Seconded. About the time of TWINE I was pretty sure that was the direction (no pun intended) they were going in, but sadly it was not.
Would Vic Armstrong have been able to handle the drama scenes? He's obviously great at filming stunt scenes, but emotional scenes with actors sitting down is something else.
Hiring someone in-house with no experience as a first unit director worked fine in OHMSS, so I can't claime it could have worked. Another question is how many of the bad desicions in DAD came from the director and what was the producers or the scriptwriters' fault.
Oh my! Oh my! Oh my! I think there should be a mention of a deity in there somewhere? .... but OH MY! :x
