Derek Cianfrance is a director and writer to look out for; the acclaimed ‘Blue Valentine’ delivers emotionally raw punches throughout and feels nouvelle vague in approach but not in execution, while last year’s more stylized ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’ is a cross-generation thriller with multiple protagonists. His films have inspired me a great deal and I wanted more people to get to know this extraordinary artist, and what better way to do that than through his own words.
There are two versions of Insight: Derek Cianfrance. The first is van Dijkhuizen’s preferred edit, but it contains cursing, violence, and The Place Beyond the Pines spoilers. If all the bad words and revealing details put you off of the above version, check out the more SFW, more spoiler-free cut below. Insight: Derek Cianfrance resembles van Dijkhuizen’s “[the films of]” series in that it spotlights a particular director’s style, but the addition of Cianfrance’s own words adds a welcome perspective. It’s unclear whether he plans on doing more of these Insight videos, but we can think of plenty more directors we’d like to see him tackle if he does.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
