Looks like we don't have Ben Barenholtz interesting facts information. Sorry!
|1||[in a 1990 interview] Fox did not have a say in cast, title -- nothing. Do you think "Miller's Crossing" would have looked like that, would have had that ending if Fox - or any other major - had final cut? Of course not. They would have pigeonholed it.|
|2||[in a 1990 interview] What you hear about Hollywood is a lot of myth - from both directions. There's a misunderstanding about what it's all about. It's not about filmmaking at all. The number one priority is that people want to hold onto their jobs. Number two is the ego, and number three is the money,|
|3||[About the Coen brothers] They're sensitive, determined, and know what they want. Their objective is to have total artistic freedom. The priority was never the money. It's heir work. They want to work without interference. So I created that context... What director do you know who had final cut and total artistic control on his second picture? Well, that's what Joel had.|
|4||[in a 1990 interview] You can't teach them new ways to lose money in Hollywood. The old ways are fine because they're accepted, and their jobs are safe, but you can't get creative.|
