urban legend: final cut with joey lawrence??? or is this something else.
So i just watched this, and I thought it was really good, but could someone explain the final, oh, one minute to me? Where the guy who killed him is wearing that locket? I assumed he was the kid from his childhood but I'm trying to piece it together.
The Final Cut with Robin Williams.Originally Posted by niceguyeddie
I don't remember the significance of the locket, butSpoilers:
the guy who killed him was a former cutter who'd rejected the practice. He killed Robin because Robin was a cutter who had the implant, something forbidden. Something about privacy issues. By killing Williams, he had access to everything he'd ever seen in his life, some of which contained information that would discredit the profession, and by making a cut of Robin's life could presumably use it to end the practice, or at least use the cut released to the public against them as a propaganda tool.
It was a pretty good film, I thought. Could've been more interesting and a tighter story, but worth seeing.
A friend of mine from college wrote and directed this.
It's actually a crazy story how it all came to be.
Long story short, he wrote the script, and got into a screenwriting workshop in France. Went there, everyone fell all over the script, saying "Producer's'll be fighting over it." Then he came home, and nothing happened. His wife told him he could take 1 year, to the day, to write, but then he had to get a job. So, he spent 1 year, to the day, writing. On the last day, the day he was going to wake up and start looking for a job, his phone rings, and it's the producer of the movie, saying that he has a deal in place, and wants to start in the next few weeks, and would he like to also direct?Originally Posted by B-Rose
He went from living on Ramen and struggling to survive to living his dream AND making awesome money, in literally 24 hours.
That's the short version.
I don't think it ever got a full release. The studio had some sort of deal with AMC Theaters to screen it in digital projection. It might've gotten a relase beyond that, tho. I haven't talked to the guy in years, so I don't really know.Originally Posted by Travis M. Bierwagen
