Zoetrope: All Story

This is an unusual collection of stories and essays. Many were taken from Francis Ford Coppola’s magazine of the same title, but some were written just for the compilation. The magazine and the collection are the outgrowth of Coppolla’s idea that movies need to return to the era of great storytelling. With Zoetrope, he is trying to encourage great storytelling.
Some of the stories are great. Some are dull. Same with the essays. I really enjoyed the collection as a whole, though, especially the short essay by Mamet about Drama.
