Product description

Review

‘A total page-turner. The anecdotes, the characters, the fights, the stress of independent film-making are here in all their full-bloodedness’ -- Independent

‘As gripping and compelling as the fastest-paced thriller … unmissable *****’ -- Hotdog

‘Dishy, teeming, superbly reported … a juicy and fascinating exposé’ -- Entertainment Weekly

‘Smart and funny … It’s a real rollercoaster ride’ -- New York Observer

‘Thoughtful, gossipy, and altogether mesmerising ... A shamelessly good read’ -- New York Times

Synopsis

In the late 1980s a generation of filmmakers began to flower outside the Hollywood studio system and in the following decade, the independent film movement bloomed. Dozens of lesser-known filmmakers such as Steven Soderbergh and Quentin Tarantino began walking away with coveted prizes at Cannes and eventually the Academy Awards. Many of these directors were discovered at Robert Redford's Sundance Film Festival and then scooped up by Harvey and Bob Weinstein, whose company Miramax laid waste to the competition. In Down and Dirty Pictures, Peter Biskind tells the incredible story of these filmmakers, the growth of Sundance into the premier showcase of independent film, and the meteoric rise of the controversial Weinstein brothers who left a trail of carnage in their wake yet created an Oscar factory that is the envy of the studios.
