5.0 out of 5 stars Out of control 15 May 2009
Format:Hardcover
For anyone interested in an insight into egomania in the movie-making business. This is the fascinating true story of how a product takes on a life of its own and ruins the reputations of virtually everyone associated with its making. Told in riveting detail and objectively so, the characters come to life on every page.

5.0 out of 5 stars riveting and at times very funny 14 Oct 2009
Format:Hardcover
I can happily say that you will not be disappointed in this book if you are looking for:
1. a well written account from a man at the heart of United Artists at the time events unfolded.
2. a gripping story of inflated ego in Hollywood told with just the right amount of detail i.e. a lot but none of it superfluous
3. laugh of loud moments
4. a book to share with friends and enjoy owning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for any film fan 19 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a big read. I confess to skipping over a few chapters, not sure why the author needed to include a history of the West and the Johnston County War as well as vaguely relevant scenery on the state of Hollywood in the 70s. But the insider view of the Hollywood system, the days of the Director as King and United Artists' desire to be different is a fascinating, if now so alien, peek at a time where film-making and filmmakers seemed so bold and daring. I think the author does skip over his naivety a bit, but his account of the premiere of Heaven's Gate in particular is heartfelt and well written.
