Editorial Reviews

Review

What a great salute to a true American original - our great scrutinizer, the filmmaker Fred Wiseman. In celebrating the fierce mastery of his eye and ear, the generous wisdom of his editing, and the enduring grip of his influence, the essays collected here (not least, his own) are full of essential insights into his work, and taken together they pay him the highest homage: they make you want -- no, they make you need -- to watch his movies again and again. --Philip Gourevitch, author of We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will be Killed With Our Families: Stories from Rwanda

Excellent essays on master filmmaker and Wiseman's own brief disarming and witty intro. C. Ricks' essay brilliant and profound. Every essay in this book interesting and I insightful.
