Quote: Sylvester Stallone, his dog and the making of Rocky.

Whatever you think of Sly, you will think differently of him when you read this interesting article in Tickld. on the story of how Rocky, which Stallone wrote and produced, got made, and how Stallone stuck to his principles.

Great quote from Jim Jarmusch that neatly sums up The Art of Perseverance

I put ‘A film by’ as a protection of my rights, but I don’t really believe it. It’s important for me to have a final cut, and I do for every film. So I’m in the editing room every day, I’m the navigator of the ship, but I’m not the captain, I can’t do it without everyone’s equally valuable input. For me it’s phases where I’m very solitary, writing, and then I’m preparing, getting the money, and then I’m with the crew and on a ship and it’s amazing and exhausting and exhilarating, and then I’m alone with the editor again … I’ve said it before, it’s like seduction, wild sex, and then pregnancy in the editing room. That’s how it feels for me

Jim Jarmusch, The Guardian, February 2014
