Watching Cameron Crowe’s “Elizabethtown” this afternoon reminded me why I decided to go to film school in the first place. I so rarely find myself getting entirely absorbed in films anymore, when one comes along that takes me to the place that films are meant to take us to — outside of ourselves, yet inside of our heads — I am taken aback.

“Elizabethtown” is not a perfect film (if there is such a thing), but it struck a chord in me of such resonance that I imagine (nay, hope) I’ll be left faintly ringing for some time.

I want to make films that leave people ringing.
