Hey folks what a surprise this thread is...
I absolutely loved TBALC's film last night. Every single thing in it contributes to the story, every shot and every line is funny in and of itself as well as serving the plot and themes. That shit is tight and it's very hard to nail.
Sometimes you get lucky, enough planets align and that sort of thing happens. It happened for us with ILE. Since then I've very consciously tried to write films that are as far away from it as possible to try avoid the inevitable comparisons.
It hasn't really worked.
I've stopped reading reviews of our films because I find it too disheartening. I think (or at least hope) we're still making interesting, specific and funny films but we constantly get slammed for not being able to make lightning strike twice. So there you go guys, maybe that's something for you to look forward to, although with two years in a row maybe you've broken that. So, well played. Well played indeed.
Like Alex, I also loved dystography's film. Gold.
Well done everyone. Always a good night out.
