Dustin Guy Defa Does A Sweet Job Top-10ing Criterion

“When people ask me what my favorite movie is, Hoop Dreams is always a safe bet for me. It’s the one that I can say with confidence will always be in my top ten and won’t go away. It’s another movie about family, and it’s also a movie about aspirations, hard work, reality, and not having money. It’s just a beautiful, poignant movie.”

But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
