Q.204

His book "Making Movies" opens with an anecdote about Akira Kurosawa. He asked Kurosawa about a certain shot in "Ran" (an adaptation of "King Lear") and why it was framed so. Kurosawa replies that if he had moved the camera an inch to the left, a Sony factory would be included, and if he moved to the right, the airport would be seen. Both would be out of place in a period movie.

Which film director, known both for his grasp of technique and his understanding of actors, wrote this book?
