Pretty enjoyable book that provides a nice overview of many directors who held singular and unique visions and were, nevertheless, forced to operate outside of the studio system. Not completely comprehensive and focused mainly on plot details and interviews.
This is a nice overview of rebellious japanese cinema. However, I was hoping for something meatier. It does serve well as a guide for Netflix rentals.

Not comprehensive in any way. But it does have some good info on a few great directors. I still refer to this one from time to time.
