    So many other youtube interview channels ruin their content with tons of jarring jumpcuts, camera changes and corny music. I appreciate DP/30 for showing us the raw, uninterrupted interview.

    If there's anyone who deserves an Oscar, it's Jake Gyllenhaal. He deserved one for Prisoners and Nightcrawler.

    17:38 I know he’s talking about Scott Lane, a Los Angeles stringer who runs the company Loudlabs. They have their own TVclip channel. He’s an interesting character who does some risky, sometimes shady stuff to get footage. He even sounds like Lou Bloom when he talks.

    Thought he was great in Nightcrawler, a real sociopathic nightmare and Enemy. Seems like a very likeable guy as well and so of course he hasn't got an oscar. I'll be very surprised if he doesn't get one before I die, but then I do live in a heavily guarded and very nutritionally healthy bunker with the best medics available. I have full confidence in the oscar process.

  • Violet Daisy
    Violet Daisy 4 years ago +45

    Will smith, Leonardo dicaprio, Johnny depp, jake gyllenhaal, Tobey maguire.. None has got an Oscar. But they are the best actors out there. The oscars is a joke.

      @Ian Smart Yep, I'm hoping for that. The next few years could be really good for those guys. There are few things I like more than a decent film to watch.

    • Ian Smart
      Ian Smart 4 years ago +1

      @affalaffaa i AGREE. Leonardo and Jake are the best, but i think the others shouldn't be considered because they have given a few bad performances. There was a time when neither Jake or Leonardo were taken seriously and were seen as blockbuster pretty boys. It's easy to look at the present and see them as the only great ones, but all i'm saying is in the next 10 years we could see the best work come from the rest of them.

    • affalaffaa
      affalaffaa 4 years ago +2

      @Ian Smart I think the other three are great actors when the right film comes along for them. Depp in Donnie Brasco I particularly like, but neither he nor Pacino were nominated, for that film, at the oscars that year. Smith has his moments, Ali and pursuit of Happyness are good and I could not agree with the panning that some critics gave Hancock, a film I enjoyed, but It's not an oscar award winning performance from Smith.
      I chose DiCaprio and Gyllenhaal for the fact, in my eyes, that they have given consistently great and varied performances in their films. The way DiCaprio hasn't got an oscar yet is borderline scandalous! Maybe his luck will change with The Revenant. All just my opinion of course.

    I like Jake Gyllenhaal so much, that I can write his last name without misspellings! He is a good actor, and he is better and better with each movie. My favourite is that with the spider "Enemy". I did not like Nightcrawler, but I did like his performance... althought he is way too much on screen... I'd like him to peek a supporting role sometime. I believe he is making a great career and that oscar will come sooner or later. Appart from that, I'm from Argentina, so go "Wild tales"

  • Jack Borden

  • DaveNoodles

    Fantastic interview and a fantastic film. Also, the laid back( yet oddly still acting) film star shouldn't feel bad about Point Break. Bigelow rocks hard and I can say that with certainty despite not having not seen that Oscar winner one.
    Near Dark aka 80's Vampires With People From Aliens and Point Break aka Best Foot Chase Scene Ever both show that she knows how to kick ass. Hell I even liked her Blue Steel film back in the day. Fuck you, I was 11...

    DP does great interviews for people who REALLY care about the craft of movies. Gyllenhaal gives a knock out performance in one of the best movies of the year. His comments are fascinating. This is absolute catnip for people who truly value movies as as serious art.

      sean smithson 2 years ago +1

      DP/30, I interview a lot of genre people at conventions and have done a lot of interviews for print publication. I hate the glittery shit, and sometimes (like when I had three cast members of THE WALKING DEAD in front of an audience of 5k people) I did my research, talked about the craft, the importance of training, etc...pissed some people off massively because I didn't ask "what's it like to be bitten by a zombie?" bullshit. The actors? Insisted I handle their interviews if they should return.
      People are stupid and general audiences are of the TMZ generation. They don't know their shit, don't know the artists work, etc.
      You are doing the lord's work. Keep it up.

    And look at the role selection. Source Code, End of Watch, Prisoners, Enemy, Nightcrawler... and Everest, Southpaw and new movie of Jean-Marc Vallée in future. Jesus, this guy is on fire. On of the most interesting actors in Hollywood right now.
