Tony Zhou really lets filmmakers have it, saying they are lazy and not thinking creatively about what is possible in movies. He spruiks Edgar Wright as the only current filmmaker doing it right - finding new ways to do simple mundane things, getting a laugh just through staging. He says cinema is a matter of what's in the frame and what's not in the frame, and he gives us 9 examples of how to play with it. Great learning here.
