"Yeah, listen Alejandra, we love this idea for a movie where the first shot is a beat-to-s**t Michael Keaton in his underwear levitating, and it's all one take. But this is just ...

We made several suggestions to you about what kind of edits we think would help tell the story, since maybe you just don't know about editing?

'POW!' comic book flashes in between each take, which I understand you rudely rejected? He's got some great ideas!"
