Interesting but a bit of a mish-mash,
This review is from: Blade Runners, Deer Hunters & Blowing the Bloody Doors Off: My Life in Cult Movies (Paperback)
I have to say that on the whole I enjoyed this book - as an insight into what a film producer actually does it's a decent introduction. And since Michael Deeley worked on "The Italian Job", "The Deer Hunter" "The Man who Fell To Earth" and "Blade Runner" his case studies and anecdotes are entertaining and interesting.
However on the downside, it does come across at various points as someone who has a few scores to settle within the movie industry - Sam Peckinpah, Michael Cimino, Christopher Lee and the Grade brothers (particularly Bernard Delfont) all get it in the neck. (Indeed, as if to confirm the constant tension between producer and director, most of the directors he works with get some pointed criticism). The one exception being Ridley Scott - despite his apparent behaviour towards his crew and his budgetary overruns on Blade Runner.
Nevertheless, for the Blade Runner chapters alone, it's worth a read
