About this title

Synopsis:

"I just did it, and I probably made more mistakes than the average person who makes a first film. I didn’t really have any help, and I wouldn’t take any help. I had to do it on my own. Once I made my first film I considered myself a film-maker. I lost all interest in the theater and never went back"—Monte Hellman

In 1970, an LA Times headline described Monte Hellman as "Hollywood’s best kept secret". More than thirty years later, Hellman and his work are still secrets, his genius recognized only by a small but passionate group of admirers. This book is both a biography of Hellman and a critical study of his films, which include The Shooting, Two-Lane Blacktop and Ride in the Whirlwind. It also covers films to which Hellman has contributed as an editor, actor and producer, as well as those on which he has worked, in various capacities, without onscreen credit, such as Shatter and Robocop. Attention is focused on the hallmarks of Hellman’s work, including his dominant themes and obsessive characters, and all the films are subjected to close stylistic analysis.
