Book Review - Making Movies
Making Movies by Sidney Lumet
rating: 5 of 5 stars
One of my all time favorite 'theory' books, mostly because Lumet handles the content from a much more practical stand point then the usual writer. He manages to sum up not just the roles of the director and writer, but, everybody up and down the credit list, and to do it with practical examples, and to clearly define just what film is capable of, and why it so rarely achieves those goals.
I reread this book at least once a year, and every year find myself finding more and more applicable to my work and creative process.
