    The Weekend Report: October 30, 2011

    The Shrek spinoff Puss in Boots was initially expected to open north of $40 million but expectations were pared back to $35 million to $40 million as opening day loomed.

    Cincy Native Brandon Harris On Clooney’s Regional Filmmaking In Ides Of March

    “If this was the Boston of Ben Affleck’s Gone Baby Gone, there would be stories in the Eastern press about the film’s unforced authenticity, but instead these qualities will be largely missed by the cinerati.” Cincy Native Brandon Harris On Clooney’s Regional Filmmaking In Ides Of March

      “It’s a film festival’s job—and increasingly so—to create moments of recognition, of enjoyment, of shock, of learning. Not of consumerism. Not of implementing cultural policy. But moments without pretence, unclouded by vested interests, by intervention, by cynicism, by everyday business. Committed to nothing but the thing itself. Under obligation to nothing, to no one, not even to the filmmakers themselves. To basically seek access to a form that does not yet exist, a place no one has been to, a time that has not yet come. ’A form that thinks, and a thought that forms,’ as Jean-Luc Godard has it.”
      ~ Hans Hurch, late director of the Viennale

      “There’s a mass belief that if you’re texting, you’re somehow not interrupting the conversation—you’re not being rude. It’s an illusion of multitasking. I started filmmaking when people didn’t expect to have a phone on set, when it would’ve been seen as unprofessional to pull out a phone. Phones have become a huge distraction, and people work much better without them. At first it causes difficulty, but it really allows them to concentrate on what they’re doing. Everybody understands. I’ve had a lot of crews thank me. With a set, we’re trying to create a bubble of alternate reality.”
      ~ Christopher Nolan
