SPC Buys West Memphis 3 Doc

Just a note, for those keeping score… the deal was done BEFORE Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory didn’t win the Oscar on Sunday.

This film is looking for a theatrical audience and an ongoing conversation about the seemingly unfair deal that finally got the three out of jail. Sony Classics will give the film that chance… and then, in time, it will end up on Starz. I wonder where it will stream at that point…

    …to crickets and tumbleweeds on Starzplay. Where all of the Starz content has been available for years but they had to go to Netflix to monetize it.

“The eye solicited alone makes the ear impatient, the ear solicited alone makes the eye impatient. Use these impatiences. Power of the cinematographer who appeals to the two senses in a governable way. Against the tactics of speed, of noise, set tactics of slowness, of silence.”
Robert Bresson

“I used to always think that was something low-budget films could use more of — a sense of geography — and now I even think it’s big-budget movies. So often when I see a movie, I don’t know where I am and I can’t quite follow — because the pacing is always so quick, and it’s a lot of long lenses and constantly editing where you’re changing the shot. There’s something refreshing for me about looking down the street and seeing a character and panning all the way over and seeing the other character and go, okay, I know where everybody is. Now when I cut to the other character, I wonder what the other person is doing because I know where he is. I know he’s around the corner because they just showed me that, and it creates not only a sense of geography logically in the movie, but it makes the movie larger than the screen. It makes you think about it and it creates suspense. We used to be really good about that, but [with] the ADD-ness of people now, we’re always moving the plot along so fast, you don’t get a sense of where you are and where everybody is and that’s doing a disservice to movies.”
