Review quote

These two new volumes from Scarecrow Press take a scholarly, in-depth look at some of the best internationally known film directors of our time. The author's goal is to go beyond the publicity trailers and look into the artistic merit and vision of the directors as well as their purpose in creating the film. The titles provide more than just biographical data and filmographies, they also provide insight into how the film directors use film to promote political, historical, and social agendas...Cardullo has written several books and journal articles on film and drama and his knowledge and love of the industry show through in these volumes. These titles would be valuable additions to any large university's film studies collection. American Reference Books Annual
