Creating a world is great for mood and tone but characters are the sole reason why we're watching a story. Give us a glimpse of their deep flaws and we'll stick around to see how they come out of them. Thanks, Jason. Great simple article.
We should all strive to be as meticulous as Kubrick was with his work. It is that attention to detail that pays off in the end.
It is one of my all-time favorites because it has such a strong mood, tone, and all-around performances. Best use of voice-over I have ever heard, always bringing it up to friends who want to use VO in their films. Field's best film to date.
Your persistence of vision seems to have paid off. Would love to see the outcome. Requesting a badge.
After this announcement, the Oscars should finally be put to rest. Everything gets corrupted with time, it's human nature. We should all vote to pick a new name, perhaps the Alfreds (see article's comment about Hitchcock) and start a new venue that celebrates the work behind the art of storytelling. This new event should be made by filmmakers for filmmakers, not a comedy show nor a fashion show. Sorry Oscar but it's time to pass on the baton, you've been running too long and certainly in the wrong direction.
