Let Me Take You To The Movies

Been a while since I’ve mentioned it, (like over a year? yipes…) but our old Friend of the Site Rob Morton is an aspiring filmmaker. I’ve seen two of his completed works. His graduate film, Tornado Boy, can be seen right here.

His first movie though, a black and white documentary, is hosted by yours truly. The film is “Broadway Barber”, and I’ve maybe watched it a dozen times now, and every time I see something new and cool going on in the background. If you watch both films, you can definitely see a cohesive style in Rob’s directoral choices; think Wes Anderson, with a little bit of Bill Forsyth, Lasse Hallstrom, or Hal Ashby thrown in.

I can’t wait to see his big-screen debut. Oh, and back at the old site, Rob wrote a really, really cool intro to Broadway Barber, and I’ve since lost it. Would love to have a Rob Morton commentary track on this, hint-hint.
