"The most satisfying, unputdownable book yet written about Hollywood." Clive James, "Observer" Books of the Year "Heaven's Gate" did not merely fail; it sank a studio. Michael Cimino's epic Western became a generic term for dissaster, massive miscalculation, mismanagement and extravagance. Most critics panned it. Its effect on Hollywood was a watershed; movies would never be made the same way again. Stephen Bach, Head of Production at United Artists, had been encouraged by the screenwritter William Goldman to keep a diary, and "Final Cut" is the result of his experience of working on this film; anecdotes, wit and informed opinions combine to produce an intimate and revealing view of a Hollywood that is now historical. It is interesting, too, that since this book was completed the film has been re-appraised as one of the greatest films of the 1980s.
