Happy Friday Night
Hello all -
I’ll try to get the numbers up here at a reasonable hour on Saturday, but if not, chat here.
Today’s Sundance screenings included the very pleasant and soon to be very marketed Wordplay, the mediocre but Chiwetel Olijofor driven Kinky Boots, and the overrated mediocrity that is A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints.
The end of Revolution Studios is old, old news, so it’s hard for me to pretend that I didn’t announce it a year ago and notice that it was a lock the day that Patrick Goldstein wrote a love letter to Joe Roth’s artistic intentions. Is anyone actually surprised?
James Frey should never have lied about his process to Oprah… but the book is so great, do I really need to give a damn? It’s not like someone lied in the pages of the New York Times or something? (To give credit where credit is due, the NYT front page story today included a TV Review that was pretty reasonable.)
Ok… time for bed…
