For of us that know me, know I expend a lovely unusual start confronted breakfast sandwich each morning. It’s comprised of all of the issues I cherish: a nick of toasted sourdough, peanut butter, jam, Sriracha garlic chilli sizzling sauce, sometimes artichoke or spinach dip, kimchi, and peppered sunny facet up eggs. That may moreover sound depraved, nonetheless it certainly tastes beautiful (don’t knock it besides you are trying it). On this one sandwich, I earn all of the spectrum of flavours, from savoury, candy, and provoking to every now and then tacky.
This sandwich is a tasty metaphor for my first function, this may per likelihood maybe moreover try to hold all of the issues I cherish in movie, from completely different movie genres to modes of storytelling to sorts of characters. The movie will probably be wrapped in a narrative instructed regarding the earlier with a splash of rap musical / hip-hopera, sprinkled with unhealthy characters cherish gangsters and ghosts, spiced with youthful restlessness, and hidden in it’s core, some soul-warming Christmas-movie modern hope on existence inspiration trying to channel the spirit of Akira Kurosawa’s Ikiru or Frédéric Abet’s The Man Who Planted Timber.
