Quotes & Awards

  •  “Invaluable…I am sometimes asked if there is one book a filmgoer could read to learn about how movies are made and what to look for while watching them. This is the book.”

    Roger Ebert, New York Times Book Review

  • “Lumet, the acclaimed director of such films as Dog Day Afternoon and Network, presents an anecdotal insider’s account of the key elements in filmmaking.”

    Publishers Weekly

  •  “Lumet’s book is about the agonizing and ultimately rewarding art of filmmaking. And who better to elucidate the process than a legendary director…? Lumet discusses writers and actors, camera and editing techniques, art direction and sound. Yet Making Movies is anything but a clinical textbook…A fascinating look at the artist at work.”

    Library Journal

  • “Lumet…may be the first to cover the process in detail from beginning to end, without missing any point of the action…The excitement of the book lies in Lumet’s encounters with other artists.”
