We aren't the grandfathers of any movement. In the 1980s, the so-called indie film movement was a media creation. What I found irritating is that 'independent' became an encomium. If it was independent, it was supposed to be good, and studio films were bad. Obviously, there are bad independent films and good studio films. See more »

Trivia:

Along with his brother Joel, edits all of the films they direct under the shared pseudonym "Roderick Jaynes." He has said that if "Jaynes" ever won an Academy Award for Best Editing, it would not be accepted by either of them and simply claimed by the Price-Waterhouse representative (who would presumably have it sent to one of them after the ceremony).
