    a real non hollywood person comes on and she gets a total of 6 minutes ? thats just not balanced… the Morgan stuff was fine .

    the dp/30 with 127 hours with the costume designer was way
    more balanced …

  2. LYT says:

    I think whoever decided that Holly should do press in costume made a bad call. She’s an attractive woman in the film – in that get-up and that lighting, she looks ill.

    So are you persuaded yet that Comic-Con is more than an unnecessary junket?

    I like Spurlock but never did see his POM Wonderful movie. Is it worth it?

  4. LYT says:

    Krillian – if you already know what product placement is and how it works, that movie’s easily missable.

  5. Don R. Lewis says:

    I thought POM Wonderful was very cool and really smart. Changed the way I approach doc filmmaking. In short- I would gladly whore my movie out to a sponsor for money since the distribution game is designed to screw the filmmaker. You have to get money up front and if your doc isn’t “IMPORTANT,” it’s really tough to get grant money.

    We tried to make our movie “Purina Presents WORST IN SHOW” but they passed saying that they thought the real dog show circuit they sponsor would get angry. Ah well.

“I really want to see The Irishman. I’ve heard it’s big brother Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece. But I really can’t find the time. The promotion schedule is so tight, there’s no opportunity to see a three and a half-hour movie. But I really want to see it. In 2017, right before Okja’s New York premiere, I had the chance to go to Scorsese’s office, which is in the DGA building. There’s a lovely screening room there, too, with film prints that he’s collected. I talked to him for about an hour. There’s no movie he hasn’t seen, even Korean films. We talked about what he’s seen and his past work. It was a glorious day. I’ve loved his work since I was in college. Who doesn’t? Anyone involved with movies must feel the same way.”

“But okay, I promise you now that if I ever retire again, I’m going to ensure that I can’t walk it back. I’ll post a series of the most disgusting, offensive, outrageous statements you can ever imagine. That way it will be impossible for me to ever be employed again. No one is going to take my calls. No one is going to want to be seen with me. Oh, it will be scorched earth. I will have torched everything. I’m going to flame out in the most legendary fashion.”
~ Steven Soderbergh
