A great talent!

A very insightful book by one of the great talents! You don't have to be in the industry to enjoy this book. It rights like an autobiography but for those in the business of film it is also a guide. Mr. Lumet manages to put his finger on how he harnessed his creative impulse to make great movies. A fun, educational read!
