BYOB For A Fresh Week Of Vampires


BYOB Monday

It’s not that I don’t care about you… but the day got away from me… trying to work through some of the upgrade issues that some of you so desire.
Anyway… your space…


BYOB Friday

There is a certain joy in a week like this. Mortensen, Herzog, Harrelson, Ben Foster, Amy Gilliam, and Eva Mendes were just some of the very talented group I got to spend time with and chat.
The only problem with that is, I don’t get to spend much time doing the blog.
My apologies.
And now, you’ll have to excuse me again as I head off to speak to a first time filmmaker, a veteran documentarian, and Ms. Michelle Monaghan. And there’s more tomorrow, including a living legend. Yay.
I will be around more over the weekend.


BYOB Tuesday, Not Presidential Election Day This Time

“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
