Yeah it’s super funny that the agencies are saying any writer who looks for work without an agent is breaking the law as though they hold a monopoly on bestowing work. Ridiculous https://t.co/PsvS7FppX2 — jack allison (@jackallisonLOL) April 20, 2019

All Parts: A Review of Alex Ross Perry’s HER SMELL

Warren

The Warrens were, at best, frauds spinning out mostly fabricated ghost stories. At worst they were manipulative con artists who exploited the people they worked with, drummed up Satanic panic fears, and were hypocritical moral scolds profiting of other people's pain. https://t.co/3wNdCEcw7j — Post-Culture Review (@PostCultRev) April 19, 2019

Quote Unquotesee all »

“Dude, I don’t like the way you talk, bro. How can you tell me that it’s going to be hard? Do you see a lot of people like you writing stories? Give me a break, bro. That’s your strength, that you’re not like us. Go out there and tell your stories. Don’t go out there and try to be like Quentin or me or anybody else. We need you. Tell me what makes you angry, why you’re arrogant, or fearful, whatever it is. Don’t hide anything. Be honest. What is that thing that bothers you and makes you distinct? Everyone’s looking for you. A Mexican point-of-view to tell a story right now? I’m telling you, everybody wants that right now. I desperately need you to tell your story in your way. You are essential.”
~ M. Night Shyamalan

“My films are always brought to life from an idea, a coincidence, or a dreamlike magic. An ephemeral moment that settles in my mind and starts to bloom. The plot slowly appears before my eyes, and there’s nothing left but to write it. I actually do use a mood board. And location scouting is essential to the realization of the film. I’m inspired by architecture — the beauty of certain neighborhoods, the mystery in odd buildings, or streets that suggest psychoanalytic theories. I only choose my actors after I write the script.”
~ Dario Argento
