Good writing advice, bad directing advice
on November 16, 2015
I'm really disappointed with this book. A very boring read because of the presentation of the material. It all boils down to 2 examples (1. Student gaining respect of the professor 2. Farmer who has to sell his pig) is which are discussed in a very bland way. There is some good writing advice in there often referring to Aristotles basics. The directing advice looked bad to me because of over simplification. He seems to have a very different opinion of actors, than most directors. I also found a lot of ranting about American films in general, Hollywood and acting. I wish I read the negative reviews before buying it.
