No- and Micro-budget producer of one feature, two shorts. Recently directed my first short. 30+ years of public and governmental accounting.
LOL - I was going to say, "Go back to watching F9 then"... but I saw your comment about that. "They need to stop blocking young and new fresh creatives from keeping the love of cinema going."... and you don't think this qualifies, huh? It was cinematic, gorgeous, and made for movie lovers that enjoy thinking and want a little depth to their stories.
Then again, given your political statements in other comments, what else could I expect?
How about a double feature for all those that haven't seen them (like myself)? Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is showing both "Night Moves" and "Cutter's Way" on Friday 7/23 starting at 7:00 pm Pacific. The night even starts off with "Blood Simple" at 5:00 pm.
So the article title should read, "Quentin Tarantino Can Imagine Robert Rodriguez Might Want To Do a 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' Spinoff, When He Sends Him the Book"! I love how some of you writers oversell your articles.
The show was great, one of the best of the year because of all the things mentioned above, BUT...
9. Plot Holes - Make sure your ending doesn't hinge on something that directly contradicts what has already been established, especially within the same episode! Don't have a character imply (since the old man didn't actually say it) something had been missing for at least a few days, and then tell the audience that something was actually only missing for a couple of hours. (The old man did not know it was missing from 11 pm to 1 am, and if he did, that's what he should've said!) Instead, this could have been fixed very easily by having the old man know two of the items that the something used were missing... real easy fix that doesn't blow up the ending.
For a budget of $2,500, that looked really good. I wish you much success!
Again, it's amazing how some of the "tech" articles generate a ton of comments, yet thoughtful interviews like this don't... just like the other recent filmmaker interviews. For me, this sounds incredibly interesting, and I'll definitely have to track it down.
