Principal photography for The Proposal has ended. We now begin editing. I don't need to mention this but... editing makes a movie. The cuts made dictate pacing, tension and mood.

THE FOLLOWING IS A TRANSCRIPT OF AN INTERVIEW WITH FILMMAKER ELI ROTH. THE VIEWS EXPRESSED IN THIS INTERVIEW ARE NOT NECESSARILY THE VIEWS OF THOSE AT CBP…BUT EVEN IF THEY ARE, IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER, DOES IT? I MEAN, WE CAN STILL BE FRIENDS, RIGHT?]
