    Fun chat. Hope Don listens.

    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.

“I am just grateful I am still around. I would love to be Steven Soderbergh, but I am lucky to be Joe Swanberg. Actors want to work with me, people want to give me money, and my nightmare scenario remains: Getting in bed with a studio, spending years on a movie, and it turns out horrible, but now I’m rich.”

Actually, by Hollywood standards, you’re right, I said. That is unambitious.

“It is, and yet, if you can go to bed happy at night, doing what you want, isn’t that ambition for a lifetime?”

“In retrospect, nothing of that kind surprised me about Philip, because his intuition was luminous from the instant you met him. So was his intelligence. A lot of actors act intelligent, but Philip was the real thing: a shining, artistic polymath with an intelligence that came at you like a pair of headlights and enveloped you from the moment he grabbed your hand, put a huge arm round your neck and shoved a cheek against yours; or if the mood took him, hugged you to him like a big, pudgy schoolboy, then stood and beamed at you while he took stock of the effect.”
