It’s 1995, the line weaves around the block of Uptown Cinema. An eighteen year old boy from Bulgaria has just immigrated to America. Since a child the boy fostered one dream - to make movies. The film the boy is there to see is Casino which, released on November 22nd that year. The boy makes his way to sit in the back row to get a better view of the audience and the screen - as if his eyes are a wide angle lens. A lens of choice for most of his own films years later.
