DIRECTOR - Philip Kaufman


  1. SirPant
  2. Anthony

He spent 8 months in the mid-1970s working on a script for a Star Trek movie. At this same time, his friend George Lucas was making the first Star Wars film. Due to the poor buzz surrounding Star Wars prior to its release, Paramount decided to pull the plug on Kaufman's Star Trek project, with one of the studio executives saying "there's no future in science fiction." His script, which centered on the character of Spock, was abandoned and Paramount went in another direction when they resumed production on the first Star Trek film following the success of Star Wars.

Rising Sun
A pretty good thriller that?s satisfyingly unpredictable. One of the better, East meets West dramas of the time.

Quills 2000,  R)
Quills
I think Quills works best as a tale of censorship rather than a biography or factual piece on the Marquis de Sade. I thought it was fantastic though, Geoffrey Rush finding the right balance perfectly in his performance. It's an age old moral tale told effectively and passionately, it's entertaining throughout and deserved the applause it received upon its release. I want to see more of the old Geoffrey Rush and less of the Pirates of the Caribbean Geoffrey Rush.
