    I also wanted to read the rest of the article…
    Very interesting stuff. Your writing is truly gigantic (as befitting your Hulk persona) but it never feels unnecessary. You made me think of actors in a very different way thanks to this article.

    Cheers.

  3. Another aspect of acting that people ought to know: how much editing plays into a performance. I had an instructor who once said that every actor who wins an award should accept it alongside their editor, or at least thank their editor before anyone else in an acceptance speech.

    Seriously, a good editor can elevate a bad or flat performance, just as a bad editor can ruin a perfectly good or serviceable performance. They take every piece of what the actor gives to the camera, try to winnow it down to the best bits, and then assemble it as a coherent whole. With the exception of writers (most directors at least respect editors, because they know they need them to put the movie together), editors are probably the most unjustly overlooked people in the film business. Which is especially heinous considering that editing is what makes film a distinct art form.

      EDITORS ARE AMAZING.

      EDITORS SHOULD STAND ALONG ANYONE WHO WINS AN AWARD FOR ANYTHING IN A MOVIE. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY GREAT CINEMATOGRAPHERS SUPPLY SHIT COVERAGE AND THEN GO ON TO WIN AWARDS? AND HOW AMAZING EDITORS SAVE THEIR ASSES? HOW OFTEN THEY RESHAPE THE NARRATIVE TO COMPLETELY FIX THE MOVIE?

      DO YOU KNOW THE STORY OF ANNIE HALL?

      MARCIA LUCAS SAVED STAR WARS TO BOOT.

      • The story of Annie Hall? You mean Anhedonia?

        Editors have all my admiration. Doing the editing on a few ten minute long shorts was taxing enough; the thought of putting together a feature makes me woozy. But editing is soooo much fun! You take together a whole bunch of raw material, and you’re the one who actually makes the movie!

        If the editor was the one person you were to change on a film, it would alter the movie more than if you did so with any other position in the production.

    Sure, I don’t know shit about these people, except you really can’t deny that Mel Gibson is an asshole. Don’t need to actually know him personally to figure that out. And even though Braveheart is one of my favorite movies of all time, I will never knowingly contribute money to Mel Gibson ever again. Whether he is an actor, director, producer, or any other credit (I’m not sure how to tell if he’s involved with a movie other than the credits), I will not pay to see that movie in the theater, or buy it or rent it. I’ll watch it if it’s on tv, though.

      FOR SURE THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT IT IS OKAY TO DRAW LINES IN THE SAND WITH SOME FOLKS. THE SHIT HE DID = UNFORGIVABLE. YOUR DECISION TOTALLY JUSTIFIED. HULK WOULD JUST SAY THAT AN EXTREME SITUATION AND MOST OF THE TIME (LIKE WITH THE GOSSIPY STUFF) IT JUST MADE UP NONSENSE. AND BACK TO GIBSON EVERYTHING WHAT HE DID UNFORGIVABLE (REALLY) BUT HULK FIND IN INTERESTING THAT SOMEONE LIKE JODIE FOSTER (SUPER PROGRESSIVE) WOULD STAND BY IT. EVERYTHING, NO MATTER HOW HORRIBLE, HAS THIS WEIRD HUMAN STORY BEHIND IT… MAYBE THAT JUST WHAT HULK SAYING.

      HULK DUNNO.

    FILM CRIT HULK, ALL IMAGES BROKEN AND END OF ARTICLE STILL CUT OFF. WTF!!!

    VERY GOOD PIECE, BTW

    • FILMCRITHULK said

      HULK SORRY:/ RIGHT AFTER HULK CAME ON BOARD, BADASS DID A WHOLE UPGRADE AND EVERY SINGLE ARTICLE GOT IN THE ARCHIVE GOT CUT OFF! THEY REALLY TRIED FIXING IT, BUT THERE STILL PROBLEMS WITH THAT SADLY. AND HULK HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE POSTINGS, HULK JUST GIVE THE ARTICLES. SO HULK CAN’T GO IN AND FIX. AND TO REQUEST WOULD REALLY BE ASKING FOR SPECIAL TREATMENT SO HULK NOT SURE. BUT HULK WILL LOOK INTO ONCE AGAIN. HULK APOLOGIZE!
