Washington Post film critic Desson Thomson talks filmmaking and the art of the cinema on Behind The Screen, every other Monday at 12:30 p.m. ET. Ever wondered to know what the director had in mind when making a particular film? Or why the producer altered the original screenplay? Why was an actor or actress cast over another? Howe has answers to these and other questions about filmmaking. You can e-mail him at thompsond@washpost.com. Discussion archive to May 2003
