"[Medium-sized movies] are too risky. If you look at movies like… I guess, All the President’s Men was important enough and based on a big enough transgression. But take a movie like Klute – I don’t think that movie would be made today. I mean, The Godfather would have a hard time being made today. Even if you could put up the $75 million it would take to make that movie today, and you could guarantee that it would be one of the greatest movies of all time, people would still go, “$75 million? I dunno man, that’s a lot of bread…” There are realities to our business. The bottom has fallen out. Dramas that cost more than $20 million, you’re taking a big risk. I think Soderbergh was right. And it’s sad. I think the thing is to make movies cheaper. People are migrating to television to find characters that aren’t spandex-clad superheroes."

— David Fincher, in response to the question Did you see Soderbergh’s speech in San Francisco? He was lamenting the death of medium-sized movies. (via howtocatchamonster)


"He was too old for me, he’d had three wives, he drank, he was an actor and he was goyim," Bacall wrote in her autobiography of her prime passion.  All that meant nothing to the slinky 19-year-old model who met the 44-year-old star while filming To Have and Have Not.  They wed in 1945 (Bogie coolly muttered "hello, baby" at the end of the ceremony), and the two embarked on several delirious years running late with the Hollywood Rat Pack, saving time for two children.  "Bogie and I were ridiculous, holding hands like teenagers….we mooned and swooned, we really loved," Bacall has said.  The honeymoon ended in January 1957 when Bogart died of cancer.  Wrote Bacall: "No one has written a romance better than we lived it."  —People magazine

So many good news today ! 

My school offers us 5 options for our final year, which one of them is Production. So I’m working during this year in a production partnership with my best friend ! And the guys we’re going to work with, are the most promising creatives and technicians of our class. And they wanted us both as producers. I am so glad ! And flattered …

Tonight, “Opening Night” in theaters with my best friend.
