Who the FUCK was the God Damn GENIUS behind mixing Mumford and Sons and Ke$ha?!
Who gave you the right.
I sometimes have this theory that the film that wins the Oscar is a film that you could only watch once. That’s part of the requirement. Because you need to get everything you could possibly get out of it on one watch. If there’s anything else in it, it’s too much to take in. It just needs to be the kind of thing that just reveals all of itself in one go.
It’s one of the most iconic opening sequences in film, and while some accounts of the shoot say the scene was fraught with difficulties (hordes of looky-loos clamoring for a glimpse of the star, her revulsion toward Danishes, an electrical accident that zapped a crew member), director Blake Edwards claimed that the scene was easy to shoot, with the usually busy street clearing up as cameras rolled. “It was as if God said, ‘I’m going to give you a break now, but for the rest of your career you’re going to have to live off this one,’” he recalled. According to his widow, Julie Andrews, Edwards claimed he got the scene in one take.
