Directors Note 2


A quote from Colin:

Well, we near our journey’s end and a lot of work has been done and much achieved. Temptation is to take the foot off the gas in a situation like this… and exactly the point where I disagree with Oscar Wilde when he said ‘the only way to deal with temptation is to yield to it’.

Without an ending to our story it means nothing, and the challenge is to secure something worthwhile that supports what we have done so far and subverts our audiences expectations. So whatever you’re expecting to happen I hope will not be the case. (Although I will admit that things are not looking good for Hugh’s evil plan being fruitful, although that may change with tonight’s edit.)

This has been the toughest job I’ve ever done by far, and that is almost definitely the reason for it being one of the most satisfying. There is of course far more on tape than on the internet, and by that I mean not only a ridiculous shooting ratio but also a lot of fantastic moments that are far from the cutting room floor, merely waiting for a little time and consideration that I can’t give them right now, from the road. But I will, that I promise you.

I have my fingers crossed for Hugh, such a generous, thoughtful and big hearted man deserves a good outcome from this. But he’s just evil enough to be pulling the wool over my eyes and no doubt already has what he wants… …I wonder.

Big Love – welcome to the beautiful nightmare
