Max Joseph x Vero

Part TED-talk, part “Don Quixote”, Max Joseph’s compelling new film “Dicks” asks whether you need to be a ‘dick’ (or an asshole, tyrant or Machiavellian douche) in order to be a great leader - or in Max’s case, a great film director.

Touching on urgent themes of fascism, narcissism, global politics, and gender equality, Max reflects on his own experiences writing and directing a studio movie (We Are Your Friends) and features interviews with filmmakers Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth), Peter Berg (Deepwater Horizon, Patriots Day), John Hamburg (Meet the Parents, I Love You, Man) and leading writers and thinkers on the sometimes related subjects of leadership, creativity and assholes.
