  • In The Mailbag: Just a few quick follow-ups.I was so disappointed that no one mentioned Eat Drink Man Woman as a great food movie. I would argue that it's the best food movie, and one of my favorites. I love cooking, and this movie inspires me to cook. Hopefully this email gets recognized so everyone can know how great this food looks. – Nicholas from Chicago Heights, ILThe slashfilm staff did a great segment on the podcast about filmmaking books and books about filmmaking. The staff gathered a truly great list. I would like to add one more recommendation: CONQUEST OF THE USELESS by Werner Herzog. This book is a collection of journal entries written by Herzog himself during the filming of Fitzcarraldo. This is hands down one of the most amazing books about filmmaking I have ever read. Anyone familiar with Herzog's work or his interviews knows that he has one of the most captivating voices in the media landscape bar none. The book is emotional, grim, and occasionally quite humorous. I would go so far as to say one does not even have to appreciate the movies Herzog makes to enjoy his writing — I for one haven't even seen Fitzcarraldo. Herzog is a force of nature and his writing is a treasure. – Cade from IowaAll the other stuff you need to know:
