Centenário de Tennessee Williams

Top-dúzia do homem no cinema: Nota 1: This Property Is Condemned não é propriamente do Williams (inclusive ele pediu para tirar seu nome dos créditos), apenas o prólogo e epílogo o são. Nota 2: Minha peça favorita do Williams é The Glass Menagerie, não só porque é a mais belamente escrita mas por ser, eContinuar lendo “Centenário de Tennessee Williams”

Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff (2010)

Scorsese: Some ballet enthusiasts feel that it’s not the best shooting of ballet. The best shooting of ballet, to be literal about it, would be from head to toe, Fred Astaire had in his contract that you had to keep photographing him from head to toe. But they changed that completely. They paid no attention to that. They made a film about what goes on inside the dancer’s head. It’s how the dancer, he or she, sees themselves, while they’re dancing. So you get the spirit of the dance, you get the spirit of it, and I applied that later to the boxing scenes in “Raging Bull”. What they hear, what they see. What they hear and what they see, very important.

Top-dúzia: David Niven

The hardest thing in the world to do, for a director, is a comedy. If you do a drama, that doesn’t quite come off, you may still have a fairly good drama, but if a comedy does not come off, you’ve got a disaster. There’s no covering up with a comedy. They’re frightfully hard to write, very difficult to direct, and they’re not at all easy to act, as a matter of fact.
