The guy's a genius!! A must-read for anyone who is an industry professional, wants to become one, or just loves motion pictures. Not only is the book full of very useful data, it's also very easy to understand and apply, and a fascinating reading. I had a hard time putting it down.

Well structured insight to the different kinds of directing

The book contains information on every relevant part of filmmaking (working with actors, editing, music, story-telling...). Each chapter starts with a small introduction into the general ideas and is followed by a nearly infinite number of well-known directors' statements (usually half to one page long), sorted by common points of view. The missing star is due to the old examples which are coming from around the 70s.
