    The white balance is set to daylight…

  2. Lovely stuff. What a beautiful voice Carey Mulligan has.

  3. eugenen says:

    The biggest thing I walked away from Telluride with this year is how ridiculously talented these two are. NLMG could have been six hours long for all I care. I could watch them on screen together all day.

  4. J says:

    I love that she’s so eager to talk about the work (and I love her) but I hate that she just spoiled the end of both the book and the movie for me when I’ve still got eighty pages to go.

    Any way we can get a courtesy SPOILER WARNING on something about a film which hasn’t yet opened?

  5. Emmy says:

    Awesome interview. Carey and Andrew were so funny in the end of the video. Good job David, i enjoyed the interview A LOT.

  6. Emmy says:

    btw can you fix the embed code?

  7. Tofu says:

    Ever notice how some actors are suddenly cast in one billion movies all at once without any audience following yet?

    The meeting of these two is like some casting agency supernova.

  8. IOv3 says:

    Exactly. Few could pick these two out of a crowd and that they are in movie after movie, is just weird.

  9. LexG says:

    YEP YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP.

    LOOK AT HER.

    But SHOES ON SOFA ALERT. It’s forgivable because it’s CAREY POWER, who could put her feet ALL over my pillows, but women ALWAYS DO THIS, putting their shoes all over everywhere and everything, because they have no concept that they’re walking around city streets where disgusting people spit all over the place and that shoes are carrying untold germs… and yet they’re roll right in and sit down on a bed upside down with shoes on the pillows, like COME ON.

    On a side note, ALL MEN’S SHOES have urine on them at ALL TIMES because men’s room floors are the most disgusting thing ever.

  10. Josh_A says:

    At what points in the video do the spoilers start and end? I want to watch, but I don’t want to be spoiled.

  11. Dan R says:

    Why is he Spider-man? He should be Plastic Man! Look at that neck!

  12. David Poland says:

    Only if you can tell me what’s wrong with it…

  13. David Poland says:

    My apologies, J… I was literally running out of the house to go to the airport when I posted these…

    And Josh_A… it depends what degree of spoiler you are concerned about. Some people consider the conceit of the film to be a spoiler… and I might be one of those..

    Okies, looks like XHTML 1.0 with the p-tag disabled. Bum.

  15. Emmy says:

    when i try to post it on my blog it wont work. :[ It says “video not available. I will credit you for the video, dont worry.

  16. Josh_A says:

    I already know the premise, I meant the spoiler that J says she gives away, the ending of the book/movie.

  17. jtagliere says:

    Love this interview – I just love hearing young actors who are smart about their choices and quite clearly about life around them.

    Every time I see Andrew Garfield, I keep thinking its Mark Boal (sans beard, obviously).

  18. Triple Option says:

    Speaking of spoilers ** One Coming ** There were SPOILERS in the freckin’ trailer!! I hate, Hate, HATE THAT! ** I am so glad I hadn’t seen the trailer before seeing the movie. I went online to see what was sorta revealed in the marketing because I wanted to tell some people about it but didn’t want to give away anything more than absolutely necessary but there are pieces in the trailer I saw that not only come way late and in a climatic moment but do very little to piqué curiosity of the film. **END Spoilers**

    I wish there was some way to stop this process.

  19. Arbeit says:

    Ich habe immer gern ein über solche Dinge zu lesen, ist mein Blog in Verbindung, wenn Sie einen Blick ringsum wenden Sie sich wünschen. Ich habe Ihnen meinen Favoriten hinzugefügt.

  20. Lanie says:

    I love how intelligent these two are, and how genuinely invested they feel in their work. It’s refreshing to see these young actors who take so much love in their art and don’t care for the fame that comes with it!

  21. Etguild2 says:

    Hooo man, internet bots are getting dumber.

  22. First of all without a doubt that Conflict of Clans is one of the
    most popular and great Android sport which is presently trending in the market.

“The core fear is what can happen to you, personally. Your body. That’s what horror films deal with, precisely. We are a very thin skin wrapped around a pumping heart and guts. At any given moment it can come down to that, be it diseases, or somebody’s assault, or war, or a car wreck. You could be reduced to the simple laws of physics and your body’s vulnerability. The edged weapon is the penultimate weapon to disclose that reality to you.”
~ Wes Craven, 1996, promoting Scream

MAMET
Well, that, to me, is always the trick of dramaturgy; theoretically, perfectly, what one wants to do is put the protagonist and the audience in exactly the same position. The main question in drama, the way I was taught, is always what does the protagonist want. That’s what drama is. It comes down to that. It’s not about theme, it’s not about ideas, it’s not about setting, but what the protagonist wants. What gives rise to the drama, what is the precipitating event, and how, at the end of the play, do we see that event culminated? Do we see the protagonist’s wishes fulfilled or absolutely frustrated? That’s the structure of drama. You break it down into three acts.

INTERVIEWER
Does this explain why your plays have so little exposition?

MAMET
Yes. People only speak to get something. If I say, Let me tell you a few things about myself, already your defenses go up; you go, Look, I wonder what he wants from me, because no one ever speaks except to obtain an objective. That’s the only reason anyone ever opens their mouth, onstage or offstage. They may use a language that seems revealing, but if so, it’s just coincidence, because what they’re trying to do is accomplish an objective… The question is where does the dramatist have to lead you? Answer: the place where he or she thinks the audience needs to be led. But what does the character think? Does the character need to convey that information? If the answer is no, then you’d better cut it out, because you aren’t putting the audience in the same position with the protagonist. You’re saying, in effect, Let’s stop the play. That’s what the narration is doing—stopping the play… It’s action, as Aristotle said. That’s all that it is—exactly what the person does. It’s not what they “think,” because we don’t know what they think. It’s not what they say. It’s what they do, what they’re physically trying to accomplish on the stage. Which is exactly the same way we understand a person’s character in life—not by what they say, but by what they do. Say someone came up to you and said, I’m glad to be your neighbor because I’m a very honest man. That’s my character. I’m honest, I like to do things, I’m forthright, I like to be clear about everything, I like to be concise. Well, you really don’t know anything about that guy’s character. Or the person is onstage, and the playwright has him or her make those same claims in several subtle or not-so-subtle ways, the audience will say, Oh yes, I understand their character now; now I understand that they are a character. But in fact you don’t understand anything. You just understand that they’re jabbering to try to convince you of something.
~ David Mamet
