But you certainly don't have perspective. And there's so much pressure going into that opening night because you know there's journalists, tons of acquisitions people, and the fate of your film in some ways, if not decided, is really affected by how it screens that night.More James Ponsoldt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Blade Runner's just a noir at the end of the day. Rosemary's Baby is about the fear of having a child and how that gets in the way of a romantic relationship. Or whatever it is, and you add that extra element that blows your mind apart.More James Ponsoldt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
With Rodham, for instance, it has to work on an emotional level. It has to work on a character level. If it's only "Look, it has famous people," then it's a wax museum come to life and that's really boring. It's sort of like what they say about science fiction and horror where the really good ones, if you remove that element of it, it still has to work. That's the reason The Shining works or Rosemary's Baby or Blade Runner.More James Ponsoldt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You just work really hard and scrutinize. What is it called in politics? "Opposition research"? You want to do the detective work on your client so to speak before your opponent can dig it up. We're vetting everything thoroughly.More James Ponsoldt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Whether a project is large or small, it doesn't matter much to me as long as I feel I can serve the story as best as possible.More James Ponsoldt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
