Double Feature | Year 12 (2020)
The final stop in a look at the roles of writer and cinematographer with David Mamet and Roger Deakins. Redbelt as a film not only written but also directed by David Mamet. An alternate to the action path more commonly traveled. Blade Runner 2049 as a film completely alien to the cinema landscape today. Roger Deakins as an invisible hand in a purely visible discipline. Michael and Eric disagree over how uncommon blockbuster sci-fi is today. This is the last episode in the Writer + Cinematographer adventure, but make sure to catch one final look back as conclusions are reached in the upcoming Year 12 Finale.
