TECHNICAL AND ARTISTIC CHALLENGES

by, Curtis Galindo-Orozco, and Peter Levy Michael Edols

 

Dear Curtis,

Thank you, for your kind words and yes I do remember you.

Yes, you may occasionally write to me "with questions regarding various technical and artistic challenges". These questions along with others, from past and present queries shall become the substance of the web page.

I do like your catch-phrase "…In the pursuit of cinematography…" It is always a good idea to have such an idea written on the back of ones bedroom door.

Somewhere at least where you can see it before you meet each day. They help us stay on track as there are as we all know, times when our training and integrity is challenged by out side forces.

In regard to 'The Thin Red Line'

You may or may not come to discover the 'Internet Movie Data Base'. Their active web page is to be found as: -

Here you will find an intelligent review on TRL. For my part I have said; "It may be true that Terrence Malick takes twenty years between movies. Simply, this time Malick has made a masterpiece of, 'The Thin Red Line'.

 

 

With out any doubt here is a European, rather than a Hollywood touch to filmmaking. The considered detail of scene after scene; the courage to hold a scene beyond comfort; the eye for detail in bold close ups; the insightful monologues of men in fear and pain and the beauty of nature juxtaposed against the cruelty of men at war, are the mix of poetry and the harshness of reality, which in my opinion make this a classic.

We witness more than a poet at work, Terrence Malick is one of the quintessential directors of our time.

On the other hand my friend Peter Levy of 'Lost in Space' and 'Predator 2' fame, has a different take on TRL. As it happens Peter was one time understudy of mine and has become a Hollywood superstar special effect DOP. So here is Peter's perception of Malick and TGL. >>>>
