    Anyone going to see Boyhood this weekend? Man am I dying to see it. Not sure when it will hit Milwaukee (if it does; with Landmark here you never know).

    Dawn was good for what it was, especially like the Gun Crazy shot with Koba at the helm of the tank …. but why does [EDITED] blow himself up and how does Caesar get operated on for his bullet wound and then in the next scene he’s leaping around like an ape

    Is that a spoiler?

    one of my favorite dp30’s recently – Elliott Lester tells some great stories about working with actors and does cool voices. if you have the time watch the whole thing.

    i had no idea who this guy was and now i’m a fan… somehow DP didn’t screw up this interview up.

    DP/30 @ LAFF: Elliott Lester, Nightingale

    This Guardian article was amazing even before I reached the following:

    “Dinesh D’Souza, the Oliver Stone of the Tea Party, has now made two movies about the meaning of Obama’s presidency. The first, 2016: Obama’s America, garnered an astounding $33m at the box office, and his lawyers blamed disappointing returns from this summer’s America on a Google conspiracy to confuse moviegoers about its showtimes. (Of course.)”

    (The gist of the article is that the Right is doomed because a majority of Millennials are flaming liberals. One caveat is that the phrase “under-30″ comes up frequently, bringing to mind the Guizot quote “Not to be a republican at 20 is proof of want of heart; to be one at 30 is proof of want of head.” Of course the French meaning of “republican” in the early 1800s is the reverse of the current American meaning.)

“I wanted that feeling that you could live in a city your entire life and never meet anyone who wasn’t like you.”
Gillian Flynn

“We’re all going to die so it makes it very easy. I haven’t always thought that way but I’ve realized it’s the truth. I think age gets you there, questioning your mortality… When you realize that, it’s so liberating, it’s so free, you can fly! There’s no need to hold on to anything. Like, think of the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you; it’s probably happened to 500 million people as well. Who gives a shit!”
