"I finally got tired of other people directing and me writing, so I went to see a movie every night for six months. And if I thought the movie was worth studying I saw it twice that same night until I felt that I knew enough to direct. I learned right in the beginning from Jack Ford, and I learned what not to do by watching Cecil B. De MIlle."

french trailer posters for “Gone Girl”

Indiewire gave Gone Girl a C+. Get outta here!!!!!

You name me a picture that people go to just to escape their feelings and I’ll name you a bad picture. People go to have their emotions AROUSED. Anyone who goes to a movie not to be emotionally affected is an asshole. They might as well dig a pit and jump in. I don’t believe people do that. I think the escape theory is a lie. You go to Hitchcock to be frightened. You go to “The Exorcist” to be scared. You go to “Orient Express” to match wits with the smart guys, to play detective. You go to “Towering Inferno” to see a fire. We’re talking about EMOTIONS. No one goes just to sit there. You think a “Death Wish” isn’t talking to your emotions? There’s no reason why a serious film, one about life, can’t be “enjoyable”, maybe even fun. Emotions can be very entertaining. I try to use them generously in my films.

I was proud of the simple fact that I somehow avoided a major embarrassment in this moment.
