Max Joseph: DICKS: Do you need to be one to be a successful leader?

“A writer needs a pen, an artist needs a brush, but a filmmaker needs an army.”
― Orson Welles

Max Joseph, a film maker from New York City, starts out to investigate what makes good director and ends up finding out what makes a good leader. In the era of crazy president 45, Donald Trump, this is a pertinent question. All roads lead to Rome, but it turns out you don't have to be a dick about it.

Some of the people interviewed:
  • David Guggenheim
    American director, screenwriter, producer, and novelist
  • Michael Maccoby
    Psychoanalyst and anthropologist
  • Aaron James
    Associate professor of philosophy and author of Assholes: A Theory
  • Randall Poster
    American music supervisor and long-term Wes Anderson collaborator. He has worked on The Wolf of Wall Street, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Vinyl  and Skyfall.
  • Karyn Kasama
    American independent film director (interesting perspective from a woman in a male-dominated field)
  • John Hamburg
    American screenwriter, film director and producer
  • Adam Grant
    American author and youngest tenured professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania
  • Peter Berg
    American director, actor, producer, and writer of film, television, and music videos

This is a question that has been eating away at me for a long time, so I decided to make a movie about it.

I grew up in NYC, live in LA, and make movies all over the world. I was the other guy in the Nike Make It Count video and am currently the other guy on MTV's Catfish. I cannot go through an airport without eating a Cinnabon.
