Paul Driessen -- Images and Reflections
The book is a biography, too. You detect a manifest liking for Paul Driessen as a person, both in the authors' text and (obviously) in the declarations of associates and colleagues elegantly scattered around the pages. Luckily, this doesn't imply a fan-club taste and you feel there is a refreshing respect both for the film-maker and for the readers.
What else? A wealth of illustrations in black & white and color, which will especially please the visual artists, a filmography (by Nico Crama), a glossary and a bibliography. If you want me to split hairs, I'll say that I would have loved an index and maybe a photograph of Paul Driessen himself... But never mind.
