"In Down and Dirty Pictures, Biskind takes on the movie industry of the 1990s and again gets the story....Peter Biskind captures his era as John Dunne did that of the Zanucks." (The New York Times)
"Dishy, teeming, superbly reported...packed with lively inside anecdotes...[a] juicy and fascinating expose." (Entertainment Weekly)
"Want to know about Indie films? A must listen"
I am a student studying film and this book has proven to be fascinating for many reasons. For one I goes a really well written and interesting insight into how it is done in the real world if film. I also had worked well as something I could quote from and talk about in Uni work. Lots of useful information on how filmmakers such as Soderbergh, Tarantino and Smith began and worked in an Indie environment.
Very well read as well with good voices and well paced.
I would defiantly recommend!
This audio book is more relevant now than ever! It is vital for anyone working in film or with an interest. It also has an amazing narrative, so it['s not boring! Like a work of fiction, there are strong character stories all the way through... I found this impossible to put away and have enjoyed every minute of it! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
