Bright Star, director Jane Campion, actor Ben Whishaw (TIFF ’09)

The complete version of this interview got lost in the shuffle. Apologies. Never too late, I guess.

    I am just doing this to catch your attention DP because you need to address one thing:

    You need to either put up a link to an OSCAR STORY on the blog or you need to just have that story be here on the blog. Once you click on the Don Murphy jerk-a-thon, it takes you away from the Hot blog, and puts you into a completely different place that does not have a LINK TO THE HOT BLOG at the top of the page. That’s just goofy.

    Again, I get your reasoning behind having everything MCN related being tied into the Hot Blog and vice versa, but that’s hard to deal with when there’s no real easy way to access the place I want to go to in the first place… THE HOT BLOG!

    I know this is a new design, it’s being tweaked and what not, but there’s practical and impractical. What has happened to this blog is impractical by a country mile. Please, admin, work this out or I will continue to have to use back and forth to navigate between two articles that are on this blog but in actuality, one of them is not.

    Great, the edit button just stopped working. Fine, here’s a double-post. I now have found the HOT BLOG link in the 26 Weeks thread but why is it all the way at the end? Why do I get re-directed to another part of MCN? It’s just impractical. I get the reasoning still but that’s just… weird.

    I’ve been waiting a long time for the entire video. Thanks for posting!

    I’m heterosexual (well, mostly), but I do like older ladies — Ms Campion is hot!

  5. CampionFan says:

    Ha ha, well I’m not heterosexual and I also think she is hot…nice to know someone else feels the way I do about her! It’s nice to know others appreciate older women as well!

    When I try to watch this it says ‘video forbidden this video is private’. Is there something I need to do to watch it? Thank you :)

“Dude, I don’t like the way you talk, bro. How can you tell me that it’s going to be hard? Do you see a lot of people like you writing stories? Give me a break, bro. That’s your strength, that you’re not like us. Go out there and tell your stories. Don’t go out there and try to be like Quentin or me or anybody else. We need you. Tell me what makes you angry, why you’re arrogant, or fearful, whatever it is. Don’t hide anything. Be honest. What is that thing that bothers you and makes you distinct? Everyone’s looking for you. A Mexican point-of-view to tell a story right now? I’m telling you, everybody wants that right now. I desperately need you to tell your story in your way. You are essential.”
~ M. Night Shyamalan

“My films are always brought to life from an idea, a coincidence, or a dreamlike magic. An ephemeral moment that settles in my mind and starts to bloom. The plot slowly appears before my eyes, and there’s nothing left but to write it. I actually do use a mood board. And location scouting is essential to the realization of the film. I’m inspired by architecture — the beauty of certain neighborhoods, the mystery in odd buildings, or streets that suggest psychoanalytic theories. I only choose my actors after I write the script.”
~ Dario Argento
