This is an excellet and insightful deep penetration look at the financing behind Hollywood pictures and how it takes the upper hand. Although Mr. Epstein, an investigative journalist, originally out of New York, doesn't explain every financial concoction (that would require a book ten times as long) he writes a very concise summary of the overarching picture and structure. Highly recommended!

A great read about the financing system of the movie industry. Interesting, changes topics and a farly easy read.
