Talked to someone who did background work on this and gave me some insider knowledge of the scene he worked on...


SPOILERS


Right now, they are using Untitled Western as their title.

Scene took place in the 40's at a bar with Joaquin and another actor watching a burlesque show.

PT did A LOT (he stressed, A LOT) of takes for this 3 page dialogue scene where the characters talked about some strange things that happened regarding a book. It was a 14 hour day.

He said it felt like PT wasn't getting what he wanted and just kept trying different things. Using live music on set to play during the scene (sax player) and without, then just at the beginning of the scene. Not too many camera set-ups.

Joaquin was really thin and only wanted to be called by his character name, Johnathan.

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

I had a dream that I finally saw 'The Master' with Ratner instead of Jaoquin Phoenix in the part of Johnathan. He had done nothing to change his appearance, just played it fat and bearded and really over the top. I felt so betrayed.

Perhaps it's over-exposure to Facebook, but I often feel the need for a 'like' button on Xixax. Because, while I have nothing to add to this, I would like to register my opinion that it's fucking funny. That is: without writing LMFAO!!!!!!

Yeah, xixax needs a sort of reputation system. Many posters would step their game up.

Yeah, right. Then I should also have a reason to post more than once a week.

If only life could have some sort of reputation system, too..

Before Inglourious Basterds came out I had a dream where I saw it on the premiere and everyone hated it and started to booing. Then, Eli Roth went mad and started to scream and throw chairs on people and stuff.

Then somebody asked him to shut the fuck up and he said something like "Don't you know who I am? I'm the guy who made Hostel! I'm going to Hostel you up if YOU don't shut the fuck up!"

The whole film was from Brad Pitts point of view and had a scene where he got raped by Hitler.

I thought it was pretty bad, but not as bad as everyone else thought.

Anyway, this is pretty off topic and I'm sorry for sharing this.

That wasn't a dream.  That actually happened.

Well, I've been waiting for the directors cut since I realized that the rape scene with Hitler wasn't included. :yabbse-sad:

It was pretty crazy. Like a irl version of The Jerry Springer Show or something.

I have a dream update: in my other dream I was checking this thread and the shooting script was available and I thought "ehh, I'll read it later" then I woke up and was looking for it but I couldn't find it! That was really frustrating, like one of those dreams when you get a bunch a money and when you snap out of it, it's gone.

fwiw, this was posted on the DP's facebook on monday.  Completely speculative, but to me, it looks to be a coloring session for some serious ish...

maybe a glimpse at a scene from the master?

Fffffuuuuuuuuuuuu!

MD you are the maddest of the madcunts.

Let's run with this one fellas! Starting with guesses on what we are looking at here exactly. MD got the ball rolling with serious ish.. I'm going to extend that by pointing out the washed out window is reminiscent of the "light of the cross" that lit the church where plainview was being baptised. Itself a reference to Barry Lyndon.

..Go!
