5.0 out of 5 stars Great words, shame about the book..., 14 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Battle of "Brazil": Terry Gilliam V Universal Pictures - The Fight to the Final Cut of a Film Classic (Applause Screenplay Series): Terry ... Pictures in the Fight to the Final Cut (Paperback)
Mathews' book is compulsive reading (I devoured it in one sitting). While the polemic about the stupidity of Scheiberg et al is entertaining to start with, I just wish there had been a little more attempt at balance: the unrelenting depiction of them as philistine morons gets wearisome after a while. In any case, the full story, complete with the script, makes this a must. This would be a book to read again and again...
...if the damn thing wasn't falling apart. The pages are not very well bound, so delicacy when reading is strongly advised; an unfortunate fate for such a page-turner.
