Fascinating 150-page book about how Hollywood makes movies, embedded in tedious 500-page junkie memoir. Needed a dramatis personae or index by first name to keep all the various showbiz assholes straight. Most of them seem like dopes. The best lines come from her family, whom she dislikes.

Movie producer Philips, now deceased, had her ups and downs with the Hollywood community before and after her stint as producer of Close Encounters. I don't think Julia and I would have ever been friends, but she's certainly a compelling character. Quick-paced, lots of profanity but very readable. ( )
