Lost in Translation (2003) vs. Her (2013)

Sofia Coppola and Spike Jonze were married for 4 years before divorcing in 2003. Many people believe that Lost in Translation (2003) is about their marriage, Scarlett Johansson playing Sofia, describing the events that lead to the downfall of their relationship. Similarly enough, it is speculated that Her (2013) is Spike Jonze’s response to Coppola’s depiction, showing his point of view. The films feature similar themes and shots, like the one above.

Marla’s philosophy of life is that she might die at any moment. The tragedy, she said, was that she didn’t.

Harry. You’re not a bad person. You’re a very good person, who bad things have happened to. Besides, the world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters. We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.

[Medium-sized movies] are too risky. If you look at movies like… I guess, All the President’s Men was important enough and based on a big enough transgression. But take a movie like Klute – I don’t think that movie would be made today. I mean, The Godfather would have a hard time being made today. Even if you could put up the $75 million it would take to make that movie today, and you could guarantee that it would be one of the greatest movies of all time, people would still go, “$75 million? I dunno man, that’s a lot of bread…” There are realities to our business. The bottom has fallen out. Dramas that cost more than $20 million, you’re taking a big risk. I think Soderbergh was right. And it’s sad. I think the thing is to make movies cheaper. People are migrating to television to find characters that aren’t spandex-clad superheroes.

—David Fincher, in response to the question Did you see Soderbergh’s speech in San Francisco? He was lamenting the death of medium-sized movies. (via howtocatchamonster)

"Initially we kind of thought 'Wow. What an idea to have this face that everybody wants to photograph and film and put it behind the head'. And it’s a testament to how interested in acting Michael is; not being a star, but in being an actor. That challenge is appealing to him as well.” — Lenny Abrahamson

slightly-silly:

favourite cinematography  (1/…) ● IDA (2013) (dir. Pawel Pawlikowski)

Cinematography by Ryszard Lenczewski & Lukasz Zal 
We designed the unusual compositions to make the audience feel uncertain, to watch in a different way. We trust intuition first. Then we come to intellectual thinking, but in the end, we come back to intuition.”
I think it’s going to be okay. And afterwards, I’ll just be in my future. And, you know, we’ll go from there, right?
