Overview

Selected by Kirkus Reviews as one of the best indie books of 2015.-This is a book that was waiting to happen, and fortunately it was Tom Roston who wrote it. After we lost it at the movies, a later era of cinephiles lost it at the video store, and this is their story in their words-nostalgic, vivid, and important, because video germinated a new generation of great filmmakers.- -Peter Biskind, author of Down and Dirty Pictures: Miramax, Sundance, and the Rise of Independent FilmIn I Lost it at the Video Store, Tom Roston interviews the filmmakers-including John Sayles, Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Darren Aronofsky, David O. Russell and Allison Anders-who came of age during the reign of video rentals, and constructs a living, personal narrative of an era of cinema history which, though now gone, continues to shape film culture today. This expanded edition includes an introduction by acclaimed filmmaker Richard Linklater (Boyhood) and a new appendix of conversations between Roston and various actors, directors, producers, and programmers (including Tim Blake Nelson, Paul Dano, Angela Robinson and more) about the past and future of film distribution and culture.Tom Roston is a journalist whose work appears in The New York Times, The Guardian, Spin, The Los Angeles Times and The Hollywood Reporter, among other publications. A former senior editor at Premiere magazine, he also writes a weekly blog about documentaries for PBS' award-winning POV website. He lives in Brooklyn.
