Today at IFP Market: The Reeler Goes Down in Flames

I am not sure how many of you have attained the high honor of attending this year’s IFP Market, but if you happen to be at the Puck Building today between 3:15-4:15, stop in for a panel discussion addressing the benefits of online social networking for filmmakers. I will be there winging it alongside AOL’s Karina Longworth, iKlipz’s David Dinerstein, Shooting People’s Ingrid Kopp and moderator Brian Brooks of indieWIRE. I do not know why they asked me to join them; I have a feeling it’s a set-up, perhaps for an assassination attempt or for Karina to pull my chair out from under me as I sit down. Anything is possible with the exception of me having a clue about this stuff, so join us and heckle away. You paid for it.

“I really want to see The Irishman. I’ve heard it’s big brother Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece. But I really can’t find the time. The promotion schedule is so tight, there’s no opportunity to see a three and a half-hour movie. But I really want to see it. In 2017, right before Okja’s New York premiere, I had the chance to go to Scorsese’s office, which is in the DGA building. There’s a lovely screening room there, too, with film prints that he’s collected. I talked to him for about an hour. There’s no movie he hasn’t seen, even Korean films. We talked about what he’s seen and his past work. It was a glorious day. I’ve loved his work since I was in college. Who doesn’t? Anyone involved with movies must feel the same way.”

“But okay, I promise you now that if I ever retire again, I’m going to ensure that I can’t walk it back. I’ll post a series of the most disgusting, offensive, outrageous statements you can ever imagine. That way it will be impossible for me to ever be employed again. No one is going to take my calls. No one is going to want to be seen with me. Oh, it will be scorched earth. I will have torched everything. I’m going to flame out in the most legendary fashion.”
