ive known this for years now, but i just got reminded of this

i was just watching rocky three and there is a scene in it after Mickey dies they show rocky on a bridge and he is just standing there not talking , and that is the same exact shot p.t used of dirk for ambers documentary.

i love that for that great film he has taken inspiration from all sorts of places.  Lazy critics just want to say that this is a goodfellas rip off when its not, what he did is take the biography storytelling formula from goodfellas ( which should of set the standard for all great bios to come after it) and he filled it with all sorts of cool shit from all over.

snobs just want to go on and on about how he takes from people like Jacques Tati, but no he goes much deeper then that and finds cool shit in places snobs wouldnt be smart enough to look at, like " exhausted" no film snob would of watched that yet alone be highlly influenced by it, but i guess thats why he is who he is and they are doomed to spend life posting about what they think is shit

one, if your a fan of BN look out for the scene its kinda neat

and two, if you want to someday make good films open your horizons and take inspiration from weird far out places ,and not just the top 100 films your college professors tell you to like . Hell their might be a shot in police academy four that might inspire you, hell thats better then ripping off the same fucking goddard shots every other film student will that way you will find a original voice

dont worry fins this does not apply to we were not expecting much from you

you've been hooked three times, once out of water; if you expect nothing of me then just wait until the end when fuses get lit
