The text of the story makes it seem like she had contacts.
They aren’t cultural events. They don’t always have an impact. The Master and Inherent Vice have already totally faded into obscurity. The Master was barely watchable and Inherent Vice was an exercise in punishing the audience with boredom. Like Tarantino, he seems content with making his movies only for himself and he’s become totally insulated from self reflection. Maybe he could return to form but he honest about his track record.
Soderbergh is actually a terrible director and most of his movies are basically unwatchable. His ability to direct lots of movies comes from the fact that he attained the high status of being perceived as a genius with Sex, Lies early in his career then lucked out by winning best director for using color grading to show different locations in Traffic. If you go back and actually watch Traffic it’s close to being entirely unwatchable. Now he’s skated by on those two things combined with the fact that he’s friends with George Clooney and makes movies very cheaply but that are also extremely low quality. He is without question one of the most generally overrated directors since the 90s.
Wouldn't the set of frames that see the tracking markers be spatially different than the frames that don't see the markers? So, I'm assuming the applications for this would only be for pretty slow camera movements, like the one in the demo video.
Huh? People have been writing the instruction manual for hundreds of years. If you don’t have a baseline or point of reference for what’s already been done then you’ll always be duped by people who say their vision is unique. Everything he’s saying has been said before a million times. Go watch a Cassavetes movie. Go watch a reality TV show. The impressionist painters in the 1800’s were trying to break out of painting in the studio and capture “real life.” Come back and tell me if this guy is the first to think of “reality cinema.”
One of the more clearly pretentious interviewees I’ve seen in a while. This is the stuff that everyone says after their first year of film school. Nothing new here. Can’t wait to see this movie and confirm that it’s a complete mess and doesn’t approach the level of “realism” he’s claiming to have achieved.
