Joe Hutshing

Editor

Popcorn and politics needn’t be mutually exclusive, at least as far as Hutshing sees it. He got his start with Oliver Stone on “Born on the Fourth of July” and “JFK.” After five films with the helmer, Hutshing branched out into more escapist territory, cutting Cameron Crowe’s “Jerry Maguire” and “Almost Famous,” among others.

This year, Hutshing returned to the arena of politically charged cinema, editing “Lions for Lambs.” But contrary to his work with Stone, the Robert Redford pic called for a more unobtrusive editing style. “It’s more about getting people to think about what’s going on in the world than some artistic stylized technique,” Hutshing explains.

The film alternates between three confrontations driven by dialogue. “I was very concerned with that. You want to keep people riveted,” says Hutshing, who studied “All the President’s Men,” grilling Redford about that film. He even worked with legendary editor Walter Murch, cross-cutting between threads and moving forward flashbacks to the soldier characters.
