    So, alright suppose the movie really is bad. But don’t you feel it’s a little unfair to label someone who only ever directed one film as “not that kind of director”?

    THE FOX. Still a MUST-SEE for Megan, Murray and Rourke.

    Dug the fortuitous Scorsese red-light on Poland’s face at 1:50!

    I think this is going to live on as some kind of bizarro world terrible version of Lost Highway once it ends up on cable.

    Dude, I know you are busy but you can’t neglect the blog like this all weekend. If you are not going to post BO reports or even add a BYOB, then let your administrator do it. If not, then changing everything right before TIFF was a bad freaking idea.

    Saw it at TIFF. It was bad. Wild Orchid level bad. LexG, you might like it though since Megan is pretty hot in it, but she needs an acting coach…

    All I needed to hear!

    I think some people are going to love it and some people are going to hate it. It’s more a film for film school students I think.

    I’ve read the script. I almost consulted on the film. They had budget problems before shooting started and apparently it came through. Actually, the script was pretty bad too when I read it. I knew it would be a flop.

“To me, there was a deep confusion that still persists,” Morris told the crowd, “and I don’t know what you can do to disabuse people of this notion. I suppose you could hit them in the head with a large piece of lumber, but I’m not sure that would do the trick. It’s a simple rule: Style doesn’t guarantee truth. Truth is something far more elusive. Truth is a quest; you pursue truth. You go after it, you try to uncover it, because we all know that we live in a sea of falsehood. I mean, there shouldn’t be any tool that should be unavailable to you in the pursuit of truth.”

“I hang out with highbrow people and I have on certain occasions earned my living with non-highbrow people. I don’t know what I am. A highbrow wannabe? I’m a groupie of intellectuals. I try to hang around them but maybe I am a clown who enjoys the company of intellectuals. Or maybe I’m a semi-intellectual who likes to hang out with clowns.”
