The book - each film prefaced by a beautiful still - is peppered with anecdotes and observations about the relevant filmmakers. It's a delight and a must-read for any and all cinephiles. I wish it was longer - and still in print! - but regardless what we have is a lovely testament to Almendros' skill.
