Polanski was nominated... more...

  • Orson Wellesby Martin Fitzgerald

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2000; US$ 5.99

    A fat guy with a deep voice who drank a lot of sherry? An unreliable film-maker who always went over time and over budget? One of the most innovative storytellers of the century?

  • Quentin Tarantinoby D.K. Holm

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2004; US$ 7.99

    Few directors exploded on the scene with the force of Quentin Tarantino back in 1992 with Reservoir Dogs. And even fewer directors saw their reputations plummet so fast so soon thereafter.

  • Martin Scorseseby Paul Duncan

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2003; US$ 7.99

  • George Lucasby James Clarke

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2002; US$ 5.99

    Whether it?s a bright yellow Deuce Coupe rocketing through small-town America or a bright yellow rocket ship blasting through a galaxy far, far away, George Lucas? stories have been singular and consistent in the elemental power of their themes and emotions. Yet, since the beginnings of his success much of his storytelling skill has been eclipsed... more...

  • Joel and Ethan Coenby John Ashbrook; Ellen Cheshire

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2005; US$ 8.99

    Intelligent, experimental, frightening, funny and always delightfully surprising, Coen brothers' films mark a constant high-point in the cinema of the Eighties and Nineties.

Only in the skewed world of Billy Wilder would such situations provide the context... more...
