“Big screen or big ideas?” – Guillermo del Toro commented on the current state of affairs in the film industry

Written by admin

Guillermo del Toro, of course, one of the most talented directors of our time, but even it is not easy for him to adapt to the new reality of reality, which has less and less to do with art. Discussing the current state of affairs in cinema, he said that being in this field now is like trying to catch up with a locomotive.

It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. All I know is that as it is now, it will not be. So far, everything is unstable. In many ways, what we have at the moment is outdated.

The director added that the scale of change in the industry is comparable to the stage of sound cinema in the 1920s.

Here is the scale of the change. Not only the way of serving has changed, but also the attitude to the audience. Are we just trying to keep her or continue to be brave seekers?

We have to ask ourselves, what is a movie? Big screen or big ideas? A sequence of frames or something that keeps us going with visual effects, music and sounds, taking us where no other art can?

The director’s latest film, Alley of Nightmares, won four Oscar nominations, including the main one. And the next of the upcoming releases is the animated musical “Pinocchio” for Netflix, which was voiced by Cate Blanchett, Finn Wolfhardt, Ewan McGregor and Tilda Swinton.
