Like any other human endeavor, filming is a transformative experience … What really sucks is that, for a lot of those people, that transformation was wisdom, for me, it was the color of my hair.
I hope you all know that Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity director) was also the brilliant mind behind Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and if it wasn’t for him the wizards and witches in the cinematic masterpiece that is Harry Potter wouldn’t have had their own unique wand designs.
If it wasn’t for him, all the young leads would never have challenged themselves to better themselves as actors.
The look of Harry Potter wouldn’t have been so distinctive and Gothic and fantastic. It would have looked like Gondor stuff in Lord of the Rings.
The moment Cuaron agreed to step behind the camera, the Potter series shot up in terms of artistic credibility and ambition.
Wes Anderson @ NYPL Live Tonight
Tonight, NYPL Live's Paul Holdengräber will be speaking to Wes Anderson about that new flick of his, The Grand Budapest Hotel—and, we expect, a little bit about one of the main inspirations for the film, Stefan Zweig. Just a guess, but a good guess.
The event itself is sold out, but you can watch the live stream tonight from 7-8pm and learn more about the event here.
