    This is one of the best DP 30′s ever. This guy is awesome on so many levels. Hope he finally wins his Oscar as he’s tragically over-due. So curious about Pain & Gain…

    David, as always, your DP30′s with post folks (especially sound) are smart and really informative. Great questions! Greg seemed genuinely happy to talk about his craft.

  3. Love Greg. Really think this might be his year.

    Everyone on goldderby reckons it’ll be Les Mis. Hope they’re wrong.

A statement from David Chase’s representative, Leslee Dart:

A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying,“ Tony Soprano is not dead,” is inaccurate. There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true. As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, “Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point.” To continue to search for this answer is fruitless. The final scene of THE SOPRANOS raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer.

“By the time the sounds of the Von Trapp children warbling ‘Silent Night’ drift through The Giver, you may find yourself wondering what fresh movie hell this is. In truth, the enervating hash of dystopian dread, vague religiosity and commercial advertising-style uplift is nothing if not stale. Adapted from Lois Lowry’s book for young readers, the story involves an isolated society that, with its cubistic dwellings, mindless smiles, monochromatic environs and nebulous communitarianism, seem modeled on a Scandinavian country or an old Mentos commercial.”
