    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.

“It’s easy to forget when you’re reading a critic every single week or multiple times a week, that most of us who do this job, and have been doing it for a long time, understand that this is basically a parasitic profession. I don’t mean in the sense that we’re evil bloodsucking creatures, but we couldn’t exist if we didn’t have something to analyze. And I’m always conscious of that. So whether I like or don’t like a particular thing you do, my point of view is always that of an appreciator. I just like to be in the world that you create.”

“Louis C.K. is a genius. But every genius breeds a bunch of fucking idiots. These people say, “I can do that.” But they can’t, they just think they can. I don’t understand all these comedy shows that forget about being comedies. It’s absurd. There shouldn’t even be a prevailing style of comedy, anyways. People should be individuals.”
