When it looks like they are doing it. And when it looks like the “beat” starts to become an actual beat. (I feel like it’s becoming one these days.)
And you can see how fast the beat is getting there.
It’s hard work.
“I don’t know,” I think back to last year’s audition, a few months before Halloween. “I really don’t. I don’t really have an ability. It’s a bit of luck, to say the least.” And it wasn’t just luck that got us through to the end of this year. It felt good to finally have the chance to make this film. I wasn’t sure if at the time I was doing the right thing, in order to help these kids get back on their feet.
But I don’t know that that is the case anymore. I don’t know if now is the right time.
So, if you are thinking of giving Waltz a shot in your theater, this is the kind of time to do it.
Because you’ll see a real work of art. You’ll see an attempt to help some kids get their life together, because no matter what the situation is, it’s never as bad as it first seems. It’s always a little better, even when you think you don’t. The idea that things are always so far from how they were at first isn’t what they think it is. They believe they’re on the right path. When they think they’re on the right path, they are. But because they’re too optimistic about their life at the beginning, and you can tell they have a lot of doubt about that, they’re going to have a much harder time of it, over many, many years.
If you haven’t seen Waltz or don’t think you should, you can do so here.
And watch a short film I’ve posted about the making of Waltz, if that sounds up your alley.
It’s called “Let’s Start A Dance Party” and it stars Emily Watson, Emily Blunt, Emma Watson, Natalie Portman, Paul Rudd, and Jesse Eisenberg. I found it on the wonderful Movieguide film blog. It’s a great movie, one of my favorites. It’s the kind of thing that makes you want to see more.
As always, I’m grateful to the cast and crew of Waltz for sharing their time and work with me. There’s not a
