Christian: "...kick your fuckin ass! I want you off the fucking set, you prick!" DP: "Christian, I'm sorry..." Christian: "No don't just be sorry, think for one fucking second. What the fuck, are you doing!? Are you professional or not?" DP: "Sir, yes I am." Christian: "Do I fucking walk around, and rip down your, no shut the fuck up Bruce, do I wa... no! No, don't shut me up! Am I gonna walk around and rip your fucking lights down? In the middle of a fucking scene? Then why the fuck are you just walking through, ah da da da da right through the background! What the fuck is it with you? What don't you fucking understand? You got any fucking idear about 'Hey, it's fucking distracting having somebody walking up behind Brice in the middle of the fucking scene'! Gimme a fucking answer! What don't you get about it!?" DP: "...I was looking at the light..." Christian: "Oh, GOOD for you, and how was it? I hope it was fucking good because it's useless now isn't it? Fuck's sake man, you're amateur... look Gene, you got fucking something to say to this prick?" Gene: "I didn't see it happen..." Christian: "Well somebody should be fucking watching him, and keeping an eye on him." Gene: "Fair enough..." Christian: "This is the second time that he doesn't give a fuck about what is going on in front of the camera. Alright? I'm trying to fucking do a seen here, and I'm going 'Why the fuck is Shane walking in there? What is he doing there?' Do you understand my mind is not in the scene if you're doing that?" DP: "I absolutely do, I know that..." Christian: "Stay off the fucking set man, for fuck's sake. Right, let's go again. No let's not take a fucking minute, let's go again! And let's not have YOU fucking walking in. Can I have Tom put this on please? You're unbelievable man. You're unfucking believable. Number of times you're strolling a-fucking-round in the background. I've never had a DP behave like this. Err, you don't fucking understand working with actors, that's what that is. THAT'S WHAT THAT IS MAN, I'm not asking, I'm telling you. You wouldn'ta done that otherwise." *inaudible* Christian: "I want to fucking kick your fucking ass, if you don't shut up for a second, alright? I'm gonna go, do you want me to fucking trash your lights? Do you want me to fucking trash them? Then why are you trashing my scene?" DP: "I'm not trying to trash..." Christian: "You are trashing my scene! You do it one more fucking time, and I ain't walking back on this set if you're still hired. I'm fucking serious, you're a nice guy. You're a nice guy, but that don't fucking cut it when you're bullshitting and fucking around like this on set! Yeah you might get it, he doesn't fucking get it. You might, HE DOES NOT GET IT." Gene: "I know, and good adjustments ok? For real, honestly, I get it. Just walk for 5 seconds..." Christian: "No I don't need any fucking walking, he needs to stop walking. I ain't the one walking! Let's get Tom and put this back on, let's go again. Seriously man, you and me, we're fuckin done professionally. Fuckin ass..."
The DP did something wrong during a take and Christian Bale takes him on like he does with his mom and sister
