I am so proud of the team that created the magnificent doc, The Crash Reel. Pedro Kos, the brilliant and tireless editor; Lucy Walker, the inspired and inspiring filmmaker who turned out yet another stunningly emotional and exquisitely crafted film; and the subject of the film, Kevin Pearce, who together with his off-the-charts loving family, opened their home and intimate lives for us to experience, while Kevin struggled to survive the traumatic brain injury he sustained while training for Olympic snowboarding. My prediction: look for The Crash Reel at the Oscars 2014. (at Regal LA LIVE Stadium 14)
The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise.
