  1. The only way it could possibly work is if due to being the only new film on release it plays in every screen, and it hits an Avatar like zeitgeist cos its the first new film in 6 months. But thats a long shot
  2. i'd be surprised if Netflix haven't offered $250m for the worldwide rights. They spent $100m on Bright, after all. That would be about the best outcome I can imagine for Warner Bros really as a theatrical release needs a huge push, full seats for 2 weeks and a big marketing budget, and then they have to give half the receipts to the theaters. I imagine Nolan has theatrical and Imax in his contract though and he can be the block. All speculation obvs...
  3. Yeah I remember now. Lots of funny and shocking moments so its a wild ride, but then afterwards it left a sour taste. Quite manipulative... "I hope you get raped!"
  4. Love this film. I was in a zoom Q&A with Mike Leigh the other day and I asked him if he was conscious of shooting London in a way that would make it iconic to him, in the same way As Fellini did with Rome or Scorcese with NYC. He just said "no". Lol
  5. And here we fucking go... This is the most exciting journey to happen to rllmuk in years.
  6. I am extremely fortunate in London in that there are ample films with live score events. I've even seen Terminator 2 with live score. I imagine Psycho was exceptional. But 2001 is transcendent. As I often quote in interviews, its not my favourite film, but its by far and away the best film ever made. I doubt Kurosawa or Tarkovsky would disagree.
  7. compared to JCM in Hedwig doing Midnight Radio.
  8. Have you tried watching any... films? Gyllenhaal is one of the most interesting compulsive American actors working today
  9. I watched 2001 on video 3 times and always proudly screamed about how overrated it is. Saw it at the national theatre with John Williams and an Orchestra doing the score live to the picture and realised immediately that it was the greatest cinematic achievement of all time except maybe Apocalypse Now. Cinema. For FUCK sake.
  10. Thats absolutely great! Congrats. There are some glaring trailer issues that are super quick to fix. PM me dude.
  11. 100% this. But also, it works most effectively on the big screen where you are trapped in the dark with no phone or distractions. Yes, the start is slow, but it sets a mood that takes the real world very far away from you. It's almost like a decompression. You need 10 minutes of real world deprogramming to get you into the right space to begin the story. Watching Exorcist in a cinema with an audience trapped is an unreal experience. I remember the first time I did this, in about 1995. When it was still banned outside Westminster and you had to go to the Trocadero in London to see it. There were two 17 year old girls in front of us watching. During the first jump scares they laughed, giggled, joked and had fun. When her head spun they left. It was genuinely too much. I'll never forget that. I doubt it would happen now, we are all so much more desensitised and distracted these days. But i'll never forget that visceral response where these kids thought they were gonna have fun and the film, 30 years after its original release was still simply too much.
  12. Brick is notoriously difficult for dialogue. The director even has gone on record to state that very important lines are lost in the low budget independent mix. I saw it in the cinema and it wasn't until a few viewings later that I caught some things. The films exclusive dialect definitely makes it harder. Its by far and away his best film though so I hope you do double dip.
  13. This is a sinister sadistic moment in a ruthless horror film.
  14. It really is something incredible. I've been to see a lot of theatre and always kinda considered it a poor mans films, and a relic of a bygone era that we were still paying lip service to. But this is genuinely utterly fucking amazing.
  15. Fleabag is still absolutely fucking incredible. It just feels so... basic in comparison to this. Who knew there were TWO talented women!
  16. Hardly throwing away his shot when he's written the best stage show in 10 years. But I do get it, and he's certainly earned it. Finished this today and its fucking amazing
  17. Lol, tonally all over the place is the reason its the earth shatteringly progressive masterpiece it is you wally. Its kind of the entire point.
  18. My last film I produced, Peripheral is finally coming to Amazon and ITunes on August 3rd. It's a sort of Cronenberg/Black Mirror crossover about tech vs art vs commerce and it's sort of about how hard it is to make anything original in a capitalist society. In all honesty it's a bit of a noble failure. It's a little too slow and light on scares, but it has a cracking third act and I think it says something about the way society is headed. Would love people to check it out. Here's an interview with the Director https://www.starburstmagazine.com/features/paul-hyett-peripheral
  19. Sort of a mix of Sons of Anarchy, Open Range and Succession. It's about a family of cattle rangers in Montana and their fights with encroaching property developers, local native Americans and each other. Costner is the Patriarch trying to hang on to the old ways and his kids are the usual bunch of aspirational challengers, rebellious troublemakers and corrupt backstabbers. Only watched the pilot so far but it seems pretty tight. Gorgeous to look at, refreshingly different setting and Costner is always great value. Definitely looks like it's following a pretty tried and tested formula (Large crime family tears itself apart while fighting enemies from all angles), but the pilot was riveting enough.
  20. interview with the director of Peripheral in starburst. Very kindly namechecked me. Not often a director name checks the producer. https://www.starburstmagazine.com/features/paul-hyett-peripheral
