Noah Baumbach had never seen a script before he wrote one

Noah Baumbach recently spoke about his filmmaking process as part of BAFTA’s Screenwriters’ Lecture Series and there were a lot of interesting nuggets to take away from the talk.

All my *spoiler-heavy* thoughts about Avengers: Endgame

Last week I published a spoiler-free review of Avengers: Endgame because that was the decent thing to do. But I struggled to avoid the spoilers because there are so many of them throughout the film and I had so many things I wanted to talk about but couldn’t!
