We Need To Talk About Kevin - The best film I’ve seen in a long time. I highly recommend investing in the book and reading it firstly, a lot of the issues shown in the film aren’t explained, you could miss a lot of the power that this film could have over you if you choose to ignore the book.
If you have some spare pennies and you wanted to make an investment, do it in this book and film. You won’t have wasted your money.
Among Guillermo del Toro’s most prized possessions is a leather-bound journal that he carries with him at all times. It is where he sketches and writes down his ideas and muses for future films. In this particular notebook was four years worth of ruminations that would eventually become Pan’s Labyrinth. The movie almost never came to be, as del Toro had exited a London cab one evening and neglected to take with him his notebook. The cab driver found the notebook, as well as a scrap of paper with a hotel logo on it. Recognising the logo, the cab driver returned the notebook and del Toro was so elated with its return that he rewarded the cab driver $900.
A little reference for my presentation.
