What will make a film director better? # of films s/he made on books, or # of books written on films


A good film indeed gives a lot of work in the aftermath. Books on making, inclusion in top films... So on and so forth. And making a film on a good book has challenges one too many. They director has to face a lot of heat. So what makes a film director good. More films directed based on books? Or more books written on his/her films? None? Why?

    What a great answer. I loved the part "WANTS to make". Making money is one thing, but making it without compromises is another. And when it comes to James Cameron, who cares about books, he will cover up by number of biographies :D

    That was a very different perspective, and indeed good one.

    I liked your answer, and information/opinions you embed with it - and that's what the question was intending at. It was an open ended thing, with the none option - which you agreed with, meant to ask the readers state their views.

    I agree till some extent. A commercial failure can be a great movie, but in general would be critically acclaimed at least.

    Another food for thought, how odd, Oscar Wilde is himself famous, though I'm not too sure of extent of his material success

    The implementation of planning, execution etc. - the process - is indeed extremely important. Liked your perspective.
