Inhaltsangabe: This series of handbooks covering the performing arts aims to provide approachable, practical and informed introductions to specific areas within the arts to help the reader build up a personal network of knowledge by tracing connections across the field. A concise and readable text, this is for all people who find enjoyment in the cinematic world. The 220 entries cover every significant film maker in world cinema in the 20th century and discuss films in the context of the director's other works. It includes many contemporary film makers not listed in any other work and there is a comprehensive index, to enable the reader to instantly look up a particular movie.
From Library Journal:
Since Andrew's book focuses on film directors (basically ignoring actors, screenwriters, etc.) the title is a bit misleading. For each of the 200 directors included, Andrew has written an essay of about 800 words. Each entry gives some biographical information and outlines the director's career, evaluating important films and noting distinguishing traits. Some errors have slipped through (e.g., Budd Boetticher was not born in "Chicago, Ohio") but no more than is usual in film books. Andrew's criticism has a leftist slant, and he also denigrates mainstream filmmakers like William Wyler, Billy Wilder, and David Lean in favor of cult figures and mavericks such as Nicholas Ray, Douglas Sirk, and Jim Jarmusch. Those sharing Andrew's sympathies will want this; others needing a biographical dictionary of film directors might consider the more even-handed and comprehensive (but more expensive) two-volume World Film Directors, edited by John Wakeman ( LJ 4/15/88; an LJ "Best Reference Book of 1988"). For more books in this new series see below in Reference section.--Ed.
