Movie Info

In this unusual documentary based on a series of identical questions addressed to world-famous directors such as Werner Herzog, Steven Spielberg, and Jean-Luc Godard, director Wim Wenders placed each of his colleagues one-by-one in a single room, gave them one reel (11 minutes) of time to look into the stationary camera if they chose, and answer set questions. The juxtaposition of so many individualistic, experienced, and innovative filmmakers commenting on topics like television's effect on cinema, the influence of ad techniques, the tendency toward miniseries, and other relevant subjects offers worthwhile moments that are unlikely to be found elsewhere.

Film makers talking about the future of cinema in 1982. Fascinating documentary.

With the dull docmentary "Room 666," Wim Wenders wastes a valuable opportunity when he talks to several notable directors during the 1982 Cannes Festival.(However, Werner Herzog is fun to watch but you knew that already.) What he asks them is about the end of cinema which is the subject of a hack article every six months. Look, since you're reading this, you know cinema is not dead, thirty years later. And thirty years from now, cinema will still be thriving, even as it may look a little different and available for downloading directly into your brain at the Georgetown Metro Station.
