NYT: Saving the Story (the Film Version)


2 of 5 stars
What’s this?

Fearing that the traditional mode of narrative storytelling is increasingly at risk from disruptive new technologies, the Media Lab at M.I.T. is looking at the problem more closely. This article includes quotes from Bob Farrelly (of the Farrelly brothers):

“‘If you go off the beaten path, say, give them something bittersweet, they’re going to tell you they’re disappointed,’ Mr. Farrelly said. He spoke from his home in Massachusetts, where he is working on the script for a Three Stooges picture, and said he missed complex stories like that of ‘The Graduate.’“ Hilarious bit of irony there.
