Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

i don't think i'll read the book. i want a truly cinematic experience.

anyone else feel the same way or am i crazy?


I can understand that frustration, but perhaps in this instance reading the book may be helpful to get a sense of WHERE paul wants to go cinematically.  The differences are more important than the similarities.

well hopefully this will go a little way to improve the situation discussed here: http://www.xixax.com/viewtopic.php?t=7356
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Great news, I always had the feeling that some news would be release in some holyday, when I returned from my xmas vacation I sadly saw there were none, but now... :-D .

For your admins only. Not really, for xixaxers only.

1.0 Will this be the official thread for the movie?

If so, I think here in order to not be flooded with threads about this project you should change the title of the thread, and here we can post about casting, rumors, pta articles about the film, posters, movie reviews.

1.1 If this indeed is his next project, apart from the official thread there could be official threads about:

- Soundtrack
- DVD
- Q&A's
- Festivals
- Any others?

I don't know if this idea is too rigid, but a little order would prevent this forum to be flooded with individual threads about every little detail about the project.

i've been thinking about the reading the book overnight. now i'm sort of leaning toward reading it. but am not convinced as yet. i don't want to be in the theatre waiting to see how he handles a scene or how he shows a landscape described visually. i'm concerned about that. still weighing it up. i'd like know what people think of the book when they've read it. and i'm not sure this is a very obscure book. by the sounds of things he's a somewhat well known author. but i'm not into literature. i've never heard of him.


I would read it now just to get a sense of what may have inspired Paul to adapt it into a script in the first place.  By the time it's released the memory of the book will be fuzzy anyway--provided you read it this summer.  Which, btw, is an excellent suggestion.  This novel looks long.

Interesting news. If he makes it a period piece, it would be very cool to see how he handles it. I could seriously see him making one actually. Daniel Day-Lewis could be a good fit for PTA as well. Can't wait to hear more news.

If it's a period piece, I can't fucking wait for Brion's score.

uh it's no secret that it's about sumthing that happened in the 20s, so why is there speculation on whether it's a period piece? it's pretty damn obvious, i mean, are u ppl reading anything other than ur own posts? please don't waste space on things that could be answered by reading the thread.
