2009 The View From the Bridge.png

Nicholas Meyer's rollicking account of his Hollywood career as an Oscar-nominated screenwriter (The Seven-Per-Cent Solution), director (The Day After, the most watched television film of all time), and hyphenate, (writing and/or directing Star Treks II, IV and VI). In addition to Star Trek lore and Sherlock Holmes anecdotes, this is Meyer's autobiographical take on life inside the sausage factory that is Hollywood. Everything from psychoanalysis to nuclear war, from editing to egomania finds its way into this drolly thoughtful and informed view of movies, who and how they are made.
