Walter Murch is a philosopher who happens to work in the movie business. There are some who have their say with words. He has his say with words, sound, and visuals. It doesn't matter if you would like to be in front of the camera, or behind, read In the Blink of an Eye. Read Michael Ondaatje's book where Murch talks in detail about life and filmmaking. Not to be missed, Behind The Seen. Rent Apocalypse Now: Redux. Make full use of that surround sound system you've set up. Don't have that luxury? (I don't) Slap on a pair of headphones and then watch the film (Like I have). Rent The Conversation. It's a Coppola/Murch masterpiece!
