I get through 'em!
on 16 September 2010
written by someone who obviously has mastered his craft and considered his own techniques. the writing is clear (as you would hope from a film maker, after all film making is about communication!) and the concepts are explanied with examples and anecdotes. loads of gems, ie: definition of drama is anticpation mingled with uncertainty.
I would put it up with Story by Robert Mckee, however, On Film Making deals less with dialouge and formula and more about the craft and the techniques that keep the audience drawn into the story presented as a film.
