Bambi vs. Godzilla: On the Nature, Purpose, and Practice of the Movie Business

Bambi vs. Godzilla: On the Nature, Purpose, and Practice of the Movie Business

David Mamet


From the Academy Award-nominated screenwriter and playwright: an exhilaratingly subversive within examine Hollywood from a filmmaker who’s continuously performed through his personal principles. Who relatively reads the scripts on the movie studios? How is a screenplay like a personals advert? Why are there such a lot of manufacturers indexed in motion picture credit? And what in the world do these manufacturers do besides? Refreshingly unafraid to offend, Mamet offers hilarious, staggering, and refreshingly forthright solutions to those and different questions on each element of filmmaking from inspiration to script to reveal. A bracing, no-holds-barred exam of the unusual contradictions of Tinseltown, Bambi vs. Godzilla dissects the films with Mamet’s signature variety and wit.
