Scott, I’m yet to see the film. I didn’t get your point from the music but felt it was his way of reverse psychology on the ex.
You wrote an article recently on imagining the finished product of a screenplay, which was so constructive that it sent me back to where mine stood and would it meet the cravings of hungry movie fans or views on cable networks.
Interestingly, When I started my spec it reminded me of Mister Murdstone, Dicken’s antagonist in David Copperfield. It served as my villain.
Alan Rickman (now deceased) came to mind as the perfect Actor to attach to my work. His charms, manipulations, and wit made him the perfect candidate.
Désirée ought to realize the question of attachment may come up in the room, a kind-sort-of test to see the passion one has for the craft.
Actors grow with changes in the business. I hardly see an Actor today who is identified as a character actor.
The film Sunset Boulevard is the perfect example of Hollywood no longer desirous to hire the role of the aging character played by Gloria Swanson, who couldn’t accept she was a star the pictures outgrew.
Actor’s like Mel Gibson lead in varying genres and each role is different. Braveheart, Payback, What women want, Master and Commander, Mad Max and The Patriot.
Charlize Theron: Atomic Blonde, Mad Max Fury Road, Monster, The Italian Job, The Devil’s Advocate and Snow White and the Huntsman.
