The first of three volumes, the others to look at British and European directors and at world cinema directors. Entries profile the lives and work of movie directors in (but not necessarily from) North America who have had feature films released for theatrical exhibition in the last decade or so. Some makers of animated or documentary films are also included, but more extensive coverage of them must wait for subsequent editions, which are projected for about every two years. Film titles are indexed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

"It is not too much to say that this volume reconfigures and transforms the landscape of contemporary film criticism." -- Film Quarterly

"Offers an extremely useful, incisive and lucid account of an extraordinary range of modern American filmmakers." -- Geoff Andrew, "Time Out"

"MUST BUY... the prose is clear and accessible... an invaluable reference tool and a thoroughly enjoyable read... threatens to become indispensable." -- "Empire"

"An excellent launch and a real bargain for the quality... judgments are informative, perceptive and on the mark... currency with freshman directors... Highly recommended for all film studies collections." -- "Library Journal"

"As an encyclopaedia of the individual works and backgrounds of the chosen directors, this is a very satisfying, informative reference book. The biographical notes are pertinent and illuminating especially for emerging directors trying to find their own vision." -- "6degrees.co.uk"
