Edgar Wright remembers Tony Scott. (via supervillain)
Scott followed up this neon explosion with the film that is fast becoming his most cherished work; ‘True Romance’. It’s quite ironic that this movie has been trending all day on Twitter, as it was one of Tony Scott’s few financial flops. But this is absolutely no indication of the quality of the movie. Indeed I barely need to tell any of you how great this film is.
Having seen it again recently on the big screen, what struck me is what Tony Scott does during the now classic scene between Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken. Nothing.
For a director often derided for his flashiness, it should be noted that he knew exactly when to reign his pyrotechnics in and just let a great scene play. And it’s worth noting that there’s nearly never a bad performance in any of his films.
