9780571339136At last the definitive book about perhaps the best cabin crew dramedy ever filmed: View From the Top starring Gwyneth Paltrow. In Ayoade on Top Richard Ayoade perhaps one of the most ‘insubstantial’ people of our age takes us on a journey from Peckham to Paris by way of Nevada and other places we don’t care about. It’s a journey deep within in a way that’s respectful and non-invasive; a journey for which we will all pay a heavy price even if you’ve waited for the smaller paperback edition. Ayoade argues for the canonisation of this brutal masterpiece a film that celebrates capitalism in all its victimless glory; one we might imagine Donald Trump himself half-watching on his private jet’s gold-plated flat screen while his other puffy eye scans the cabin for fresh young prey.
