You have to wonder what Angelina Jolie is doing on that table. Everyone else brings so much to the conversation as a director. Jolie may be a huge humanitarian (and she is), but any other prominent director would have been a better inclusion on this table instead of her. They should've got Matt Reeves (for Apes).

Joe Wright was also mostly a waste, but his father's story was quite insightful. del Toro, Jenkins, Gerwig, Villeneuve were wonderful to listen to.

Tom Hanks @ 42mins asking Gary Oldman about a particular scene in Darkest Hour... it is such a casual and short comment/question, but perhaps that is what the actor's guild and academy see when the see Oldman's performance as Churchill, which we don't. And which is why probably some performances win awards that look pedestrian or showy to us.

I stopped this 18-minutes in, coz I realised they are talking about their movies assuming it has been watched (as it should be). I'll come back to this after I'm done watching all these 5 movies.

Sorry, I tried to see the first video and it was utterly boring. For the time spent on these, I could watch another film instead. Not for me I am afraid.
Narrative is the poison of cinema...There's nothing more beautiful than elusiveness in cinema.
