I'm a huge fan of these guys as most of us who are obsessed with movies are. I really love looking at their films for inspiration and then going and looking at their influences for further inspiration. Great article. I own Blood Simple and haven't watched it in a bout a year. I might put it no tonight!
The last sentence though! Ouch!!!
This interview really makes me want to see this film. Shults dropping Cassevetes and PTA as inspirations really piqued my interest. Also sounds awesome that tonally it sounds he's almost going for a horror vibe in a family drama. Sounds weird and awesome. Inspiring stuff. Can't wait to see the film.
I liked sold. But I REALLY liked The Disgustings. There are so many lines in there that made me lol. I think I really like characters who are bad or do bad things. I really liked when the girl says "Well, nothing physical" and they're like "So, nothing." LOL!!! And I think the lonely moments near the end and the one character saying his father never calls him, make them likable enough. Jordan has a great voice and perspective. Best of luck to him!
Great video for a great movie. Thanks for sharing!
Very cool. Thanks for this post. It may seem to some that the New Wave is a well too often visited, but for me (and obviously many filmmakers we all admire) it's a source of constant inspiration, which is just nothing short of astounding considering it's a movement that happened over 55 years ago!
