Saving Private Ryan - Thoughts
Incidentally, we intentionally did not include Matt Damon who plays the actual Pvt. Ryan in our field training, as we did not want the Rangers to bond with him. They resent him in the story and we wanted to preserve that feeling. Warriors Inc. Cadre did training for Damon and other paratroopers in his unit later in the production while shooting on other locations was taking place.
- Laurence Olivier (maybe) on method acting. I think it can apply to director gimmicks as well.
And what the military trainer thinks it was his call to instill some gimmicky method-style 'real' animosity in the actors? He decides that does he? Director has nothing to do with it?
What a load of pugwash.
