    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….

“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
