Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sequel to the critically acclaimed My First Movie, Stephen Lowenstein once again talks to some of our most celebrated filmmakers about their debut films. Lowenstein interviews ten directorsabout their career-launching film and how they got the movie off the ground: how they raised the finance, found actors, searched for locations, worked with the crew and saw the project through to completion. Filmmakersinterviewed include Richard Linklater on Slacker; Alejandro Gonzaaacute;lez Inntilde;arritu on Amores Perros; Terry Gilliam on Jabberwocky; and SamMendes on American Beauty. A wonderfully rich compendium that is lively, informative, funny, and often surprising.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
