‘Glass Onion’ Rian Johnson & ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Joseph Kosinski | Directors on Directors

  • Published on Dec 19, 2022 veröffentlicht
  • Joseph Kosinski and Rian Johnson talk about working with their A-list stars Tom Cruise, Kate Hudson, Daniel Craig and the rest of the ‘Glass Onion’ cast - including that Val Kilmer scene in ‘Top Gun: Maverick,’ the complex logistics of crafting a crowd-pleasing blockbuster, and their shared perspective on the so-called rivalry between theaters and streaming.

    This was the best one by far of any of the conversations. They just got down to asking the technical questions we all want to know, instead of generic praising and inspirational talks. I often find these frustrating because filmmakers seem to not want to talk about how they work. So refreshing to see 2 talents wax lyrical about everything so openly.

      I have the same experience with this 1on1, very engaging, both directors in their prime and experiencing great success. Great interaction and exchange of ideas, styles and the approach in cinematic vision.

    “The movie’s perfect until you have to show it to people.“ You can hear the pain in Rian’s voice.

      He doesn't have a strong sense of humour..not a critique of him per se but he's a technical director. I liked his sf film.

    These two directed 2 of the best films of the year so congratulations to both but I find Rian Johnson's craftmanship even more impressive. The sense theatricality he injected in his direction as well as the plotting motivated by the characters is fascinating. I applaud Jo Kosinski's sense of clarity in terms of scale for the action sequences but mostly just how collaborative of an effort Top Gun had to be.

    Two of the best directors out in the game right now. Love both of their works, Oblivion was a phenomenal original story and movie experience. And Brick is an all time favorite movie of mine that i go back to countless times.

      "Most depressing thing ever"
      Just because I don't pretend to like a film?
      Come on.
      Anyone with taste or guts knows that "Glass Onion" (despite the Netflix machine supporting it for months) did not deserve its nomination and that the film stole it from actually deserving contenders.

      Except "Glass Onion" was terrible, too.

    I'm really happy that Joseph Kosinski has continued to grow in the emotional department as a filmmaker. Tron: Legacy and Oblivion had amazing style and atmosphere to it, but was lacking in the emotional department - Tron: Legacy more-so than Oblivion. I really enjoyed both movies, though, and gushed over how beautiful they looked, how well done the action scenes were, and how awesome the soundtracks were, coming from Daft Punk and M83.
    Then he did Only The Brave, an emotional wallop with a more subdued style. With Top Gun: Maverick, he combined those two elements together perfectly.

    • Fight Fight

      You should really watch Only the Brave. It's the movie Kosinski did with Teller and Connoly. It's an amazing movie and really delves deep into the emotional aspect of the story.

  • Teresa Luz

    I could listen to them talk for hours. I saw Top Gun Maverick 5x in the movie theater. It was an amazing experience. I went with my mom the first time and then went by myself the other 4 times. And yes, I went back for the emotions. I know nothing about jets but I've loved Pete Maverick Mitchell since I saw the first Top Gun. I'm invested in his life and seeing him happy in the end was very satisfying.

    • eyespy3001
      eyespy3001 2 months ago

      You need to see more movies, man.
      Top Gun was one step above mediocre in terms of plot and story. The dramatic elements were borderline corny, and the last half was incredibly predictable (especially because it was almost a shot for shot retelling of the Death Star trench run from Star Wars, complete with -Han Solo- Hangman swooping in to save the day).
      I have yet to see Glass Onion. However, I can tell you that there was at least one movie that came out this year that trumps all these movies, and that was Everything, Everywhere, All at Once. _That_ movie was a masterpiece. It had incredible action that served the story. It had family drama. It had amazing performances from each and every cast member. It had insane visuals. It made you laugh, cry, and cheer. Top Gun made me yawn.

    Love reminding people that Rian Johnson directed Ozymandias, the single greatest episode of Breaking Bad and one of the finest hours of television ever crafted. He also edited an extremely underrated horror drama called May. This man has been doing great work for years and it's great he's finally being recognized for it.
    (Can't wait for the absurd replies to this)

    • Hartigan 04

      Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Knives out in cinema a lot when it came out but if you think about it's logic for more than a couple of seconds, you can't un-see how illogical it is. It's flashy cinema and the acting is great at times. Johnson has some good skills. I liked his eye for little details and aesthetics but he isn't a good writer and some of his directions are not that great to put it mildly. Many of the main plot points are ridiculous and/or illogical.
      Unfortunately Glass Onion is a big step down from Knives out and frankly it felt like a waste of time to me. Again, so many logic gaps. The mystery was never a mystery really, this whole Miles is just dumb thing feels exactly like that, dumb! it's a cheap cop out and not that smart or interesting (Blanc has many moments as well where he acts like he's a moron - I found that very annoying). I also never really cared about any of the characters because you don't really get to know them in any meaningful way.

    I just want to say that Oblivion is one of the most beloved sci-fi movies ever to come from Tom Cruise, if you go to different clips and video reviews on Clip-Share, it's near unanimous praise from commenters / fans. I really hope that the success of Top Gun 2 leads to another Oblivion movie. Or even a trilogy, a prequel, and a wrap up. I love that universe. I love the way the movie looks, I love the score and of course Tom Cruise is pretty much excellent in everything he does. 🙏🏾

      For all of Johnson's excess plotting, the progress of the main story runs along familiar lines.
      While who-does-what-to-who-and-why is baffling to begin with (like a magician moving onto a further allusions in order to obfuscate the obviousness of their first trick), I just don't think that the elements that lead up to the ending are subtly or effectively dealt to us.
      In particular, the second act goes on and on.

      @dhruvurs9890 the prequel trilogy is awful. They've got interesting ideas. But the films are bloated, often weirdly opaque, the acting is wooden (George Lucas isn't a great writer of dialogue), and the cgi really is over used. They aren't good movies.
      The sequel trilogy was ruined by poor planning, corporate meddling and a lack of clear vision. Disney was purely reactive. Just doing things based off fan response which is not a good way to write a cohesive story.

      @Rickster Drummer I agree, hes showed both talent and knowledge. One can only speculate why it wasn't a good match. Some things are just personal. Or maybe just studio shenanigans.

      I mean, I hated TLJ as much as the next guy, but that was his writing. He’s a fantastic director! 💪

    Star Wars fan bros are like the Siths - they just can’t let it go. My favourite DoD instalment yet. Ryan Johnson is always a good watch.

      @Noelle Nn The motivation for your line of reasoning are also questionable. They reek of appeal to emotion to validate your subjective opinion. The auto-correct is the least of your problems. But don't fret, many agree Johnson is a talented director/witter with ups and downs like everyone.

      I know that RIAN has a smirking, obnoxiousness self-importance that makes some people believe that the film was so damn terrific, but he really has garbage instincts.
      He has a passive-aggressive, sweaty, desperate-to-please theater kid energy. Not only does he want to entertain you but he wants you to be painfully aware of how much EFFORT he puts into entertaining you.
      His films reek of self-indulgence.

    Borrowed from another commenter "his decisions on that movie were like the iceberg that sank the Titanic. Feel how you want about the movie on its own, but his decision to throw away everything the previous movie set up, and then end his movie- the middle part of a trilogy in a connected 9-movie saga- as if it were a stand alone film, without setting anything up for the final movie, was possibly THEE worst decision in modern movie history."

      @cmiller7299 the fact that you want a came out of nowhere personalitless sack of cgi as the main villian tells me enough.

      @An enemy stand Just that fact you think Kylo Ren was acceptable as a main villain is enough to not take you seriously on anything. Snoke was the intended villain and Rian threw him away. The Last Jedi was terrible from a narrative standpoint, and it's Star Wars/Rian fanboys who can't admit that to themselves.

    Rian and John said it right. Stop thinking about big screen or Netflix. Just make a good movie and the people will come

    If Rian has full control of his own ideas and own IP he is great. When he follows peoples scripts and directs he is fine (BB). When he directs and writes for another IP he is absolutely garbage. This is the guy that divided the greatest IP ever . Unreal lol

      He made a bad movie. Get over it. Most good directors have at least one black sheep in their filmography. SW fans are the worst.

      @scottbarkley496 I mean am I wrong though. I like the movie but tell me one thing it does narratively that isn't a wellworn trope.

      It's very visual impressive and narratively uncreative.
