"People have to go to the movies. There should be no cinema everywhere, in every city. You can't watch a movie on your phone, it does not make sense. " He said the great Oliver Stone, guest speaker yesterday at the Iab forum in Milan, meeting dedicated to digital communication and in which we participated to go hear this sacred monster of the cinema that has given us so many emotions.
So much for the audience, which is mostly composed of digital communications professionals who live constantly with your smartphone or tablet, the great oscar-winning director for Platoon and born on 4 July threw a jab at those who use these devices for the seventh art: "in the United States people watch tv primarily for sporting events , not for movies, for movies you go to the movies! ". In Italy and not only it would take cinema in all cities. Because that's where you can really enjoy this art form as a whole, not on a mobile phone, a tablet and even, according to Stone, on a television.
What do you think of the movies now? "There are some nice movies, and even those who just enjoy themselves are fine, not all movies should reflect!" said the Director. "But some movies are only there to make money. As the last of the series Jurassik Park, which I thought was tremendous, but he hit at the box office in the United States. It makes me wonder why. "
And while we're at the Iab Forum, can not miss a question on the use of technology in movies, now part of modern films: "technology helps, also I used. But we must not abuse it, otherwise the movie becomes boring! ".
The question of questions, how does one become a storyteller, a "storyteller", a romantic way to tell Director, Stone responded: "for me it wasn't a gift, I wasn't born storyteller. But it became thanks to my father. When I was little, I said that I would pay if I wrote one theme per week. And I did it. It all started from there, "says smiling.
