Alan Schneider on Samuel Beckett’s “Film”
The blog A Piece of Monologue has this interesting reflection from Alan Schneider, the director of Samuel Beckett’s “Film.” It’s also intriguing to hear from the makers of a film about the challenges encountered while making the movie. I was surprised to learn that Keaton was not the first choice, nor even the second. Part of what I loved about “Film” was how it seemed to be tailor made for Buster, and became a meta comment on the meta comments of Keaton himself. Just goes to show, huh?
The post also has some really awesome pictures. Here’s one of them, but be sure to check out the post and the other pics.
