On the Masters of Cinema Series "Modern directors are briefly and brilliantly profiled in sharp prose and smart pictures in these movie master-classes for film buffs and beginners."-Saga "Short, beautifully illustrated essays on great directors."-The Times "Exceptional value... Lively and accessible... Indispensable."-Obessed With Film "Bargain price. Does an already saturated market need yet more auteur guides? On this evidence, yes... Briskly paced, scalpel-sharp primers... The collective quality is high, the tone scholarly but not intimidating... A triumph of layout as much as content, each book glows with gorgeous on- and off-screen archive photography... Magnifique."-Total Film
