10. Tell me about your relationship with Quentin. How did you meet? Do you
spend much time together. Talk about your trip to the Kill Bill set and your
thoughts on the film?
quentin and i were both raised by wolves in california and we reunited in 1997
through a mutual friend. I love him and i love his work. kill bill was one helluva friday night movie and i suppose we all have to wait for saturday night to really make sense of what the hell is going on....we spend as much time together as we should.....just enough. My trip to China to visit him was mostly about making sure that the extascy was good enough for him to try....seeing the great wall, visiting all the landmarks, sleeping in a nice hotel, watching him kill people, getting blood all over me and helping spend Miramax's money....
Films I saw this week
The Station Agent
I Am Curious Yellow
The Sweet Hereafter
I Am Curious—Yellow would mostly likely be a forgotten movie—left somewhere in the multitudinous ranks of 1960s experimental avant-garde films that mix sex and politics—if the U.S. Customs Office hadn’t seized the first copy being imported by its distributor, Grove Press, into the United States in 1968.
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Steve Martin, whose film roles have ranged from The Jerk to Father of the Bride, is now stepping up to play bumbling Inspector Clouseau in an MGM remake of The Pink Panther.
you think you really know me : the gary wilson story
Just saw the director's cut of Alien, now in theatres. And I just realized I've never seen the film before. I guess I've seen the others in the franchise, but somehow skipped the original.
It stands up quite well, some 24 years later. The film is a bit grainy by current standards. But by the time the full-grown Alien is roaming the ship, what film grain? Some of the computer screens are a bit dated -- in the future they have vector graphics displays for terrain mapping? That is like so retro.
Yes, DVD's are cool, but even HD DVD's (coming later this decade) don't match the visual richness of film. Check it out.
