    Saw it yesterday. First feature I've seen in a long time that really got its claws into me. So impressed by Joaquim's performance, the production design and Larry's fantastic cinematography. I admit...

    I negotiated my own deals as a Steadicam operator for many years and got pretty good at it, but it sometimes required playing serious hardball with the line producer. One time I remember that guy...
