    Fun chat. Hope Don listens.

  2. Halek says:

    It’s a terrific film that stands on its own merits. Once the handwringing by loyalists of the Swedish film dies down, the box office disappointment recedes in the past, and Let Me In is on DVD/Blu-ray, it will be more widely appreciated and regarded as a gem in its own right.

    “i asked for questions from the readers, but i didn’t find any of them that interesting.”

    ok.

    And then DP TOTALLY STOLE ONE OF MY SUGGESTIONS by asking if he liked Bay-action vs. intimate.

    I demand a cut of the profits.

  5. David Poland says:

    I will send you your cut of every dime I make on this, Foamy.

“As a celebrity/star I am not an individual—I am a spectacular representation of a living human being, the opposite of an individual. The enemy of the individual, in myself as well as in others. The celebrity/star is the object of identification, with the shallow seeming life that has to compensate for the fragmented productive specializations which are actually lived. The requirements to being a star/celebrity are namely, you must become an enslaved body. Just flesh—a commodity, and renounce all autonomous qualities in order to identify with the general law of obedience to the course of things. The star is a byproduct of the machine age, a relic of modernist ideals. It’s outmoded.”
~ Shia LaBeouf

“I have been to the other side of the mountain. I gotta say, it’s been dark. It’s been weird. It’s been horrible. About a month and a half ago, I said goodbye to my kids, and I’ve been living in Burbank next to the studio. I feel every day like, I didn’t do enough, I didn’t do enough, I didn’t do enough. I wasn’t ready. Here’s failure. Here’s failure. Here’s compromise. Here’s compromise. I’m now coming out the other side, realizing that once again, for all its many varied and soon to be heralded flaws, it’s my movie. It’s the movie I set out to make. And I have the honor of saying, it’s fucking bonkers. So there’s that.”
~ Joss Whedon On Making Avengers: Age Of Ultron
