About the Author
"By boldly questioning all the cliches and received truths about him, this book opens up a space which allows us to appreciate Elia Kazan as a much more inventive visual stylist and complicated personality than had previously been the official story. The writing throughout is informative and analytically insightful and clear-headed: a model for film studies."—Phillip Lopate
"A must for movie lovers, this terrifically readable collection is striking for its breadth of critical perspectives on a complex directorial personality. This is not just an unqualified celebration of Kazan and his work but a mosaic of very different points of view."—Molly Haskell
