DP/30: A Quiet Place, John Krasinski

  • Published on Nov 18, 2018
  • You know him from The Office and a parade of film roles, but the nascent director exploded things with A Quiet Place early in 2018 and the film still looks like a staple for decades to come almost a year later.John Krasinski sat down with David Poland to talk about the film, the journey and the future.

    At least he bothered to cast an actual Deaf girl as the daughter. Most big budget productions would opt for the lazy route and cast a hearing person. John deserves credit in that respect.

    The most horrific thing about Jaws wasn't even the shark. It was the nails down the chalk board. I recently listened to a radio reading of the book, and it was much more about class and masculinity and capitalism than the movie. I would like to see that version on screen.

    I'm only 4 minutes in, but I just realized that I love these interviews so much because you're not afraid to get into a short story yourself, and give your opinions on things. I'm sure these people are so used to just being asked questions all the time and never really having a conversation. Anyways, great stuff, thank you!

    • Herr Schmidt
      Herr Schmidt 11 months ago +5

      Indeed, it is a real conversation and not just a short promo pitch for their movie. Sometimes in these interviews you can see the surprise in their eyes when they realize they get asked questions going beyond the usual "Wasn't working with XY amazing?" kind and actually are allowed to talk about the process and craft usually ignored in promotion.

  • Lucan Reynolds

    I'm a little confused. He keeps referencing that the film is a 'genre movie'.
    What actually is a genre movie? I thought it was a film that fits into just one genre (like The Raid - action), but I would definitely say A Quiet Place isn't just horror. In fact, I would say it's more drama than horror/thriller.
    Amazing conversation by the way, one of my favourites recently.

    • Herr Schmidt
      Herr Schmidt 11 months ago +1

      I have the feeling the meaning of the term has shifted from "fitting one genre" to "being committed to make it work on the terms of a genre".

    • AttnDefDis
      AttnDefDis 11 months ago

      I agree. I found him saying that over and over really annoying. He acts like ONLY horror movies are genre. What?

    John Krasinski acting like he doesn’t know the entire world wants him to be MCU’s Mr. Fantastic.

    Could you please turn on the subtitle option of videos? It would be helpful for people who are not native speaker like me.

    • Anna Dewitt

      @DP/30: The Oral History Of Hollywood It is okey. Maybe I can improve my English more in this way 😆

      Thank you for listening. And I am sorry I can't offer every element. I've tried transcription services and they are more work than doing it oneself.

    • Anna Dewitt
      Anna Dewitt Year ago +3

      @DP/30: The Oral History Of Hollywood I was talking about automated subtitle, I thought channel don't allow to show automated subtitle. I didn't know that it is up to TVclip. Otherwise, adding subtitle is very time consuming and not necessary. Thank you for all of these good interviews😊

    • DP/30: The Oral History Of Hollywood
      DP/30: The Oral History Of Hollywood  Year ago +2

      The subtitle option is up... but automated closed captioning is up to TVclip. Some interviews get them and some don't. I could make transcripts of the interviews and place them on each interview... but time + money...

      A little maybe... but Mr. Poland sounds quite a bit more aggressive than Mr. Spielberg and has a lot sharper S pronunciation. :-)
