I think Bach the author of this overestimated the fascination non movie executives would have for business deals that movie executives make but it s certainly extremely well written and perceptive about movies What really makes this book interesting is the film that it s about I saw the full 3 hour 39 minute version of Heaven s Gate on MGM recently and so picked up the book and there s no doubt in my mind that it s a major work one of the most beautiful movies ever made It throws up the ancient uestion of do you need to care about the characters to enjoy a film I didn t remotely care about any of them but for me the 3 and a half hours flew by because the film is so alive This conundrum is articulated really well in the book Bach is fully aware of the visionary nature of the work he is sanctioning but he s also in horror at the level of indulgence reuired to produce such a singular vision and he can t find the mental euilibrium reuired to get a handle on the situation And so Cimino one of the most mysterious men in Hollywood history pursues his vision all the way There s no doubt the result is worth seeing and the book is good too
