Every month on Full Disclosure, we select a filmmaker who is or would be celebrating their birthday, and use that as an excellent excuse to throw the spotlight on them and their career. Members of Team ScreenAnarchy seek out a film from the chosen director's canon that they have never seen, cross it off their list of shame, and share their thoughts on watching it for the very first time. June is dedicated to Tony Scott, a pioneer of fit-inducing visual bedlam who gifted us some of the most exciting action thrillers of the last quarter-century. He worked on numerous occasions with the likes of Denzel Washington and Tom Cruise, adapted one of Quentin Tarantino's most unashamedly entertaining screenplays and even turned Kiera Knightley into a gun-toting bounty hunter. Determined never to be overshadowed by older brother Ridley, Tony Scott left behind a significant and unmistakable body of damn entertaining work. 

Peter Martin, Jaime Grijalba Gomez, Patryk Czekaj, Christopher O'Keeffe, Ernesto Zelaya Miñano, Ard Vijn, Niels Matthijs, Jim Tudor, Eric Ortiz Garcia and James Dennis contributed to this story.

Have never seen any of these. And, I'm not ashamed of it, either. Gonna leave it that way.

How needlessly dismissive of you. Hardly worth the comment, don't you think?

ToryKJune 29, 2014 3:47 PM

Why even bother posting something like that? I've never seen anybody so proud of being an elitist. Not here, anyway.

Pa Kent Says MaybeJune 29, 2014 9:03 PM

Nope. Read the article to see if anything therein would convince me otherwise. Nothin' did. Thought I'd let you all know. 'Cause, after all, my opinion's at least as valid as yours would be.

Now, tell me something vital you think. Make it about Tony Scott.

Pa Kent Says MaybeJune 29, 2014 9:05 PM

Truly? Out of everything you've ever seen? On the whole internet?


I wanna thank my third grade teacher and all the also-rans who have helped me get to where I am today. There are too many to name. They know who they are.

Oh, and God. I wanna thank God. I hear the orchestra beginning to swell, so I'm just gonna go now.

Please, do. Oh, and read this part again before you go:

"Not here, anyway."
