Basing his discussion on anonymity-guaranteed interviews with some 30 film directors, Rothman (emeritus, public policy and social research, U. of California, Los Angeles) offers candid insider takes on the current Hollywood film-making environment and an analysis of the sociological forces that facilitate and limit creative processes. E.g. he examines the special challenges that women and minorities face in the director's chair. Also included are directors' awards and nominations, supplementary sources, and photos.
