nad 🎀’s review published on Letterboxd:
i caught the trailer for Spiral earlier this week, got pretty excited and decided to rewatch the series. it’s been a while. if you can, please give the behind-the-scenes/making-of a try. not only insane but also motivational and inspiring af.
Leigh and James were just kinda winging it when they sent their short to LA and got thrown headfirst into business by the producers who recognized their talent. Wan making up shots on the spot because he had virtually no time to prepare is hilarious to watch. dude even built the reverse bear trap and some other stuff himself?? also the editing has always bothered me and it turns out the quick cuts are mostly to cover up how cheap the whole production was 😭😂
