Cut To: Subjectivity, Time, and the Movies

Gary Ross

Everyone has a movie in his or her own head. It compresses time, recasts the roles, and re-edits the scenes until it all comes out "just right." Some dreams are private; others can be rented at the video store. Oscar-nominated screenwriter and director Gary Ross discusses subjectivity, time, and memory through the prism of his film Pleasantville and other movies. Pleasantville, his tour-de-force directorial debut, broke new ground for its visual effects. Ross also wrote the screenplays for the hit movies Big and Dave.
