Zac Efron is Every Bit as Great as You Hope

The interview has to wait until the week the movie opens, but I have to post this right now.

Zac Efron is one of the most gracious, considerate, and all-around classy performers I have ever interviewed. Stay tuned for the details.

    I want to agree with the lady above! I worked with Zac on ‘Me and Orson Welles’ and found him to be a very polite, focused and down to earth guy. I hope he has tons of success with the film and a long and satisfying career.

    Thanks so much, Mr. McEvoy! I am a fan of the book and was really happy to see it translated to screen so well. And it was a pleasure to meet Zac, Claire Danes, and Richard Linklater. I’m looking forward to posting the interview. I really appreciate your taking the time to write.

    I was at this interview with you (the one doing it for her campus newspaper) and I completely agree! I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed how awesome he was – I’m doing a feature-type piece on the Zac-specific part of the interview for my paper! (Namely what it’s like to interview someone you adore). Such a great interview and day. :)

How Do Movies Show Time Passing?
Someone once said that movies are "pieces of time." A few take place in "real time." Alfred Hitchcock's experiment, "Rope," unfolds in just the time it takes us to watch it, all in what appears to be one seamless shot. But others take place over days, weeks, years, even generations. Slavko Vorkap

Switched at Birth and the End of Life
I'm a big fan of ABC Family's Switched at Birth and have appreciated its complicated characters, honest and heartfelt relationships, and compelling storylines, as well as its unprecedented, in-depth portrayal of the deaf community.

Wish I Was Here
My intention was to review Zach Braff's new film without mentioning the controversy he stirred up in funding it via Kickstarter.  My view was that what mattered was the movie itself, and the kerfluffle over how it was all paid for was beside the point.  But it turns out that it is the point.  "Sc
