    Sounds like an interesting film. Mr Skolimowski seems kind and thoughtful. I heard from many friends Vincent Gallo’s performance is spectacular. The interviewer mentions Vincent Gallo as difficult to work with and yet i have never heard a single filmmaker mention Gallo as difficult. Francis Ford Coppola mentions how much he love Gallo and how funny he was. I think for Gallo the negative response to his website humor (which i think is super funny and smart) gets confused with his working habits and real person. I met him once and found him extremely attractive, funny and kind.

    It’s been a long time since the days of “Moonlighting,” “The Shout” and “Deep End,” but I’m willing to give Skolimowski the benefit of the doubt.
    And I’m still hoping to someday see “Four Nights of Anna” from 2009 which is supposed to be terrific.
    Does “Essential” have a distributer (or U.S. release date) yet? It’s one of the year-end screeners I still haven’t gotten around to watching.

“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.”
