So I had this new idea for my photography that I was gonna take a picture of everything that I owned so it would be a self-portrait of myself throught the stuff that I have. - 20th Century Women (2016)
Baby boomer goals: home ownership, 2.5 kids, dream vacations to florida/hawaii
Millenial goals: having any money left after bills, an apartment without roommates, dying quickly and painlessly in the initial nuclear exchange to avoid witnessing the collapse of humanity
my favorite part in attack of the clones is when obi-wan just fucks off to play space nancy drew on Clone Rain Planet with the alarming giraffe-necked aliens and swans in like “HELLO IT’S ME, the jedi who definitely… … was here before and probably, uh, spoke to you, and stuff” and theyre like “ah you are here for the order” and hes like “beg pardon” and theyre like “the order of millions of identical human men?” and hes like “RIGHT YES. ABSOLUTELY I AM HERE FOR THE ORDER OF MILLIONS OF IDENTICAL HUMAN MEN”
and then later when he SNEAKS INTO A CORNER TO FUCKING… facetime yoda… like “ok so we have these millions of identical human men who were apparently suspiciously ordered for us by someone???” and yodas fucking response is just “when countless sapient lemons life gives you…….. send those lemons into intergalactic battle you must”
and obi-wan’s like “shit man you’re so right"
There literally isn’t a frame of this scene where Obi-Wan doesn’t look confused as hell
“Now, had we shot on the tank I don’t think Jaws would have been very successful, because it would look really phony. So I really insisted on the sea, but innumerable problems… physical problems, came along with my decision. One of the first things we had to do was find a open sea where you couldn’t see land, and where there was a 30 foot flat, sandy bottom so the shark sled would have some place to [stand]… It had to be 30 feet because if it was 40 feet, the shark could never get out of the water. We had a shark arm that only went up so high. The problem about shooting in the shallows 10 to 12 miles out to sea is that the shallows pile on the waves. You don’t get breaking waves out there, but you get some swell out there because of the shallowness. So we picked the worst place in the world to shoot.”
Spielberg talks to Entertainment Weekly about the difficulties of shooting Jaws at sea.
