Mike Nichols
« on: November 20, 2014, 04:59:27 pm »

Is dead. I didn't realize he also directed The Birdcage, which I also love, but The Graduate is one of my favorite movies of all time. I remember the first time I watched it. I instantly recognized that so many movies that I enjoyed were just attempts to capture the feeling of that movie-- the angst, the use of music, the visual style. Every use of the "Wes Anderson Effect" is really just imitating this scene. A giant.

You're gonna do it all for the grind

Yeah, that's pretty epic. That whole movie is pretty epic. You know you've done something good when you've done something so profound it becomes a hollywood trope. I'm talking about the final scene where Hoffman crashes the wedding. I saw that played out in 100 other movies and television shows before I ever saw The Graduate.
