I've been intrigued by Mike Figgis since we saw Time Code during the rehearsals for A Day in the Life -- it's a flawed movie, but an incredibly interesting idea. And Leaving Las Vegas was gut-wrenchingly good, so I knew he had chops. So I was looking forward to reading Digital Filmmaking. And indeed there's some practical advice here and some broad opinions about the future of film and the possibilities of cheap filmmaking. But most importantly, it had me itching to get my hands on my camera and get filming.
