MEDIA REVIEWS
Many of the names of the men interviewed in this book will not be familiar to the general public, but the movies they have choreographed through their cinematography will be. They play a key role in bringing movies to life by conveying both the visions of the director and the screenwriter through cinematography. Among the 13 interviewed are Chris Menges (e.g., The Killing Fields, The Reader), Freddie Francis (e.g., The Elephant Man, Glory), and Gilbert Taylor (e.g., Dr. Strangelove, Star Wars). In the interviews the author touches on such topics as memorable experiences on the sets of famous movies, what it is really like to work with famous directors, and how they broke into and moved up in the film industry. With the wide interest in cinematography and film making today, this will be a useful and popular title in a wide range of libraries, including those that serve film students, film scholars, and professors. * American Reference Books Annual *
