This month, we chat with our amazing Sales Manager for Six Branches, and the former MOTION PICTURE CLUB President, David Youngstein! What are some of his favorite TWC and non-TWC films? Find out below!
How long have you worked for The Weinstein Company?
I have worked at The Weinstein Company since Jan ’08, but I’ve worked for the film industry for 26 years in all.
What do you love about the movie industry?
I love being involved in the industry, as my Dad was before me, and I really like the “love/hate” relationship between Exhibition/Distribution. It has always been very interesting and challenging.
What is your favorite TWC film?
Inglourious Basterds – great production, Brad Pitt was tremendous!
What is your favorite scene in said film?
The cocktail party when Brad Pitt says “bonjourno” – it is a very, very funny scene with his accent. I love that the second he speaks, his cover is blown.
What is your favorite non-TWC film?
What is your favorite scene in ‘The Godfather’?
The fish delivered in newspaper – “Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes.” It is an extremely chilling scene, showing how sinister mobs can be.
If you could be cast in a re-make of any film, which would it be?
“The Natural” – I love baseball, and I would want to hit one out of any ballpark!
