BYOB – Apolitical

Yeah… we’re almost there.
No… I’m not going to stop just because we’re close.
Yeah… by the end of next week, you will see the last political post in here for a long while.

BYOB – Apolitical

For those who really do come here exclusively for movie stuff… sorry… kinda…
The election is, I feel, much more important and the behavior being exhibited lately is so extreme that silence about it seems like acceptance (see: The Clintons)… I can’t live with that.
But here is some space for something else.
And there will be more movie stuff as we come to the end of the election cycle.
Meanwhile, there is lots of good stuff on the cover of MCN, including the closing part of The 48 Hrs Diaries, 4 looks at Paul Newman (1, 2, 3, 4), a look at German cinema, Wilmington reviews and more.
And in BYOB, any ideas you feel like throwing out there….

“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.”
~ Bong Joon-ho

“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
