Before it is possible to intelligently discuss the origin of the Craft, it is necessary, therefore, to establish the existence of these two separate yet interdependent orders, the one visible and the other invisible. The visible society is a splendid camaraderie of "free and accepted" men enjoined to devote themselves to ethical, educational, fraternal, patriotic, and humanitarian concerns.
David Chase explains how he created the excruciating tension of the last scene. What he won't say is what happened at the end. By James Greenberg Was Tony Soprano's quiet meal with his family in a local ice cream parlor his last supper?
Whether or not he was whacked gangland style in the The craft night essay in America" finale of The Sopranos is not a question that concerns David Chase, creator of the series and director of the last episode. Chase is far more interested in larger philosophical issues about the choices we make in life that lead us to that point, and enjoying the good times, fleeting though they may be.
After orchestrating the murder of a rival gang boss and dodging a bullet yet again, Tony James Gandolfini is breathing, if not easier, with at least a sense of relief as he meets his wife Carmela Edie Falco and kids Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Robert Iler at Holsten's for "the best onion rings in the state" and flips through the jukebox.
It's almost a Norman Rockwell scene with a group of Cub Scouts, young lovers, football hero murals, and locals enjoying the warm and homey atmosphere. Chase says time itself is the raw material of the scene as the suspense builds with pinpoint editing while Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" propels the action to its climax—a heart-stopping cut to black.
See more Shots to Remember Chase was after the dreamy, chilling feeling he admired at the end of Stanley Kubrick's A Space Odyssey in which time expands and contracts as life and death merge into one. And there, as in the concluding instant of The Sopranos, who knows what really happens. That's all I can say.
He would get to the place and he would look and see where he was going. He had a conversation with his sister that went like this.
And then he later had a conversation with Junior that went like this. I had him walk into his own POV every time. And I shortened the POV every time. So that by the time he got to Holsten's, he wasn't even walking toward it anymore.
He came in, he saw himself sitting at the table, and the next thing you knew he was at the table. I had a vision in my head when I wrote it, but when you move into a place you have to figure out how to shoot in that location.
We wanted to be in the middle of the room obviously, so we could be on either side of the booth. We didn't want to be shooting against a blank wall on one side of the booth; we wanted it to be in the middle to give it depth all around.
But there was a radiator unit in the only place where we would really have the room, so we had to build a booth over that radiator unit. It was very difficult. And we did not have much room to dolly or track around.
So a lot of what we did in this scene came about after going to Holsten's. The vision has to coalesce with the real physical location. No matter what song we picked, I wanted it to be a song that would have been from Tony's high school years, or his youth.
That's what he would have played. When I wrote it, there were three songs in contention for this last song, and 'Don't Stop Believin'' was the one that seemed to work the best.
I think it's a really good rock 'n' roll song. The music is very important to me in terms of the timing of the scene, the rhythm of the scene. The song dictates part of the pace. And having certain lyrics of the song, and certain instrumental flourishes happen in certain places, dictates what the cuts will be.
I directed the scene to fit the song. The singing gets more and more strident and more invested as the song goes along.Grace said it was surreal to be meeting up with Ansari, a successful comedian and major celebrity, and she was “excited” for their date.
