    Initially, when I saw ‘Carter’ and ‘Burwell’ I put them together as Carter Burwell. But that wouldn’t have made sense, since this is Spielberg not the Coens.

    I wondered the same thing and at first I thought, well, it must be a last name-comma-first name trick, but that didn’t make sense either.

    On a side note, some of the worst movie music of 2011 was inexplicably Carter Burwell’s score for Breaking Dawn Pt. I. I literally believed it had to be some feminine hygiene commercial composing hack also named Carter Burwell in one of those Paul Anderson/Paul Thomas Anderson/Paul W.S. Anderson situations. I’m not quite ready to stop believing this either.

    A pleasure as always, thank you David.

“I didn’t see anything this year. I’ve been making this movie for so long. I loved Kingsman. I really liked It Follows. It was the best premise I’ve seen in a horror film in a long, long, long time. It’s one of those movies that’s so good you get mad at it for not being great. He could have kept his mythology straight. He broke his mythology left, right, and center… Noah Baumbach. There’s a Paul Mazursky quality to his films. I haven’t seen all the Duplass brothers movies, but the ones I’ve seen I really liked. All that mumblecore stuff happened when I was in Germany doing Inglourious Basterds, so I didn’t even know about it. Then I came home and started reading about it, like,What the fuck is this shit? So I watched Baghead. I said to my friend Elvis Mitchell, “Have you seen any of those mumblecore movies? I was curious and watched Baghead, and I thought it was really good.” He goes, “You saw the good one. They’re not all like that. You reached into a pickle barrel and grabbed the right pickle.” I haven’t seen Hannah Takes the Stairs.”

“You kind of keep your tools sharp by working all the time. We are professionals. You can’t wait for inspiration. I try to do it every day. When something good comes, you have to be prepared to polish it, carve it and chisel it, that’s the work. But the actual intention, what you are really going to be writing about, that’s going to come up from a really authentic place that is deep and over which you exercise no conscious control.”
