Topic - Robert Zemeckis
Director Robert Zemeckis is literally going back into the past for his next project - a stage musical of "Back to the Future."
If "Flight" weren't so exceptionally crafted and acted, this tale of self-destruction and eventual redemption might feel like the sort of feel-good fare you'd see on the Lifetime Movie Network, or even a 12-step-program promotion.
You might think that Robert Zemeckis, having devoted himself to motion-capture animation for the last 12 years, would be thrilled to return to the unpredictability of live-action filmmaking — those moments of serendipity when the elements align for something surprising. You would be wrong.

Computer animation has a problem: When it gets too realistic, it starts creeping people out.
"If it's just about somebody with chemical dependency, it lets everybody off the hook," Mr. Zemeckis said. "It's not relatable. But the fact that everybody — if you really have the courage to be honest with yourself — is flawed, that's a universal theme. That's what I was going for."
Asked if he consulted such films in making "Flight," Mr. Zemeckis replied, "Only in what not to do."
