    On Advertising - David Oglivy
    Bring Down the House - Ben Mezrich (Just finish reading)

    this book is about how kids from MIT use maths to beat the casino in Vegas. made a shitload of money and makes an interesting read. sad thing is that their techniques no longer work

    Yup! Not only Antonioni, but also Fellini.

    They tell stories in ways completely different from Holywood.

    fellini and antonioni were both auteurs in their own right, whereas the main priority in hollywood is to sell a story rather than telling it. i take it you meant different from the mainstream hollywood at the time, as even greats like antonioni and orson welles were tied to hollywood studios at some point of time in their careers.

    it was completely legal. the casinos could not do anything to them. after a while they got found out, and the casinos did the only thing they could. bar them from entering their premises.

    but it will make a good movie I'm sure.

    bar them? on what premises - cheating?

    anyway, thanks for sharing, sounds like the ideal book to read on a dull rainy day.

    to cure the symptom, you must find out the cause!
