This review is from: Making Movies (Paperback)
This book is a gift. Few directors really explain anything of the process of film making and when they do it is basic and uninteresting. In this book Lumet talks in detail of every stage of the production of a feature film including his personal experiences as well as others. He examines film from an artistic, technical and commercial angle and does so in a wonderfully entertaining and addictive writing style. This book is an absolute must for any film student or prospective film maker.
