Review

A treasure ... I'm not going to look at performances quite the same way ... A grand entertainment with more drama than most movies ... He's a marvelous teacher ... A real clear-cut lesson that every critic should see and everbody who goes to the movies should see... --Gene Siskel, Siskel & Ebert

I watched the video and had my doubts ... I thought a lot of what he said was horseshit, but halfway through the movie I thought: The son of a bitch is right! --Howard Stern

For a student of film acting, this DVD is a rare chance to get good, solid, practical advice from a successful working actor. Mr. Caine presents information in a down to earth and entertaining way to both a panel of students and a studio audience.

My only complaint is that it should have run longer than 1 hour. I realize that the production was bound by the restraints of the television series, but as a DVD release more could have been included.

Highly recommended as is Mr. Caine's companion book 'Acting In Film'.

I'm an actress - always on the lookout for fabulous things to inspire or teach me in my work. Mr. Caine does both! I love it so much, I have the book AND the DVD. It's brilliant.

This is essential not only for students of acting, but for writers, as well as for anyone who loves movies and sometimes wonders what makes some of them work, while others collapse.

This is worth every penny to gain the insight of one of the world's great actors. Easy to watch and implement, these techniques should be required viewing for any actor today.

I have always liked Michael Caine movies after seeing "Sleuth". He is amazing and has an extensive variety of roles that he has brought to life.
