And Mazursky is in The Other Side Of The Wind. He plays himself.
The cast is all over the place—literally, as Welles would shoot angles of the same scene in different countries, sometimes years apart. But Norman Foster is very good.
Rivette is actually not a bad point of comparison for Part One.
He’s the voice of the puppet, so he’s all over it, though he only shows up as Stine toward the end.
Not sure if that’s a joke, considering that’s the era when Jackson Browne was all over the radio and selling millions of albums.
Actually, because they don’t have any bones or internal gasses, sharks aren’t really affected by decompression. The big but here is that they don’t really go in the deep, deep sea.
There’s no algorithm.
Nah, that’s all Katie.
Digital grading, color timing, processing, etc. don’t count as special effects. Here’s the thing: O Brother is a milestone for doing the work digitally. What I think most folks don’t realize is that color, contrast, saturation, etc. have always been manipulated. It’s been that way since the silent era. Consider this:…
Not all of them. They also had access to a real B-25; when you see it flying through smoke, it’s actually an oil fire in Oakland that the crew scrambled to get on film. There’s some newsreel footage in there as well.
Which does not follow under the purview of special effects.
Yeah. They had 10 years to figure it out and somehow decided it was a good idea to have him sing “S.O.S.” again, but in a mumblier, quieter voice.
Kinda blows my mind that they’d recycle material instead of, like, using “If It Wasn’t For The Nights,” “As Good As New,” or any of a million other options, given that most ABBA songs are already written like musical numbers.
Every Kraftwerk album from Ralf Und Florian on hit the Billboard chart. Autobahn even managed to peak at No. 5.
Neither Damon nor Reiner are in the film.
I went into some detail above. But yes, this isn’t much of an issue with a suburban school district, where a small number of school means they’re more alike than not. You are designated a school based on your address, but if you could get your kids into a public school that’s demonstrably better for one reason or…
Addendum: Basically, a city with hundreds of public schools will have a huge difference between the worst, the average, and the best. (NYC’s case is more extreme, with 1,800 public schools in a single system.)
It’s specifically a public school phenomenon and pretty much the opposite of an upper-crust thing. NYC’s is just more cartoonishly vicious than other major cities. But, for ex., I live in Chicago and, starting next year, my kids (who are only 2 years apart) will be in different public schools in different…
He goes into the aspect ratio thing re: Barry Lyndon in the doc. This has been discussed ad nauseam since the release, but Vitali is right. (Here, all one has to do is look to the Taschen book on Kubrick, where everything was approved by Jan Harlan, who doesn’t appear to be on speaking terms with Vitali; it’s pretty…
Ha! Man, The Unspeakable Act. Sallitt’s a huge Rudolph fan, by the way. Can’t wait for his new one.
