Review:

"Film would be a better place if every director were required to share with other romancers of film his process. It is a gift to us all that it is Sidney Lumet, one of American's greatest filmmakers, who is sharing his point-of-view." --Stephen Spielberg

"Invaluable. . . . I am sometimes asked if there is one book a filmgoer could read to learn more about how movies are made and what to look for while watching them. This is the book." --Roger Ebert, The New York Times Book Review

"Remarkable . . . . as dignified as the movies [Lumet] has made and yet deeply felt and very moving. . . . Anyone who truly loves movies ought to read what he has to say about them. . . . Delightfully engrossing." --Los Angeles Times

"The film bible from a master. It tells in meticulous detail the step-by-step process of making a movie. You feel you're on the set. A must." --Quincy Jones

"Full of energy, enthusiasm and wisdom. . . . It's all engrossing because [Lumet] speaks so fervently and opinionatedly about matters on which he has earned the right to opinions." --The New Republic
