My prediction - Jack O’Connell. Take a knee, he is the future. Also my favorite movie of this year.

If at the end of a war story you feel uplifted, or if you feel that some small bit of rectitude has been salvaged from the larger waste, then you have been made the victim of a very old and terrible lie. - Tim O’Brien, The Things They Carried (via nevver)

I guess part of this story stems from witnessing how, with some of the increasing vagueness in job definitions, people have come to rely on storytelling or the idea of creating narratives as a catchall. My dentist is a storyteller, weaving a narrative from my bloody gums. My accountant uses numbers to tell a story about my debts and the threat of ruin. Sadly, my barber doesn’t say squat. I’d welcome a story from him. - Sam Lipsyte discusses his story in this week’s issue, and the idea that everyone is a storyteller: http://nyr.kr/1lq9tM9 (via newyorker)

Kill Your Darlings opens in NY / LA. Go see it - a real NYC Killer Films production. Daniel Radcliffe and Dane Dehaan are great.

"When I saw ‘Pacific Rim,’ I said, ‘Man, I’ve been three-and-a-half years now doing ‘Gravity,’ and now you’re making me feel that I just did this tiny, tiny indie Sundance film.’

But what I love about ‘Pacific Rim’ is it’s done without any post-modernist, ironic approach. He really loves his characters. He loves his monsters. And at the core of it, what he loves is the characters inside the robots.” - Cuaron on Del Toro

“It’s mind-boggling, the movie […] I think it is one of the most beautifully designed, elegant, powerful, sci-fi movies. It has certainly taken what he created in ‘Children of Men’ and pushed it even more.

I can go back to almost 30 years ago, more than 30 years ago, when we met, and we have the exact same relationship. When I see his work, I want to be a better filmmaker, I want to push myself.” - Del Toro on Cuaron

Nasty Baby wraps principal photography. Then we partied like wild soul music mammals. How can we thank all the cast and crew who made this film possible. By creating a movie worth watching. No apocalyptical steel zombies. No remakes of cereal box cartoons. Instead - we have character, dilemma, authenticity, friendship, proximity, unease and risk. Ok, back to work.

Nasty Baby crew. Minka Farthing-Kohl (1st AC) looking legit for the road trip to Ohio. Driving shots suck time like a jeep sucks gasoline.
