Brian Helgeland: I’m Not a Writer, I’m a Filmmaker

By Cameron Cubbison · November 3, 2014

Sit down with Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River) and listen to him go into detail about what it means to be a genuine writer and how to stay true to your form. Helgeland talks about what it was like winning an Oscar and a Razzie within the same weekend, and how being uncompromising is vital to being a good writer. He capitalizes on the mantra of "if you really want to make a great film, you have to take the risk that you are going to make a really bad film."
