5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, honest and amusing insights, 3 Feb 2012
This review is from: Dream Repairman: Adventures in Film Editing (Paperback)
I don't hesitate to give this five stars, despite the rather amateurish quality of the writing. This isn't about the writing. It's about a successful, talented, world-weary movie editor considerately passing on a whole career's worth of hard-won wisdom and life experience.

It's all done with such humour and honesty that the less than polished writing style actual seems to add something. How often do you see the movie business through the eyes of anyone but the directors and actors? In this book it's the Editor, the quiet guy who sees everyone's weaknesses, their poor performances, foolish deviations from the plan, and bad scripts.

The title Dream Repairman refers to the work of pouring over the heart-breaking miles of dull, repetitive footage, working with the poor coverage, bad acting, and then doing the impossible - making it work.
