Eric Friedmann

I've been a writer my entire adult life. Stronger than my passion for the keyboard is my passion for the movies.

My first two published books, It's Strictly Personal: A Nostalgic Movie Memoir of 1975-1982 and It's Still Strictly Personal: A Continuing Nostalgic Movie Memoir of 1983-1991 are the most personal stories you'll ever read about the movies that not only impacted my upbringing in the late 1970s through the early 1990s, but also helped to shape the man I've become.

They are dedicated to those who still remember, and those who will never forget a time when movies and blockbusters 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.

It's Still Strictly Personal: A Continuing Nostalgic Movie Memoir of 1983-1991


It's Still Strictly Personal continues Eric Friedmann's journey through the movies during the nine year period of 1983 to 1991.

While he and the rest of the world embraced blockbuster motion pictures like Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, Top Gun, Die Hard, Batman and Terminator 2, it was also alternative films like A Passage to India, Blue Velvet, Platoon, Do the Right Thing and Cinema Paradiso that captured his attention and continued to impact his youth, while shaping a deeper and more meaningful insight to the possibilities of cinema.

Eric's personal story about the movies is still told with great memory and affection, for those who still remember a time when movies continued to change, grow, and evolve into deep-rooted memories for all of us who loved sitting in front of the big screen and waited for the magic to unfold.

"Some movies we just watch. Others, we feel. Those that we can feel may not only tell us who we once were, but perhaps who we have the potential to become" - Eric Friedmann

So, are you ready to go back in time again…and remember?

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?
