Thank you so much, it was a lengthy Q&A he did prior to the film, and I took the best notes I could and tried to get this up quickly and accurately to the event and what he said. The Russo Brothers question was a great one, it was about the lenses, stabilizer and other gear he used associated with the iPhone on High Flying Bird. I very much WISH I had gotten it all down but he rapid fired the answer and I wouldn't want to misrepresent that information, and I know our readers are very aware and interested in such things so it would be bad to get it even a little wrong. I wish I had the answer.
Thanks for pointing these out. We wanted to get this one up quickly, and we didn't copy edit it properly. I appreciate your candor and your input. I take this to heart, and respect the place it is coming from. Thank you for being a good reader, and being honest in your feedback.
The Scorsese Must See Movie Viewing Challenge!
This is a great idea. We do update articles like this, and I think it would be worth revisiting this one to include that. It would take time to find one quote for each film, but certainly, we could find quotes for many of them. Thanks for the idea.
I will continue to say that the movies I think are bad are bad. It's good for artists to get honest feedback, we can be supportive of all efforts without hedging our language and avoiding saying what we think.
I think it's belittling to those behind the camera on countless projects each year to suggest that validation in this craft only comes through televised awards shows.
