‘Listen Up Philip’ Director Alex Ross Perry on Sticking to the Script

Alex Ross Perry talks to Flavorwire about his acclaimed new film Listen Up, Philip.

He says of his carefully planned-out movie, “The structure, that stuff you’re picking up on, that’s all there. In the script. The jumping around in time. The jumping back for a second of a flashback. You know: retelling one thing in the film from another character’s perspective. That was a part of the script. And there really weren’t a lot editing decisions made that weren’t already part of the script. We never had a need to salvage the material or get crazy and creative. I think it’s a testament to the fact that everyone brought their own endgame to it.”
