A loving but wickedly humorous tribute to cinema in graphic non-fiction, Sinemania! casts its spotlight on film directors whose lives behind the camera are every bit as compelling, strange, and eccentric as the most headline-making film actors.

Twenty-three North American and European directors ? including Quentin Tarantino, Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, and Roman Polanski ? are given a parodic biography that highlights these men’s twisted genius, rampant egos, and weird behaviour. Sinemania! is unsparing in portraying them, mercilessly and affectionately, in Cossette’s striking illustrations.
