The Rear View is a chance to take a glance back into film history as we, as filmmakers, drive forward into the future of cinema and television.

Each episode, host Matt Edwards speaks with a filmmaker to discuss a film that influenced them and to find out what it is about these older films that strike a cord within them. The films discussed will sometimes be critical darlings, blockbuster fan favorites, cult classics or that forgotten gem.

And with the recent surge in television series that rival any best picture winner in terms of quality,
don’t be surprised if those are discussed here as well.

    [Reel 117] First Blood w/ Gregory Veeser

    [Reel 117] First Blood w/ Gregory Veeser

    In this reel, development executive Gregory Veeser discusses the 1982 film First Blood. Starring Sylvester Stallone in his second career defining roll (the first being, of course, Rocky Balboa,) Brian Denehy and Richard Crenna. The film is based on the 1972 novel of the same name by David Morrell.

    Although not a perfect movie by most standards, Veeser likes to point to this film as one that uses the classic story structure elements of the pregnant moment and forcing your characters into a vapor lock, really really well. And if you in the earlier parts of crafting your career in film, you may as well look to this film to emulate, rather than more elevated and complex stories such as The Sixth Sense or a Tarantino film. Veeser puts it this way: it's better to learn to drive stick on a Honda Civic than on a Porsche 911.
