Observe as one of the best writers and directors goes from blank page to theater-ready film.The resulting chronicle by author Eric Lax is a unique handbook for how movies are made, at least when one person makes all the decisions and that person is Woody Allen. Actors don't audition for Allen.Allen avoids ordering an original score, preferring to use existing music that he selects from his own library and matches to the mood he wants in a scene.Allen's demand for a professional set and his power over the project result in a quiet chronicle, but Lax rewards students of cinema with a clear-eyed view of the craft and a sharp portrait of one of its most creative minds at work.
