I knew from the trailer that this would be going to the top of my queue.

Turns out, it’s brilliant, one of the best American movies of the past few years. The acting is fun and the characters hilarious.

But more, it’s a whodunnit crossed with a Hitchcock thriller, so that not even the characters know what really happened. The twists pile on, leading me to suspect a bit of shark jumping at first, but the plot was so tight I had to relent.

So, this is another must-see, and it touches on elite depravity, the children of privilege and their mammon cult. A true dark comedy, we need more like this.

‘I Love You, Daddy’ trailer faces backlash amid Harvey Weinstein scandal

Reading the complaints and then actually watching the trailer leaves me in a state of cognitive dissonance.

Odd that film people are criticizing the “timing” when it takes a year or two to bring something to the screen. For fuck’s sake. Looks like I need to check this one out.

In episode 1 I mentioned ‘drunk cam.’ Here’s what it looks like:

Those shots are at 16 frames per second, maximum shutter and then slowed down so it doesn’t play back too quickly at 24 fps. Later in the episode there is a very surreal 12 fps sequence.

I had to make an irreversible decision at that final scene. Do I simply shoot the whole thing with drunk cam? What if it’s too smeared and hard to tell what’s being filmed? I did all sorts of tests ahead of time, and I was torn about 18, 16, 14 fps. When we filmed and there was no time to screw around anymore it dawned on me that we HAD to separate the aesthetics from other shows. That’s one area where we can…
