[Masters of Carpentry] Monthly Feature #13: The Thing (1982)

"This is just a film where everyone brought their A-game, everyone excelled, and everyone meshed together. You guys have brought up the realism, it's also a very stylish movie in the way that it's shot and composed and edited and lit. But it uses the stylish stuff to shoot things that are played very realistic, and it's that perfect mesh of, it's not a fully realistic movie, it's not a fully stylish movie, it's a harmonious fusion of the two. Which has always been one of my favorite things of Carpenter, everyone's very down-to-earth and real, but it's also very slick and clean."
