Ford V Ferrari director believes too much research is never good


    Director James Mangold has a good run when it comes to adapting real stories for the screen. The filmmaker has been involved in both Girl, Interrupted and the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line as well as the recently released racing game Ford V Ferrari

    Mangold is not as much a fan of research as you might expect. In fact, he thinks too much research can be a bad thing.

    "A lot of research can really get in the way.There can be as many versions of Lee Iacocca as you can find books.Speaking like I've seen a director of actors who have been overly researched "The character plays in the service of history." They can not carry more than they have that every day in their lives. "

    His reasoning, to reject too much research, seems to benefit the actors as he The view is that they are playing a character rather than just trying to imitate the real figure. James Mangold goes on to say that.

    "When I did Walk the Line Joaquin Phoenix has one thing he has always asked me to say, he would come up every day and say that thing, say that Ding, and I'd say you're not Johnny Cash, it was like relief from the pressure, as if he had to do a kind of thesis that is not an actor's job, it's actually much easier to try, essences, and notions of it You can find out a lot about who a person is and what she does.…41&Itemid=32 You can find out a lot about who this person is and what she does. and the script shows what she does kind of basic. "

    Mangold's process seems to be that the script brings the real character to life rather than hours and hours of potentially stunning research, with Joaquin Phoenix as a fan of this cit is] Biopic-making method .

    Mangold may not have studied much, but some critics pointed out that he had taken some liberties, including the decisive finale of the film, Ford vs. Ferrari is historically correct in many ways ,
