"A man should be able to hear, and to bear, the worst that could be said of him..." Saul Bellow.
2015 Performances I like: Waititi, WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS; Serhant, WHILE WE'RE YOUNG; Moore, MAPS TO THE STARS...
The movie event of 2015 so far is Alex Gibney's 4-hour doc about the king of Empire: SINATRA: ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL.
DARK ROOMS a novel by Lili Anolik, published today from William Morrow. Opening sentence hooks
Premier of CHILDHOOD MACHINE: March 5th. 7PM. Northwest Film Center. Portland. @seanwhiteman @ChrisjofW @nwfilmcenter
Thanks to Canyons Kickstarter supporters The Whiteman Bros. Their new film CHILDHOOD MACHINE:…
Missed this: BEYOND THE LIGHTS (2014; Gina Prince-Bythewood). A savvy pop fantasy, quietly compelling and touching.
Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore in much much better performances in SAVAGE GRACE. No dementia, no ALS, just CRAZY.
MAPS TO THE STARS: Julianne Moore: sexy, funny, crazy. STILL ALICE: noble, smart, dying from Alzheimer's. What wins?
On page 44 of ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE (Anthony Doerr): not sure I'm going to make it. Stay with it? What happens?
End of an era. Fashion Police: one of the funniest shows on TV succumbs to Orwellian group-think and destroys itself.
Giuliana Rancic must apologize to GEN WUSS for a, um, FASHION POLICE joke? JOAN RIVERS IS ROLLING OVER IN HER GRAVE.
The Academy snubs diversity? A Mexican deservedly wins Picture, Director and Screenplay. Is anyone still bitching?
The most entertaining new movie I've seen in months is Argentina's WILD TALES: a hilarious, hypnotic, violent blast.
Fascinating and instructive double feature by obsessive auteurs: Siegel's DIRTY HARRY and Eastwood's AMERICAN SNIPER.
Thanks to THE CANYONS supporter @OlivierAmiel & good luck for his Perpignan election campaign:
Booking new guests for Season 2 of THE BRET EASTON ELLIS Podcast. Please send any ideas for people you would like on.
Happy Birthday to Jay McInerney. For reasons I don't understand we have not spoken to or seen each other in 4 years.
"He who is affected by an insult is infected..." ("Qui s'affecte d'une insulte, s'infecte...") COCTEAU.
"To dread irony is to fear reason..." ("Redouter l'ironie, c'est craindre la raison...") Sacha GUITRY.
The best tacos in LA are at Petty Cash on Beverly. Plus oysters, ceviche, drinks, chips. Happily buzzed from meal...
Lisa Kudrow in THE COMEBACK achieves a tragic-comic grace that is unlike anything I've ever seen on TV. Overwhelming.
Robert Brian Wilson is Billy, a very hot psycho Santa, in the last movie I've seen: SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT (1984)
