    this guy is a really good speaker …one of the best probably next to Charlize Theron.

    too bad he couldn’t make a 13 part series for pbs / bbc or hbo …cause that stuff goes on repeats and people will find it ..

    i remember Mike Moore doing sicko movie – trying to
    change the healthcare system. i’m not sure where that
    went .. people stopped talking about that.
    will people stop talking about this ?

    maybe he should have waited for tiff 2012 and
    got best documentary oscar nomination.

    the house i live in – not the greatest title – cause
    there’s a song with same title – plus it looks like a home improvement show plus youtube search suggests “the skin i live in” movie …

    would like to see another dp/30 where he talks about regular movies ….

    DP – you have to put more descriptions on the youtube channel so people can find it by keyword .

    “Latin American leaders have joined together to condemn the U.S. government for soaring drug violence in their countries, blaming the United States for the transnational cartels that have grown rich and powerful smuggling dope north and guns south.”

“I am just grateful I am still around. I would love to be Steven Soderbergh, but I am lucky to be Joe Swanberg. Actors want to work with me, people want to give me money, and my nightmare scenario remains: Getting in bed with a studio, spending years on a movie, and it turns out horrible, but now I’m rich.”

Actually, by Hollywood standards, you’re right, I said. That is unambitious.

“It is, and yet, if you can go to bed happy at night, doing what you want, isn’t that ambition for a lifetime?”
~ Swanberg On Swanberg By Borelli

“In retrospect, nothing of that kind surprised me about Philip, because his intuition was luminous from the instant you met him. So was his intelligence. A lot of actors act intelligent, but Philip was the real thing: a shining, artistic polymath with an intelligence that came at you like a pair of headlights and enveloped you from the moment he grabbed your hand, put a huge arm round your neck and shoved a cheek against yours; or if the mood took him, hugged you to him like a big, pudgy schoolboy, then stood and beamed at you while he took stock of the effect.”
