3.0 out of 5 stars How It Happened Here, 30 April 2012

This review is from: How It Happened Here (Paperback)
This is a very interesting book for anyone who has either been involved with, or is considering getting involved with a low-budget or no-budget film, if they also have aspirations towards commercial distribution; although the content is historical, realistically, the attitudes of the people who are part of the commercial movie-making machine will not have changed a great deal in the intervening period. The more you can do for yourself, so that you do not have to rely on support from people with no artistic vision, the better it will be.

I did think that this book was a bit lightweight, given the complexity of the project, and the contentious nature of the subject matter, but there are plenty of useful photographs, so all in all, it is a good read, especially if you already know the film; if not, it should prove a good incentive to see the film, which is a very creditworthy effort for two young men of such tender years, especially given the period in which it was made.
