Hello Film Doctor friends.

Film Doctor Director Marc Webb

 

His concrete list of film picks is rather short, but here is why:

I don’t think I ever broke it down. I mean, I was moved equally by different kinds of films. I think oftentimes we’re trained to look down on big movies because it’s just easier to be cynical about Hollywood than it is to be cynical about independent films. But I think truly there’s a level of craft that goes on in a lot of the Hollywood movies that’s really very good. I mean, you look at any Spielberg movie, like Close Encounters or E.T. – the domestic dramas that are going on within those movies are just so good. Like the performances you get out of those kids, it’s really genuinely extraordinary and as good as any indie small film. So, to me, it’s not about big or small, it’s about how good the story is.”  (M. Webb, 2012)
