About this product
- DescriptionWhy does a director choose a particular script? What must they do in order to keep actors fresh and truthful through take after take of a single scene? How do you stage a shootout involving more than one hundred extras and three colliding taxis in the heart of New York s diamond district? What does it take to keep the studio honchos happy? From the first rehearsal to the final screening, <i>Making Movies</i> is a master s take, delivered with clarity, candor, and a wealth of anecdote. For in this book, Sidney Lumet, one of our most consistently acclaimed directors, gives us both a professional memoir and a definitive guide to the art, craft, and business of the motion picture. Drawing on forty years of experience on movies that range from <i>Long Day s Journey into Night</i> to <i>Network</i> and <i>The Verdict</i> and with such stars as Katharine Hepburn, Paul Newman, Marlon Brando, and Al Paci Lumet explains how painstaking labor and inspired split-second decisions can result in two hours of screen magic.
