On the Masters of Cinema Series

"Modern directors are briefly and brilliantly profiled in sharp prose and smart pictures in these movie master-classes for film buffs and beginners."—Saga

"Short, beautifully illustrated essays on great directors."—The Times

"Exceptional value... Lively and accessible... Indispensable."—Obessed With Film

"Bargain price. Does an already saturated market need yet more auteur guides? On this evidence, yes... Briskly paced, scalpel-sharp primers... The collective quality is high, the tone scholarly but not intimidating... A triumph of layout as much as content, each book glows with gorgeous on- and off-screen archive photography... Magnifique."—Total Film
