I'm very overwhelmed, @Creasy47 ... it was beautiful-- in all of its darkness and comedy and violence-- it wraps up to be something so magical. Damn... That's our director for 25?...
Things happen for a reason.
Goody bye Boyle.
Who do we think from Cary's previous collaborators could get the job? I think there's a good chance we get someone new.
Cary did his own photography for Beats of no Nation. But I doubt Eon would let him.
It's Arkapaw, but it does sound awesome, doesn't it? Great name. But on that department, nothing beats Fukunaga. Cool names to see on the pretitles, right? ;)
I have yet to watch cary's other work I'm almost finished watching true detective season 1 and I really would love to see Adam Arkapaw be DOP the show has such a beautiful and surreal look to it!
It's the next day, and this show clings like a happy hang-over.
Today I'm thinking of the performances. In a show that's crammed wall to wall with brilliant characters and execution via the actors-- where does one begin??
Jonah Hill and Emma Stone-- is there nothing she can't do? I wasn't surprised by the more dramatic elements, but her comedic chops blew me away.
Or what about Sonoya Mizuno? What a quirky turn as Dr. Fujita.
Billy Magnussen? Whom I don't remember from The Big Short!
So happy to see the always mesmerizing Gabriel Byrne-- and damn, was he ever in this!
@Creasy47, I find my head still swirls from downing this mind-f*** in under 24 hours. What are your thoughts on the performances (as far as I can see, Fukunaga's work showcases so many of his talents (from visceral/masculine and non-compromising story-telling, that seems to always contrast with very heartfelt and emotional themes (the yin and yang of this man?), to beautiful visuals, and always, always, always GREAT PERFORMANCES)?...
@4EverBonded , his work SCREAMS talent. Just mind-blowing! I think tonight I will start to re-watch TD again. That should satiate me (for a couple of days!)...
At some point this week or maybe next weekend, I think I'm going to watch it again. I can't help myself.
And yes, Sally Fields... Uh... love how she greets her son after seven years!
“Maniac’s” madness would probably be less cohesive without the steady hand of Fukunaga, who helped ignite the current trend for auteur television by directing all eight episodes of “True Detective” in 2014. Working with “incredible focus and incredible tenacity,” Fukunaga was able to maintain “a level of tonal control for a show that’s very, very hard to get in TV,” said Somerville.
Fukunaga is eager to point out he wasn’t the first filmmaker to direct an entire series — he cites Tom Hooper’s “John Adams” and Krzysztof Kieślowski’s “The Decalogue” as earlier examples. But having endured the painful process of reducing “Jane Eyre” into a two-hour feature, he craves a larger canvas. “I love David Lean's films, and larger epics just don't have a place anymore in cinemas,” he said.
Wonderful article. Thanks for posting @4EverBonded ...
I'll pass on that, Craig is 21 years older than her.
She's an amazing talent @Goldeneye0094 , but yes, I think she's too young. Saying that, she's got a terrific action sequence in Maniac (shot wonderfully as well), so she wouldn't be uncomfortable in Bond-type action.
Yeah, I think he said it only took half-a-day to shoot.
I'd love to see a "oner" in B25-- an action sequence like the one in Maniac and TD (although not 6 minutes long!).
