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.

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.


One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
