Film Courage: Today’s blockbusters are all the rage and I know there’s a lot of debate over if it’s actually good content. Do you feel that romance films are dwarfed by these action blockbusters?
Tosca Musk, Passionflix CoFounder, Director, Producer: I don’t actually…I mean there are not dwarfed by action blockbusters. The ones that do well (the action blockbusters) tend to have a romance in them. So I would consider them romances in many ways, even WONDER WOMAN had a romance in it. It just so happens that she was the lead and she was stronger in the relationship, so I don’t.
I think that in order for us to have great movies there’s generally a little bit of romance in them (personally, for me). My concern is more so the negative content that comes out. So much of our content that we’re watching right now has a negative spin on it. Everything is depressing, somebody did something wrong to you or hurt you and it has more of a negative side to it and I think that we need romance movies in order to bring back the positive. We need to have positive outlooks on relationships and people and look at people in a positive way, as opposed to all these negative movies. So my concern is more the negative movies than the action blockbusters. I love an action blockbuster.
Film Courage: Do you? Well I know…Xanadu…is that your favorite film growing up?
Tosca Musk: It was my favorite film…you know…when I watched it. When I was four. When it came to South Africa I think it was a few years after it was released here. And I loved Xanadu. Xanadu is a story of a muse, I mean a muse who helps an artist be as creative as he can and so that’s beautiful, that’s a beautiful love story. And she leaves Xanadu to be with him and it’s a beautiful love story…(Watch the video on Youtube here).
