a smoking gun, totally inside baseball, and carefully noted with the sort of detail that is both analytical and anectdotal. Howard Suber is a star!

Pair this book with Steven Bach's Final Cut and you have a stark picture of the film industry that while there can be glory, greed and power is really the final pitch for most everyone involved.

Shelves: fluff
Well written, entertaining, informative, and at least twice as long as it needed to be.
