I'm sure that there are other films I've watched that worked their way in, but I would say Heat and Nightcrawler are the two of my biggest influences.

[–]zzzzzacurry 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (3 children). It’s kinda nice to hear something so relatable from someone who’s putting a movie on showtime. I find it distracting when it's a mix of both - I guess that's just personal preference. I started writing the first draft in November 2016. Two other companies - Alkatraz and Action Filmz - came on board and gave us their location expertise and film equipment, respectively.

This answer is a goldmine and please don't apologise.. getting a film to screen itself is a success.

Another of my favorite films - and one we did consider during production - was Nightcrawler. And I just cued up 'Good Time' on my list on Netflix - can't wait to see that. The movie is slated to release in the US on Showtime in early December, and the rest of the world soon after that. [–]Miklonario 3 points4 points5 points 1 month ago (2 children).
