MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is pure gold from beginning to end. It's an absolute must for any serious filmmaker. -- Steven Soderbergh, director of Erin Brockovich and Traffic
These superbly edited interviews put you in intimate touch with some of the film world's most gifted spirits as they tell, in richly anecdotal and often humorous fashion, how they created their most memorable works. -- Richard Schickel, filmmaker, author, and Time Magazine critic
Films are national treasures. Getting a glimpse of how they are made is a treat for the film lover. Hopefully, these nominations will continue to provide that. * American Reference Books Annual, Vol. 37 (2006) *
Of all the directors here, it is Spielberg who speaks at greatest length and in most detail, and his remarks alone are worth the price of admission....budding auteurs...stand to learn a great deal from the accumulated wisdom in these pages. * The Hollywood Reporter *
...this is the kind of stuff that movie addicts will devour...Crisply edited, this truly has something to fascinate on every page. FOUR STARS * Film Review *
...highly entertaining. Whether it's Peter Jackson discussing how to coax actors into wearing the prosthetic devices they agreed to or Sam Mendes's comments on incorporating wildly different acting techniques, it all makes for rewarding reading. * Publishers Weekly *
...fascinating and insightful...a highly informative and wildly entertaining read. * Dga Quarterly, Spring 2006 *
