    Description

    A Long Time Ago in a Cutting Room Far, Far Away is a behind-the-scenes look at some of the most influential films of the last 50 years by Paul Hirsch, a film editor who worked on more than 40 features. 

    Starting with his work on Carrie, Hirsch gives insight into the production process, touching upon casting, directing, cutting, and scoring. It’s a riveting look at the decisions that went into creating memorable and iconic scenes and offers fascinating portraits of filmmakers, stars, and composers.

    Part film-school primer, part paean to legendary directors and professionals, the funny yet insightful writing will entertain and inform aficionados and casual moviegoers alike.

    A fascinating look “behind the curtain”..

    A great longitudinal look at the development of a film editor and his career. It is peppered with fun and insightful morsels from films, both hits and disasters.

    The performer was an excellent choice, it was easy to imagine that the author was reading his own work.

    Very enjoyable audio book.

    Enjoyable listen for fans of film and film Editing

    I listened to all 15 hrs of this over the course of a month or so. I have to say, the beginning was a lot more interesting, hearing about how he got in the business working alongside Brian DePalma and then of course editing the first two Star Wars films. After a while though it gets a bit repetitive, though never outright boring. Some of the films he made later on he barely mentions at all, assuming no one cares. I wanted to know more about Raising Cain but he pretty much glossed over it. It started to get a little more interesting at the end though as his role changes a bit. Overall, an enjoyable listen with a good presentation.

    Fantastic Book

    Loved everything about this book. I happen to be a filmmaker, so I knew first hand many of things Mr. Hirsch addresses in the book, but even people unfamiliar with moviemaking will find this book a fascinating peek behind the curtain, as well as a wonderful account of a life well lived telling stories.

    Great, funny, sad, basically all the emotions!

    This is just a informed and illuminating book about a little understood part of the filmmaking process.

    Outstanding!

    Paul Hirsch describes himself as, “having a charmed life” while talking about his extraordinary career. This book is a wonderful mix of the technical side of editing and the personal relationships you form in the business. Along with that, the stories behind so many legendary directors, actors, and films we’ve come to love are all unique and very entertaining. This is a must for any movie fan and I highly recommend it

    A must for any 70’s/80’s film nerd

    Confession: I’m a big De Palma fan, and this book delivered on some great stories from Paul & Brian’s collaborations. My only wish is that Paul had gone into more detail on putting together keys scenes on Raising Cain and Mission:Impossible like he did with Carrie. His description of constructing the finale in Carrie is wonderful. Another highlight are the stories of working with Barnard Herrmann.

    It leaves you wanting more, which I suppose is what a great editor would want. Maybe there will be a sequel??

    Excellent, coherent and transparent.....

    Unlike many Hollywood bios, this one, by arguably the finest editor of the '80s, is transparent and humble and resonates truthfulness that is refreshing and informative. Hirsch's love and respect of and fascination with his particular field is apparent through the telling of his own interesting narrative while the grudges and bitterness that is usually present in many of these types of bios is noticeably absent. Well worth the time.

    Very Enjoyable!

    Having spent many hours in a Avid Bay shaping storylines this book was an obvious choice.

    It delivered too! His ascend in Hollywood working on Star Wars and Ray were especially interesting as was the times he went to London working on the score for various films. It was neat seeing the many connections and people who disappointed Paul. It’s also a little sad the friends you make only to realize many decades later many are short term when you run into them or they pop up as you ended up never seeing them again. Although this book is in my wheelhouse; I finish it by thinking anyone who loves Hollywood and movies just a little bit will enjoy this book.

    Amazing...for the Film Buff

    A Long Time Ago in a Cutting Room Far, Far Away is astonishing. What one can learn from a book sometimes is amazing. I didn’t go into this audiobook looking to learn anything. However, Paul Hirsch demonstrated just how important editing is to a movie. Some people just slap things together and hope for the best. But a great editor will look at every frame as if they are puzzle pieces and put them exactly in the right spot. Whether it’s cutting out an entire subplot of a film or something so minuscule as putting a line of dialogue from later in the picture in the beginning - editing is an art and Hirsch is its Picasso.
    Paul Hirsch has been doing this for 50 years and has some great stories to tell along the way. His interactions; from the great Bernard Hermann to helping out the up and coming directors of today like Duncan Jones are all fascinating to a film buff such as myself.
    In addition, Hirsch is humble beyond measure. He has become friendly with some of the truly great Hollywood artists and never once has he lost sight of the end goal: make the movie the best it can be!
    The only qualm I have with the audiobook is the narrator and his habit of stretching out the last bit of every sentence. For instance: it seems as if he’s saying Star Warssss instead of just Star Wars. It’s totally a minor nitpick, but it’s very noticeable.
