This book of interviews with the German director Fritz Lang represents the best introduction to his career. Lang spells out what to work for the movies really means. Lang analyzes the magic of the Hollywood productions as well as the shadows of the star system. These interviews illustrate the nightmares and despair of a creative director struggling with the Hollywood tycoons. In this respect, Lang presents the Hollywood producters of the 1940s and 50s as being more interested in money than in cinema. His portrait of them is somewhat bitter but represents an essential guide to understand the very entrails of Hollywood's production.The book is an invitation to appreciate the ethical and aesthetic dimensions of Lang's cinema. The book will represent a source of inspiration for new directors.
