Maurice Moss em The IT Crowd. The form, content and style were all completely insane and I loved every minute. 4.5 stars. Too. by Faber & Faber. A bloody nightmare which substantially spoiled my reading experience. Some Other Things, Too. As most of my reading is done on the toilet, (small screen) and most of my writing is done with emojis, (while on said toilet) I am not the foremost expert on literary genius. The result is a diatribe that uses cynicism and sarcasm to mock 'acting', "the US movie industry', self-platitudinal business games, and so on. I went to places I never knew existed, let alone were on a map. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 13, 2019. -- Jessie Eisenberg "By far the best deep dive critical examination of View From The Top." Early 2000s, Hong Kong. It has a great index.

I was disappointed with this book if I'm honest - I'm a huge fan of Richard Ayoade and had high expectations for this book. I chuckled a few times but comedy is hard in written form. To read it on one fell swoop ends in mild disappointment as it's quite samey throughout however I have to confess to giggling a fair bit while reading. I wanted so much to like it! Starting it I was quite amused by the tone and asides and pedantic stylings that are so familiar to Ayoade's comedy. Basically a super long essay on a film that I've never seen, and I doubt many others have either. I recommend it to anyone who knows of Richard Ayoade and enjoys his brand of sarcastic dry humour. Therefore I love Ayoade. In that case, we can't... To see what your friends thought of this book. Richard Ayoade is a nerd comic genius, and possibly over the head of many who aren't at that level of the matrix yet. There was nothing I disliked, I think the size of the book was perfect and I really did laugh out loud. Then a bit irritating. I bought the book after seeing him talk about it on the Graham Norton show. It just wasn’t good. I love The IT Crowd and I love Maurice Moss. That being said, I had a hard time putting this book down. Interpretations I thought I would never understand. It's a very competent spoof, too – one showing that he can put pen to paper and come up with something clever enough, enjoyable and witty and at times sprightly, and very well sustained.

I ended up loving it, I can't recall the last time a book has made me laugh so much! September 5th 2019 -- Joel McHale The news confirmed their feeling that things were terrible everywhere, and there was nothing anyone could do about it apart from keep abreast of developments. For whatever reason this is the most in-depth analysis of a the movie View from on top, a movie I’ve never seen. In this book, Richard Ayoade interviews himself, Richard Ayoade, about his life in the limelight, mostly concentrating on his love for film and the films he has made, namely the only two he has made, Submarine and The Double. The only question remains "how much Ayoade is too much Ayoade?" Reviewed in the United States on November 29, 2019. I read this on a Kindle, like so many, many other people do nowadays, Sir. In my many years as an aspiring academic, I had to read my fair share of media analysis. Reviewed in the United States on January 8, 2020. Much. From the very first episode of "The IT Crowd", I deemed Moss my favorite character in the show, and Richard Ayoade one of my top 5 comedians EVER. The film was badly made, badly written, and badly acted. Ayoade is much funnier in person than on the page. I haven't read any other books by Ayoade (I'm just assuming this one's probably the silliest yet), and I haven't read any books about films before either, but this was so much fun.
