The audience member’s question about the car crashes didn’t necessarily come out of nowhere (even if it wasn’t the proper venue to air such grievances). Anyone who’s seen the “Ferrari” trailer may remember a car crashing toward the climax, where it soars into the air and hits a post. Apparently, there are moments like that in the finished product, as evidenced by Dexerto’s review of “Ferrari,” which states, “Two of the pivotal car crash scenes in question have CGI that is so noticeable and badly utilized that the only reaction that is fitting to have is laughter.”
Those scenes are likely what the person was referencing, but to call a movie “cheesy” to the star’s face is obviously a bad look. Many people rose to Adam Driver’s defense, such as @kevinkunze__: “Good for Driver! I hate when people say comments or compliments during the Q&A instead of asking questions. It’s called Q&A for a reason dude.” X user @nekomancer42 hopes Driver’s bluntness starts a trend, “We need more responses like that to half-assed audience questions.”
For a Q&A, it’s probably best to focus on the craft of filmmaking that went into a particular project, especially when one has a chance to discuss a 2023 film bound to blow most people away. Any criticisms should be saved for the review later.
