Did You Know?
Like Fellini, I think that the "noble" film is the trap of traps, the sneakiest swindle in the industry. For a real film-maker, nothing could be more boring to make than a "Bridge On The River Kwai" - scenes set inside office alternating with discussions between old fogies and some action scenes usually filmed by another crew. Rubbish, traps for fools, Oscar machines.
