Why does a director choose a particular script? What must they do in order to keep actors fresh and truthful through take after take of a single scene? How do you stage a shootout—involving more than one hundred extras and three colliding taxis—in the heart of New York’s diamond district? What does it take to keep the studio honchos happy? From the first rehearsal to the final screening,  Making Movies  is a master’s take, delivered with clarity, candor, and a wealth of anecdote. For in this book, Sidney Lumet, one of our most consistently acclaimed directors, gives us both a professional memoir and a definitive guide to the art, craft, and business of the motion picture. Drawing on forty years of experience on movies that range from  Long Day’s Journey into Night  to  Network  and  The Verdict —and with such stars as Katharine Hepburn, Paul Newman, Marlon Brando, and Al Pacino—Lumet explains how painstaking labor and inspired split-second decisions can result in two hours of screen magic.

The retail banking sector has undergone immense change over the last decade, such that the industry is barely recognisable. The creation of the European Single Market has of necessity initiated deregulation, whilst the increase in telephone and internet banking has impacted on economies of scale. Financial services organisations are now able to compete in previously uncharted territory, to considerable effect. Taking the reader on a journey of discovery through the economic theory behind the practice and the consequences that follow, the authors have created a fascinating insight into the current state of European retail banking. The authors use their extensive research to display the rationale behind the increasing trend towards consolidation and efficiency. Well argued and well researched, this is a must read for all people with an interest in the European Banking market, from investors to bankers and students alike.

MASTERING ELLIOTT WAVE PRINCIPLE WITH TWENTY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE helping traders become more proficient in applying the Elliott Wave Principle (EWP) to their trading endeavors, author Connie Brown knows how difficult it can be. But over the years—as her skills have been shaped by the markets and the traders she has mentored—Brown has refined her way of teaching this subject so that even the most challenged individual may finally see markets move within correct wave patterns. While EWP can be a tough topic, this book eases you into the technique by taking you step by step through Elliott Wave analysis. Preliminary coaching unravels common misunderstandings that tend to sabotage those getting started. First, you'll discover how price swings and waves are not the same. Then you'll see how the elements of balance and proportion, skills developed from the study of geometry, are not subjective.
