A very good book that serves as combination memoir of Mr. George's personal history with the movies (as viewer, reviewer, and creator), and a look at the history of black films and filmmaking from the 1960's on. There is a focus on 1991, when 19 films were released that had been directed by African-Americans.There is also a solid production diary section on the making of CB4, which George produced and co-wrote with Chris Rock.

always enjoy mr george's writing
