At the end of each week, we pinpoint engaging conversations that took place over the past week on Twitter and highlight worthwhile messages from the indie film community. To be clear, there is no defined system for selecting these tweets. There’s no ranking system, no winners, no losers. It’s merely a very subjective way of saying that these tweets informed, amused, educated or intrigued us. Check ’em out, follow us on Twitter and then join the conversation.

Gordon Willis was an impeccable and daring artist. May we always view the world as if through his lens.

RIP, Gordon Willis, “prince of darkness.” We all know the Godfather. He started with “End of the Road,” film based on Barth novel.
