Interesting.

Youth Without Youth and Tetro were gorgeous looking.

I already miss Elswit, tho.  :yabbse-sad:

Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

What a great YouTube video accompanying the news.  Mihai Malaimare seems like a real deal cinematographer.  And he's Romanian!  Another potential gem in the crown of the Romanian New Wave.

Wow i remember reading that anonymous comment a while back and literally watched tetro to see his work. putting the descent movie aside, the cinematography of it was excellent.

I need to see what he can do with color though and apparently he worked on Coppola's new film as well.  Also he kinda looks related to P.T lol
anyway it was after i posted my first serious fanalysis. after the long post all he could say was that the main reason he wanted to see the master was cos of all the red heads.
  :P

i'll miss him too but this guy is pretty masterful. i loved the look of both Youf w/out Youf and Tets. especially the latter. that lil video clip somehow speaks to me that him and PTA will do good paired together. and we always thought it'd be interesting to see what another DP would do with his films.

i wonder if poor Elswit is bored with all these action flicks he's been lensing, bummed ol PT didnt invite him back (if that was the case) to break the monotony. him and Jon Brion sobbing together over a couple of beers.

anyone want a smores?

Let's use Mihai MALOMARES Jr. instead!

Was that joke too much of a reach? Too obscure?  :oops:

Ah, go to hell. All of you. I'll be passed out drunk in the woods somewhere soon.  :drool:

Given PTA's track record of scrapping initial footage, or entire subplots altogether, it'll be interesting to see how much of these first weeks of production really influence the final project. Stuff like that (potentially spoilerish) set report last week, might not even end up in the film at all. Add to that the fact that he's working with a new DP, and I'm curious how much of this initial shoot we may never get to see.

Can't wait to see what a PTA film minus Elswit looks like.

Though, I do hold the small - if unlikely - hope in Brion returning to score this film. His contributions to PTA's films only got better and better... not to mention monumentally better than the already exemplary score work he's done for other filmmakers
Maybe every day is Saturday morning.

I actually think the Magnolia score is Jon Brion's best work.

You know, I actually wouldn't contend with that assessment. You're right. "Masterful" can be a reductive word, but that is a masterful score.

Brion can occasionally lean on these light "pop" flourishes (that he is FUCKING GREAT at, I might add) but with Magnolia. It's a classic score that is beautifully constructed and, in that regard, is a pretty towering achievement.

Maybe the word I'm looking for isn't "better", but "adventurous". Their working relationship only seemed to grow from film to film.

The second video of Mihai Malaimare  is great :yabbse-grin:. definitely worthy to replace Elswit, he seems more creative and adventurous.  plus if P.T is still going to be using the 2001 65mm camera that will be awesome.
anyway it was after i posted my first serious fanalysis. after the long post all he could say was that the main reason he wanted to see the master was cos of all the red heads.

Inland Empire suffered from a lack of "no" men

What do you mean?

Sometimes autonomy isn't a great thing. It's good to have people who put you in check. just look at the new star wars, Lucas only had "yes" men around him. I think this problem applies to mainstream cinema as much as art house. Spike Jonze has had major input to keep charlie Kaufman's scripts a little more paletable. BJM and Adaptation both were way more out there before he put his fingers in it; imo for the better. I'm a strong believer that the more struggle you have with your art, different creative people discussing the material, and not one supreme dictator brings about better work.  Lynch needed someone to do that to ultimately cut down IE

So what's with the Elswit thing? Has there been any (semi)official reason for his departure?
the one last hit that spent you...

My guess is that the schedule conflicts with his commitment to the new Bourne movie.

Oh, I see what you mean. I completely disagree, though, and I'd like to see Lynch go even further than he did in Inland Empire.

Me too, but lynch is getting old and seems like no one wants to work with such a crazy old man especially after IE.
anyway it was after i posted my first serious fanalysis. after the long post all he could say was that the main reason he wanted to see the master was cos of all the red heads.
