Film Directors A-Z Summary


Film Directors A-Z: The Art of the World's Greatest Film-Makers by Geoff Andrew

Directors A-Z is a visual guide to 260 of the all time greatest directors, covering the masters of classical Hollywood cinema, contemporary film-making and world cinema. Each director is given just a page and a single film still that typifies their work. The accompanying text explores how each director exploits the cinematic arts - composition, colour, camera angle and movement, lighting, sound, sets and action - to convey the recurring themes and artistic vision that run through their work. This deceptively simple premise builds into one of the most fascinating, visually arresting and insightful film books there has ever been. Never have the words written about cinema and its images been so closely tied together. The result is an entertaining and genuinely enlightening work of reference.
