This is a load of absurd, post-moralizing BS.
"Being thrown into a sex scene without consent.." you are saying these actresses were raped?
They joined the show, knowing full well how much sex there was on the show, AND it was all in their contracts, AND in the scripts.
Nobody did anything without consent, period. Now they're famous actresses, in part from having been in these scenes, and they want to pretend to be victims. PLEEEEASE..
Sorry, but the "Poor victim" statement from Sharon Stone was B.S. She knew how filming works. If they ask you to take off your panties, and they're aiming a 1K light at knee level, AND the camera is also at that level, there's no mistaking what's going on.
Also, later on, she claimed it was actually her idea to do the crotch shot (which is also B.S.)
Nolan: "it’s pretty remarkable.” It may be remarkable, but if I have no freakin' idea what your characters are saying, I don't know what the movie is about. I went from absolutely loving his work, to pretty much not being interested in watching his stuff anymore. Supremely annoying, is how I'd describe it.
It happened to me, and it was blatant. An entertainment attorney was trying to line up meetings for me with CAA, WGA & a couple of mid-level agencies, and ran into this. He said one agent said "I'm not interested because of his age. If he hasn't made it by now, then he must not be any good." I had won 52 festival screenwriting awards at that point, 13 first place for my latest screenplay. It didn't matter. (I've won 146 writing awards now, and I'm still running into this.)
1. His movies do not make much money. His appeal is to a small, niche audience.
2. He's a pain in the ass to work with. That 'angry guy who takes no sh*t from anyone" does not bid well when you're trying to convince an investor to back your movie, rather than invest in some other business with an infinitely greater chance of ROI.
"Commitment to the film medium" is not a business statement. It does not equal bringing in a lot of audience.
