Maggie Gyllenhaal‘s Crazy Heart performance works for everyone and then some, but is it leading or supporting? I saw it as supporting from the get-go, which didn’t strike me as a problem in the least. The Fox Searchlight guys were feeling differently about this a week or two ago, but maybe they’ve come around.

I shot this with my Canon Elph. Bit of a strange angle but I had to keep it close to pick up her voice. There’s a lot that goes into assembling a decent video interview piece. I have to remind myself not to shoot ones that go on for 30 or 40 minutes. It took forever to load and convert this sucker to mp4 and then cut it up into three portions. I’ve got enough aggravation as it is, and now I’m late for my Thanksgiving dinner.
