First Cut Reviews


"This superb collection of interviews illuminates the art of film editing with a level of detail and insight that few previous books have possessed. . . . Through descriptions of the cutting of key sequences in films directed by Coppola, De Palma, Forman, Pollack, Lumet, and others, Oldham's interviewees reveal not just the mechanics of cutting shots together but also how an editor is guided intuitively by the 'inner rhythm' of a sequence. . . . This book is indispensable for all those who wish to deepen their understanding of the editor's contribution to film structure."--Stephen Prince, "Film Quarterly
