So yes, Alita: Battle Angel, you're working with not one, but two great directors, James Cameron and Robert Rodriquez, who was the-
I can tell you a few others.
Sure, were there other people involved with that, yeah, yeah?
Who was the first person to talk to you and ask you to be involved with that?
It was Robert first, and then James, but very close to each other.
Did they have a different kind of energy the two of them, what were sort of their-
Completely styles, that's why they work so well together.
James is the In a way of that genre.
And Robert was a very nitty gritty hands on not that James isn't.
But does everything himself.
Low budget, throws them out really fast.
It's a different quality.
But that's what James was after.
It's not that he had no other ideas.
That's what he wanted for that movie.
Okay, and with so with that kind of that sort of Guerilla filmmaking approach that Robert has we are you still you still able to kind of have that that kind of energy in a movie that's has so kind of so much kind of effects and did have a pre-planned or was there a kind of a sort of a fast moving?.
Kind of spirited.
The best way to describe this is that there, on that set, I don't think there were ever, ever less than 300 people present.
I think improvising with 300 people
You could you'd be hard pressed to avoid an anarchy.
It's too, too if you pursue a thought you better organize and plan if you catch my drift.
When there's not much you've got to kind of plan everything.
Does that mean that you're kind of, are you still sort of drawing on the same kind of acting techniques that you learned when you were training?
Or have you kind of had to evolve the approaches that you use to actually play the character?
Look at acting techniques, and I heard it out of the mouth Of the grandmaster himself.
I was present when Lee Strasberg said teaching acting's just another way of making money.
Okay, that much for acting techniques.
[LAUGH] Fair enough.
Yeah, you employ what's necessary, not what fits your technique.
For example, on a movie like that, 300 people present or more,
And he said, sorry, I don't feel it, or my guru said I need to do this exercise first, and [INAUDIBLE] .It'll cost a few thousand dollars, you know?
Not that it might not be worth it, but the question is, is it worth to the others as well?
And for the whole.
Okay, I want yo ask you as well, so it's an action movie but it's also a movie about inequality and haves and have nots.
Is that kind of a political sub text that you're interested in and you quite [UNKNOWN].
I should say so.
Definitely, yeah, it's our world.
It just looks like City and Salem, especially in Western culture, what we are kind of indoctrinated with, that a superior power is above.
And even in old movies, watch it, very often it happens that when they talk about love Love comes from above but so does injustice.
