Format: Paperback
I first encountered the "Close-up" series while visiting London last year. I snatched up every title I could find. These short examinations of filmaker's lives are just the right length and breadth. For those who already are familiar with the director you'll find new insight, and for those uninformed, a detailed look at each film, and the harrowing journey to make it, is enlightening. With Coppola, his journey spans many decades and is thoroughly fascinating. You'll find the struggles and tribulations he faced, along with some quirky personality traits best left to the reader. Overall, a good read.
