"One of the strongest directors out there - an artist committed to making us see the world for what it is." - (New Yorker)
Maxwell puts forward some interesting ideas but he doesn't bother to develop them very much. For a subject as broad and as profound as acting and performance, an hour long book is shockingly short.
