Body Heat (1981)
From the days when there weren’t a dozen or more producer credits on a film poster…
Blow-Up | Michelangelo Antonioni | 1966
American Mary, the Smurfening. Ha, this is so hilarious to me.
Jonathan Cott: Godard once said that movies are not a way to make money, they’re a way to spend money. Do you think it might be possible that the new technologies will eventually allow young filmmakers to make films again for a reasonable amount of money?
Francis Ford Coppola: Absolutely. Everybody will use it, everybody will make films, everybody will make dreams. That’s what I think is gonna happen. You’ll ship ‘em over to your friend, and he’ll ship one back. I think kids — sixteen- and twenty-year-olds today — I find them extremely bright and idealistic and ready to go. I think that, very shortly, there’s going to be a whole new way to approach things, and the designers and the architects and philosophers and artists are going to be the ones to help lead the society. And they’re the most qualified to do it.

Had a chance to see BEHIND THE CANDELABRA on the big screen Friday afternoon. And, um, I’m still more than a bit creeped out by Rob Lowe’s performance as Dr. Jack Startz. (THOSE EYES! 8-)
If one really wanted to start any film off on the wrong note, put 'Based on a true story' or some variation of this at the beginning. I think (know for a fact) audiences in general have seen that enough already and are quite tired of it.
"I don’t believe it’s a man in a suit." - Bobcat Goldthwait discusses what the world has debated for over forty years on The Dana Gould Hour podcast (the YER FEET’S TOO BIG! episode from May 9th, 2013).
WILLOW CREEK is quite an experience. Goldthwait’s directorial effort about the legacy of Bigfoot, and what some will attempt in pursuit of the creature, is a very disturbing descent into how the human mind sometimes plays vivid tricks on us. WHAT ARE those sounds we hear in the middle of a dark night? WHERE IS that person who gave us an unequivocal warning to get the hell out of here a little while ago? As a ‘found footage’ project, this will get compared endlessly to THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, but it’s much better, rooted in the enduring popularity of the 1967 Patterson-Gimlin short film shot in the California wilderness so many Autumns ago.
Seeing this in a theatre was the high point of my Fantasia Fest 2013 slate. And Mr. Goldthwait is one very entertaining Q&A guest! I hope many of you get the chance to view this on a big screen where it’ll be truly scary. And impossible to forget.
