The pundits running Hollywood have gone from 'entertainment experts' to nothing more than 'pandering pussies!' They are telling me that I should make a movie that appeals to the communist ethic? Bullshit! If the Chinese don't like what we have to say in our films, fuck 'em and the red horse they rode in on.
One would think that they would be more interested in the story than the way it was filmed (recorded.)
Where in hell, does his company get off telling an artist what tools he/she can use.
The line in this article..."it’s evident that Netflix not only wants the highest possible quality for its productions but also wants its filmmakers to be unburdened by the limitations of certain camera systems."...is pure crap.
God forbid that you try to tell a story in Black and White because it doesn't meet their "standards."
It's my guess that if Spielberg, Cameron, or Scorsese told a compelling story and shot it in Super 16mm with vintage lenses, they would change their tune.
Stream this, pal!
Well, it just goes to show you how lame and lazy the audiences for these Marvel flicks are. For God's sake..."Don't ask met to think about the characters and the story, just blast me with your special effects. My short attention span can't handle more than that!" Unfortunately, Hollywood does what it does best...pander to the uneducated masses while it keeps churning out mindless drivel. I'm with you, Ridley. Thanks for having the balls to tell it like it is.
Roger Deakins is not only a brilliant cinematographer, but a man who has the sensibility to collaborate with his peers. It takes two (or more) to tango!
Wow...as a 'filmmaker', try opening up a stop or two so we can see your shining face. Your narrative looks like it was shot in a closet. Regarding DePalma's $80k shot...indulgence is the name of the Hollywood game. Always was and always will be.
