Book DescriptionAnthony Minghella, the writer and director behind films like Truly Madly Deeply, The English Patient and The Talented Mr Ripley, here explores his own work and the art of film-making. He offers candid commentary and fascinating insights with chapters on subjects from the practical - 'Writing' or 'The Business of Film' - to the philosophical - 'Structure' or 'Theories, Poetry and Mortality'. With a preface by Sydney Pollack, this book is essential for admirers of the director's work, or indeed for anyone enthusiastic about cinema in general. Minghella on Minghella is an opportunity to know what went on behind the camera - and the eyes - of one of the genre's greatest modern practitioners.
