One of my favorite books ever written about filmmaking is "Rebel Without a Crew" by Robert Rodriguez. There are mountains of information in that book, particularly about the Sundance experience (from the very golden age of Sundance), independent filmmaking, studio filmmaking, and everything in between. For history, culture, and process, I think it serves well.
