SCOTT TOBIAS EXPLAINS WHY THE DISSOLVE CHOSE THE FILM
Scott Tobias tweeted last night that the Milwaukee Film Festival screening of Blow Out, and the Dissolve panel that preceded it, went well. In an article posted Friday by OnMilwaukee's Matt Mueller, Tobias explained the origins of The Dissolve online journal, and why its staff chose Brian De Palma's Blow Out to present at the festival.
"I think ultimately we settled on the idea of going big, and Blow Out is big," Tobias told Mueller. "A lot of us love Brian De Palma, and I think it's his best film. And then I think we wanted something that was about the movies. And Blow Out is that as well. It checked a lot of boxes for us. Personally, I'm incredibly excited just to see it in 35mm. I just came back from the Toronto Film Festival, and I didn't see a single film on celluloid. Everything was digital. It'll be fun to see something projected in 35. I don't know when I'll ever have a chance to see that again."
