    • A great start from Spielberg. I love that story about Spielberg’s dad trying to use the home video camera and Spielberg as a young kid mocking him. So the dad says “If you think you can do better…”

      • I’m framing your comment, Alex! You know, just in case I need it(which happens every now and then). You have a good weekend. Have you seen or heard anything about the Robert Redford film?

      • I’m a big fan of your work, but especially your Winter stuff. I think you have ice in your veins 😉

        I think it’s been pushed out by all the Oscar heavy films. If you like the actor, you should give it a shot. The film is mostly just him from what I’ve heard.
