Those lucky enough to take Howard Subers legendary classes in UCLAs Film School made many others want to read his book-in-progress. Now that he has delivered it, filmmakers, scholars, and anyone else with a serious interest in film can rejoice. A fascinating and thought-provoking work. Alexander Payne, Director/Screenwriter, Sideways, About Schmidt What Aristotle did for drama, Howard Suber has now done for film. This is a profound and succinct book that is miraculously fun to read. David Koepp, Screenwriter, War of the Worlds, Spider-Man, Mission Impossible, Jurassic Park William Goldman, who said nobody knows anything about Hollywood films, probably never took a class from Howard Suber. Put this book on the shelf between Aristotles Poetics and your OED; Professor Suber knows more about whats important about film storytelling than anyone Ive ever encountered, and he presents it here in an incredibly clear, useful, and provocative way. Dan Pyne, Screenwriter, The Manchurian Candidate, The Sum of All Fears, Any Given Sunday "Howard Suber's understanding of film storytelling fills the pages of this wise, liberating book. Much of it is surprisingly contrary to what 'everyone knows.' Aremarkable work." - Francis Ford Coppola
