If you're going to be directing a film that's largely made of archival material like this one, which totally makes sense at any rate, if you're fan of Ashby or curious about the social and political climate around filmmaking in the seventies America, definitely check it out. And if you're in New York at the IFC center, they also have a retrospective of how Espy's films going on, how so if you get a ticket to the documentary, whatever Ashby film is playing after that you can do to for one double feature that you compared with it.

So we were always trying to play with the idea. You know what normally would you do here? Oh, okay. Let's just move the camera a little bit over here. Let's make sure we're not always matching the eyeliner directly. We were always playing with the idea of what audience might expect versus what they were getting. And you can read that whole interview on the site how to block a ghost story DP ole brat, Brooklyn on the unsettling the little stranger, Brad Berkman. I love him.
