"In my opinion, [Agee's] column is the most remarkable regular event in American journalism today."--W. H. Auden

James Agee was passionately involved with the movies throughout his life. A master of both fiction and nonfiction, he wrote about film in clean, smart prose as the reviewer for Time magazine and as a columnist for The Nation. Agee was particularly perceptive about the work of his friend John Huston and recognized the artistic merit of certain B films such as The Curse of the Cat People and other movies produced by Val Lewton.

"I got a hold of voodoo spellcasters,when I had some bad luck thrown my way. I had a consultation with the priest in charge. He casted the Ultimate Jinx & Evil Remover/Curse Killer Spell. My husband left me and I thought I needed the same spell again, but during the consultation the Priest told me to save the money, because he thought that spell wasn't needed again and for me to save my money from getting the same spell... He told me to get the Come To Me, Obstacle Breaker and Love Only Me Spells, with the portions and within 5days my husband returned and with that Love Only Me portion his love for me felt like the day we were married. I had the Miracle Money Spell X 3 (three times) and I came into a nice sum of money. I am so grateful for voodoos spellcasters, to enter my life.
