One Film, Two Directors (or) Why I Write the Details
I watched this and thought, this is how I write.
I love including the extra details, the little diversions that temporarily distract us from the story, but somehow deepen it when we come back to it. An agent once returned a manuscript of mine with the complaint, “Excellent line by line writing. There’s just too much of it”. I know that’s the style these days– no fat, just plot. But that’s not what I like to read, and therefore it isn’t what I write.
Film or writing fans, this is an extremely interesting comparison of the same film edited by two famous but completely different directors.
