Tom and Bryan Singer spoke to a large crowd last night, at the discussion following the 92nd Street Y’s Reel Pieces premiere of ‘Valkyrie’ for critics.  The film was exceptionally well received!  Read some of  the highlights of the conversation below:{nl}Tom on his religion and relating it to Valkyrie: {nl}{nl}”I’ve studied many, many religions and I think the way that I was raised … I was always raised to have an open mind and to be able to think for myself and for me looking at this society where of course under that tyranny, where you must … that’s why [Hitler's oath] … I read the oath. It was so bizarre to me to just blindly swear to follow one person and, where … I’m raised and I believe to question life and authority and find out what is true for you. And it took a bit, a lot of discussion, we were going to back and forth, to really grasp what that must’ve been like, what that society must’ve been like, and I’m glad that we have it at the opening of the film because it kind of puts into perspective what was drilled in, part of the inculcation of ‘Don’t think for yourself, just follow blindly these edicts.’ And I think what’s interesting to me is that this was a man who, by all accounts, did have the ability to rise above that, and did have the ability to think for himself and see a level of humanity and society and democracy, that I just found very compelling.”{nl}{nl}Bryan Singer on displaying swastikas while shooting in Germany: {nl}”The Germans have a history of making films about this history, so it’s not completely unusual for Berliners to see swastikas hung from buildings … maybe not as many as we hung.”{nl}{nl}Tom answering a question from the audience (“Was it necessary for Goose to die for Maverick to achieve his full rite of passage?”): {nl}{nl}”Goose was a friend of mine … but he had to go.”{nl}
