Cuba Gooding Jr.'s directorial debut, costarring Famke Janssen and Richard Dreyfuss. Available now on various streaming platforms. I haven't seen it yet, so I can't speak to its quality, but my friends were co-producers and I did some VFX work on it. I don't make any additional money from you paying to watch it, but my friends might, so do it for them.
That's some catch, that Catch-22.

This is definitely a Dreyfuss I have not seen before.

Accurate. It's interesting, because there's a layer of abstraction to the whole process. It's like, I'm working for Cuba Gooding Jr., which feels like a big deal, but my only correspondence is through the assistant editor, which tempers that feeling a little bit, but then I'm working on a shot and I'm rotoscoping around Richard Dreyfuss' head, which feels like a big deal again. Then it sits on the shelf for the better part of a year and finally releases to little fanfare. But I know of at least two people who have watched the movie not knowing that I had worked on it until they spotted my name in the credits, so that's a cool feeling right there.

Anyway, I should probably watch the movie at some point.

Cinema, particularly these days, needs more Richard Dreyfuss.

I was actually thinking something very similar recently:
More Gene Hackman.

Good luck talking him out of retirement after almost fifteen years, though.
