"The Best of Everything" is a book of essays about the first decade of movie culture in this new century-- except that I don't know how to write books, so here it is in video form.
The Best of Everything Chapter One: Quantum of Solace from Steven Boone on Vimeo.
Chapter One is about being down and out in New York City while still foolishly pursuing movie love and the love of a woman out of reach...
Thanks to Matt Zoller Seitz, Jason Zinoman, Jennifer Anise and Kevin Harvey for helping me get this part "finished"*. (*There's sure to be different edits and tweaks in its future.)

You couldn't make "Pan's Labyrinth" now?
DEL TORO I think you could, in a way, but you would have to make the movie different, and smaller. And not only do I think you could make it smaller, but I plan to make movies like that again. The fact that there are no structures the way we knew them doesn’t mean that we need to quit. F___ that. This is the time to make these movies. When they are impossible to make, that’s the time to make them.
