    I like the Spurlock style docs. Would love to see him take on the health-care industry. I know Moore’s done it, but Spurlock wouldn’t try to paint Cuba as some medicinal utopia.

    Spurlocks movie is BRILLIANT. I could kind of cared less about the info regarding product placement, but watching him rake in cash for his movie was incredibly entertaining and inspiring. Go see this film. Also, POM made out like bandits on this. I saw the film at a recent festival and everyone was calling it “POM wonderful.”

    Spurlock gets a bum rap – SuperSize Me is one of the most entertaining documentaries in recent years. Was just watching Exit Through the Gift Shop, last night – movie kicks major ass, just watching Banksy do his shtick in silhouette. Who say’s doc’s always have to be so serious and life-affirming??? I’m seeing this tonight and expecting a pure lark – looking forward to it….

“What Quibi trying to do is get to the next generation of film narrative. The first generation was movies, and they were principally two-hour stories that were designed to be watched in a single sitting in a movie theater [ED: After formats like the nickelodeon]. The next generation of film narrative was television, principally designed to be watched in one-hour chapters in front of a television set. I believe the third generation of film narrative will be a merging of those two ideas, which is to tell two-hour stories in chapters that are seven to ten minutes in length. We are actually doing long-form in bite-size.”

“The important thing is: what makes the audience interested in it? Of course, I don’t take on any roles that don’t interest me, or where I can’t find anything for myself in it. But I don’t like talking about that. If you go into a restaurant and you have been served an exquisite meal, you don’t need to know how the chef felt, or when he chose the vegetables on the market. I always feel a little like I would pull the rug out from under myself if I were to I speak about the background of my work. My explanations would come into conflict with the reason a movie is made in the first place — for the experience of the audience — and that, I would not want.
