Movie Makers: 50 Iconic Directors

Ian Freer

Movie Makers traces the evolution of cinema from the silent era to the present through the lives and works of 50 great directors. Opening with D.W. Griffith – the founding father of American cinema – and closing with Quentin Tarantino – the architect of controversially violent, but iconic, films – Ian Freer presents a remarkable range of cinema's luminaries. Writing with infectious enthusiasm, he profiles the masters of cinema, such as Hitchcock, Scorsese, Luis Bunuel and Jean-Luc Godard. Accompanying each chapter is a list of 'must-see movies' showcasing their very best work.
