It's Strictly Personal: A Nostalgic Movie Memoir of 1975-1982
It's Strictly Personal vividly chronicles Eric Friedmann as a child of the movies during the eight year period of 1975 to 1982, when groundbreaking blockbuster motion pictures like Jaws, Rocky, Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Saturday Night Fever, Superman The Movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and E.T. not only impacted his childhood, but also shaped the man he would one day become.
It's a tale of how he felt about the movies then, and also how he interprets them now.
This is a personal story about the movies told with great memory and affection, for those who still remember, and those who will never forget, a time when movies were changing, growing, and evolving into deep-rooted memories for every child, teen and adult who sat in front of the big screen and waited for the magic to unfold.
"Movies constitute an emotional form of time travel that allows us to drift backward and take stock of the different periods of our personal lives." - Eric Friedmann
So, are you ready to go back in time… and remember?
