pretty sure Finchers blank check is in music videos and commercials that got him... Alien 3? i think it would be interesting for the #context for a discussion around how absolutely bananas music videos were in that era, and how this one group of commercial directors (gondry/spike jonze, etc) were becoming rockstars due to this weird mix of indie filmmaking and music video pop culture.

If it's a video, it's "Straight Up" or "Express Yourself" but it's not, it's Se7en, which collected $327 million on a $33 million budget.

there seems to be a fundamental misunderstanding of the blank check as a concept. seven, fight club and panic room all combine to GIVE fincher the blank check. the blank check movie is zodiac, a nearly 3-hour movie ostensibly about one of the world's most notorious serial killers but that is way more interested in a cartoonist's obsession than the actual crimes

The blank check vs. guarantor thing is tedious. And even if it wasn't, Fight Club wasn't much of a financial success, if at all. And even if those things weren't true, Zodiac's budget was dead average for 2007. And even if all that weren't true, the Hannibal Lecter and Saw franchises made financing any kind of movie you could plausibly market as being about serial killers a very safe bet circa 2005, 2006, or whenever Zodiac was greenlit.

the blank check thing is better stated as "commercially successful directors with a distinct personal style"

It’s just a dumb framework to talk about movies and crack dumb jokes.

Anyone worked up over the “blank check” aspect needs to relax.

except the concept about the podcast isn't individual movies, its filmographies.

griffin says filmographies every time he describes it.

so its about multiple films, not really a single one. i'd say that each filmography is usually driven by the massive success of one very successful movie, so we can describe the "blank check movie" as the one that drives the rest of the filmography.

really the theme of the series is "mainstream, modern directors who have directed a least a half dozen movies with a range of success" at this point

yeah, though i'd say originally the focus was more on like, the specifics of what these people do when they are given total creative control, and how interesting the results are. star wars obv, and shyamalan and iirc wachowskis they kinda went into this stuff more

but yeah i'm also not a stickler i just wanna hang with My Boys

the blank check movies are the passion projects, not the massive success that allows for the passion projects!
