I actually have to check what day of the week it is when I post these now…


BYOB – Quiet Tuesday


BYOB Friday – 61110


Happy Monday

Still in Seattle…
There are many reasons I love this town and this festival. The tone, the variety, the filmmaker experience… the people, the restaurants, the art…
Last night, after a quiet, pleasurable filmmakers’ dinner, in a restaurant with a live sax/piano combo playing all evening, I ran into my two first “have you seen anything great here?” films of this year’s experience.


BYOB – Traveling Thursday, 6310

On the road to Seattle, the town so nice there is no glib rhyme to explain why…

“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
