"Let's fix it later in post" are the first words that came to my mind watching the first minutes of this video. And they are the words I hate the most.
I want to know the secret of how a mediocre movie like Gravity won an Oscar.
You're jealous because he has a more uncommon name than yours.
He also "copied" tens of italian movies. Actually, more italian movies than Hong Kong movies. In his films you can find ideas, concepts, or even whole scenes "copied" from italian cinema. This doesn't subtract a thing from his GENIUS. Since the dawn of time, in any art form, artists did that. if you get inspiration from another artist's work but you manage to renew the whole thing and make it yours, it's not a "copy". It is a copy when it's done by someone with no talent and not enough creative thrust.
Aronofsky, Aronofsky, Aronofsky... I think we should at least *mention* the name of Matthew Libatique, who is the DP in all this films and, well, the guy who actually created the visuals we are appreciating in this essay. Just saying.
I want this nao. Too bad some people on the comments of the video saddened me saying nonsense like "they are ripping off Richard Linklater". Holy mother of God.
