    I don’t begrudge Emmerich doing a film with this angle, but his attitude like the case against Shakespeare is overwhelming is more laughable than the slaveless Mel Gibson character in THE PATRIOT.

    LOOK AT HIM!

    It’s always weird when a GREAT ARTIST makes a movie about a lesser artist.

    i have zero interest in this film but i like the last 10 minutes.

    Way to be talking about “A Knight’s Tale” (not his movie) when he was talking about Heath Ledger in “The Patriot.”

  5. David Poland says:

    They all look the same to me, General.

    Congrats on the IDA nod!

“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.”
