Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2003-11-15)

Director Waters is known for his flamboyant avant-gar de films, and his 1986 book is no less garish. There is no subject that Waters is unwilling to discuss, with most of it fun and nonsense, but his advice on making feature films with almost no money can be taken to heart. This edition has been slightly updated with new material.
