Episode Notes

Concentrating on skill sets. Similar themes with differing points of voice on auteur theory. Disturbing news on the Double Feature Year 9 Kickstarter. Who creates a film? Holly on-set secrets. The hierarchy in a movie production. Thief compared to related films, both director and producer. What does Bruce Willis think about all this? Why auteurism matters (and why it can’t be ‘solved.’) The insane threads in the fabric of Thief. Enter Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai! When the insane name of insane movie does not serve to make it any more sane. Acting as a label and measure of a film. Filmset’s as playgrounds. Speculation on Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.
