    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.”

    They all look the same to me, General.

    Congrats on the IDA nod!

“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.”
