    • Greenaway is a remarkable filmmaker - for "The Falls" if for nothing else. But his work can be a extremely terse and "rigorous". In the end, though, he builds a peculiar relationship with the spectator, and I think that perhaps this book of interviews helps to understand how a guy like Greenaway could manage to make movies, while millions of other obsessives wallow in obscurity.
