Paul Thomas Anderson: “I’m very jealous of your close-ups… There’s a long line of people who have really tried to do Jonathan Demme close-ups and I try all the time, but I have to say, you got it right better than anybody…I’m like how is he doing that? I’ve tried so hard. I suppose it has to do with the right faces, but it has to do a little more than that…”

Barry Jenkins: “When I’m casting, I am casting for faces… I want faces that are open, that will invite the audience in… I don’t plan them… Every now and then there’s a moment. Acting is… an intellectual thing, so there’s always distance between the actor and the character. Sometimes on set, I’ll just find or feel this moment where the actor and the character, the distance shrinks. There is no space between them. What the audience is seeing if they are looking directly at them is the soul. It sounds like bullshit… but there’s just this moment where the actor, where everything just peels away. I tell the actor to just look right into the camera, and usually there is no dialogue. When you introduce dialogue the intellect kicks back in… There’s always a moment, especially in these last two films, where the audience has to look directly into the eyes of the characters in order to really feel what they’re feeling… When we do these scenes, the idea is to make them radically immersive… By mistake, we showed [If Beale Street Could Talk] in IMAX in DC, and oh my goodness– We shot it on ALEXA 65, the aspect ration was 2:1, so it’s in what they call “lie-MAX,” which is 1:93 not 4:3… so we’re like, way beyonds specs. The close-ups, Regina [King] and the wig, oh my god, in the mirror… It’s like, yes, yesit’s like “human vision,” I like to call it.”

plvtarch:

“I can have that feeling sometimes of real joy in sadness. Or that kind of joy that you get from a sad song that’s got you crying your eyes out, that’s just making you feel so deeply. It just kind of overcomes you with—whether it’s melancholy, or just sadness, and it allows you to kind of open the floodgates and to sit in that for three or four minutes in the song. That can be so great. It’s just as therapeutic as hearing an up-tempo dance number that makes you want to jump around the house. I mean, those things can have the same effect. And sometimes it’s nice. I think I’ve always been a sucker for those kinds of things.”

Paul Thomas Anderson for GQ, 12/20/17
