The Courts Will Have to Save Net Neutrality, Writes Tim Wu

“The problem for Mr. Pai is that government agencies are not free to abruptly reverse longstanding rules on which many have relied without a good reason, such as a change in factual circumstances. A mere change in F.C.C. ideology isn’t enough. Mr. Pai’s rationale for eliminating the rules is that cable and phone companies, despite years…

David Fincher

“The problem with auteurism is that it presupposes that one person can impress upon 95 people, so clearly, that the manifestation of whatever it is going on in your head can be clearly attributed to them. The reality of moviemaking is, y’know, it’s a ratfuck.” David Fincher

“‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Boss Offers Point-by-Point Rebuttal to Ratner Assault Claim Denials”

“He holds all the power on that set. Brett Ratner holds All. The. Power. And he’s not accused of ‘hitting on women.’ He’s accused of offering speaking roles to background actors in exchange for sexual favors. Totally different. A heterosexual man hitting on women at say, a bar, is healthy and natural behavior. A man…

Newhart

In 1960, Warner Brothers execs George Avakian & James Conkling, took a chance on a nascent comedian who had never played a nightclub. They produced "The Button Down Mind" which won Album of the Year. George died today at 98. Thank you George & James for taking that chance. — Bob Newhart (@BobNewhart) November 23,…

“Grey Gardens gave up the last of its ghosts over the weekend. The once-squalid home of the most notorious mother-daughter dyad since Tennessee Williams poured his own family into ‘The Glass Menagerie’ went into contract last month, and its contents were unloaded in a three-day estate sale.”

“The daily stream of revelations about sexual harassment should be viewed, at least in part, as a belated backlash to Trump’s 2016 victory, which came despite the emergence of the ‘Access Hollywood’ video and several women who accused him of misconduct.”

“There’s a continuum of conduct. On the one end, there’s Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, seemingly criminal misconduct, and I don’t have a lot of sympathy for those people at all. They deserve whatever befalls them. And at the far extreme on the other end, there are people who are just obviously, borderline pathetic, but also…

What’s up with your people mover shot, where it seems like people are kind of floating along?
Oh, my signature shot? That’s just a new way for people to move! It’s really become my Alfred Hitchcock cameo. I did not invent that shot, but Ernest and I did it on the set of Mo Better Blues, when Shorty had to walk [through the park], and I thought, “Let’s try it.” But after that, we tried to have a reason for it. For example, that wonderful sequence in Malcolm X where you hear the great song, “A Change Is Gonna Come.” The final scene is like that, Malcolm floating along to his destiny. In 25th Hour, after Philip Seymour Hoffman has kissed Anna Paquin, we did a shot like that, and it shows his state of mind. In Inside Man, after Denzel thinks he’s witnessed the murder of a hostage, we did the floating shot there.

So you just like the way it looks?
Yeah!
~ Spike Lee To Matt Zoller Seitz

“I never accepted the term contrarian. I think that’s offensive, frankly. And my response to that is: if I’m a contrarian, what are other reviewers? What I strive to do is be a good critic, not somebody who simply accepts the product put in front of me. I guess it scares people to think that they don’t have any originality; that they don’t have the capacity to think for themselves.

“There’s a line a lot of reviewers use that I don’t like at all. They say ‘accept the film on its own terms.’ What that really means is, ‘accept the film as it is advertised.’ That’s got nothing to do with criticism. Nothing to do with having a response as a film watcher. A thinking person has to analyze what’s on screen, not simply rubber-stamp it or kowtow to marketing.”m

“To me, everything does have a political component and I think it’s an interesting way to look at art. It’s one way that makes film reviewing, I think, a politically relevant form of journalism. We do live in a political world, and we bring our political sense to the movies with us – unless you’re the kind of person who goes to the movies and shuts off the outside world. I’m not that kind of person.”
~ Armond White to Luke Buckmaster
