A wealth of information, but in serious need of an update.
on 15 September 2016
This is overall an essential guide to film stars, crew members and filmmaking, but a lot of biographies are in serious need of revision. There are many actors, Michael Caine and Al Pacino among them, whose biography is covered extensively up until a certain point, but anything from the last two decades is skimmed over or only given a fleeting mention. That said, the filmographies for all actors and filmmakers are completely up to date, although the book would benefit from some general updates.
