One Hundred Film Haiku: The Reel Thing features a hundred well-known films from the last 50 years, distilling each one into pocket-sized three-line haiku. The title of each film is printed upside down in small type at the bottom of the page for the ultimate movie trivia challenge. The book is the latest in the Iron Press haiku series – presented in the gift-sized A6 format and printed on high quality textured paper.
They tackled a shark,
Bit off more than they could chew
In a too-small boat.
Fleeing with the cash
She opts to take a shower –
It’s curtains for her.
A little princess
Shows she needs help.
It can’t be A solo effort.
