Product Details


“You don’t need to be a Woody Allen fan to enjoy this book. It’s a veritable master class in filmmaking, with much to interest and amuse anyone who loves movies.” —Peter Biskind, The New York Times Book Review

“[Start to Finish is] one of the most informative and entertaining accounts of the making of a movie that I’ve ever read.” —Joe Meyers, CT News
“The book is a highly personal portrait of Allen—we see his insecurities, his vulnerabilities, and his dogged pursuit of a good story, be it for comedy or for deep examination of human morality—and the narrative is ripe with anecdotes and quotes. But the real achievement is seeing in detail the arc of any creative process. Allen fans will delight in spending time with him by proxy, and anyone interested in modern film should find much of interest in this well-reported study.” —Kirkus

“Clear and entertaining… [Start to Finish] succeeds simultaneously as biographical snapshot, primer on filmmaking, and documentary of an artwork’s creation.” —Publishers Weekly
