1 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Ace Hannah on September 14, 2008
Format: Paperback
A terrific filmmaking memoir, unique in perspective and hilariously-candid. Mr Becker's self-portrait bursts with love for cinema, provides valuable practical insight into the moviemaking process, and simultaneously shines a blinding floodlight on the nerve-shattering, often-overwhelming struggles of the professional film writer/director. Great stuff!
