Exploitation Nation #14
Digest – Happy Cloud Media – Oct 2023 – 112 pages
In this special issue, they pay tribute to a dear friend, author/director/poet/bon vivant, William Richert. Best known for directing WINTER KILLS and A NIGHT IN THE LIFE OF JIMMY REARDON (under its original title “Aren’t You Even Gonna Kiss Me Goodbye?”). Bill was blackballed by the industry in the ’90s over his feuds with the Writer’s and Director’s Guilds of America, as well as his insistence in reopening the case of River Phoenix’s death. Presented for the first time is a long-form interview with Bill, never before published, as well as documents written by Bill himself, previewing his final book: EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE. Also boasting many rare photos sent by Bill himself! This is a tribute to a wonderful man.
