It is still not here. However, I e-mailed MV about it and he asked for my adress and what was in the package. I gave him one and my order number (also mentioned that I will send it back if the other packet arrives) and he replied "you got it". Which, as far as I understand, means that my Hook just shipped yesterday. Again. Good chap, this MV!
From a storytelling point of view, from a directing point of view, there is one thing I associate with what he does, which is calm. There is such an inherent calm and inherent trust of the one powerful image, that he makes me embarrassed with my own work, in terms of how many different shots, how many different sound effects, how many different things we’ll throw at an audience to make an impression. But with Kubrick, there is such a great trust of the one correct image to calmly explain something to audience. There can be some slowness to the editing. There’s nothing frenetic about it. It’s very simple. There’s a trust in simple storytelling and simple image making that actually takes massive confidence to try and emulate.
