DAVID MAMET BAMBI VS GODZILLA PDF

Is anyone shocked to hear that audience testing is ruining movies, or that producers don't respect screenwriters, or that movie stars can be spoiled brats? And contrary to the inside-flap warning that BvG will leave the "demigods and sacred cows of the movie business" quivering, Mamet doesn't name any names among the fools he's not-so-gladly suffered during his decades in the Hollywood hopper. He speaks mainly in generalities, occasionally taking a dig at a specific movie or two, but mostly pontificating about where modern mainstream cinema has gone wrong, and—more importantly—why it matters. And he does all this in a prose voice halfway between William Goldman and Ricky Roma.
