The Conversations

I’m reading a book now that I absolutely love. The Conversations: Walter Murch and the Art of Editing Film is a series of conversations between author Michael Ondaatje and editor Walter Murch. It’s an amazing glimpse into the creative processes of both men and jam-packed with insights into editing. Every single time I open the book I learn something new. Both of them love telling stories and sharing them. Ondaatje is probably my favourite author with an ability to craft sentences and paragraphs that I just read over and over again. Murch is the editor who crafted the Godfather films, created the soundscapes in Apocalypse Now (and edited Apocalypse Now Redux”) and The Conversation as well as many others with Francis Ford Coppola. One of my favourite overlooked films is Romeo is Bleeding and I just found out that he cut that as well! I could go on and on about the book, but it would be faster for you to just get it and read it.
