Remember when we were younger and simply enjoyed the show! In hindsight, I actually realize dynamics of the film(s) affected me, although I wasn’t thoroughly conscience of it at the time. The broadcast premiere of “West Side Story” was an event! I can still recall the excitement in my house, of it airing for the first time, over the course of two nights.
At the age of 22, Luc Besson released his first short film “L’avant dernier,” (translation: Next to Last) in which he also appeared. It starred Jean Reno, an actor that he would work with repeatedly in future films. Besson’s new film “Lucy” starring Scarlet Johansen hits theaters across the country this week, and it’s nowhere near ‘next to last’, on Luc’s list of movies.
