Going to the Movies by Syd Field

Book Description

Unforgettable Insights into the Greatest Films and Filmakers of All-Time; The best-selling author of the most indispensable guides to the art and craft of screenwriting, including Screenplay and The Screenwriter's Workbook, Field was hailed by The Hollywood Reporter as "the most sought-after screenwriting teacher in the world." Legendary lecturer, teacher and author Syd Field's life in film has been filled with the greatest directors, screenwriters, actors and movies of the past 50 years. In this lively, informative memoir, he shares the lessons learned from a dazzling cast of mentors - French director Jean Renoir, famed screenwriter/director Sam Peckinpah, a young Francis Ford Coppola - and from his years of experience as a Hollywood screenwriter and reader. As he tells the story of his career, Field uses classic movies from the past and present - from Citizen Kane to Pulp Fiction to The Matrix - to illustrate the transformation of a film into an unforgettable landmark in film history and popular culture. With signature grace and charm, Field points towards the future of great film.
