Publisher's Summary

One of the greatest directors of all time, Sidney Lumet has made movies that have been nominated for more than 50 Academy Awards. Making Movies is an honest and unflinching look at the business and craft of movie making. Lumet's book reveals the ingredients for the potion that brings movie magic to life and assures one thing: you will never look at movies the same way again.

One of the better "How To's" of Movie Making.

I bought this to enjoy the memoir of Sidney Lumet and hear some of the tales of his movie-making history. But this book is actually a better "how to" about how movies are made than most books that are marketed to be educational.

Learned a lot about Hollywood History and the ins and outs of getting a story to the screen.

great stories, but...

the book was great and if you're into film history this book will be great for you! I wouldn't say that this book has much to offer the modern filmmaker besides a great history lesson on the way things used to be.
