it was amazing

This is a great straight ahead bio on one of the great film directors of the 20th Century. I am a raving Melville fan, and this guy's work is magnificent. He's also an interesting man. Totally in love with American pop culture, he was also an independent filmmaker in Paris. Had his own studio in his home, and pretty much separate himself from others in their work methods. He loved to work late at night. A fantastic man. A fantastic book. Get it!
