Description
This entertaining collection of pieces from the acclaimed director of Breaker Morant, Driving Miss Daisy and Mao's Last Dancer features memoirs, brief lives and revealing accounts of the film world.

Alongside unsung heroes from behind the camera and producers of dubious repute are Madeleine St John and Clive James, Margaret Olley and Jeffrey Smart, as well as a particularly seductive 1963 EH Holden - and Bruce Beresford's father, whose strange and startling decline in old age is charted in a brilliant, poignant essay.

Opinionated, wry and engaging,The Best Film I Never Madewill provoke and delight in equal measure. It is the ideal gift not only for cinema buffs but for anyone interested in music, art or literature.
