That's dumb. Just watch them at home. There's nothing special about these particular screenings.

I've never seen a movie on real film.
Is it that different from digital theaters?

It's hard to describe, but there's more depth when you're watching projected film. Richer contrast, warmer color. Digital projection may be crystal clear but doesn't feel as alive. Theres gotta be a dozen conversations about this around here somewhere.

I'm just passing on a link.

"A post-script journey through Philip Seymour Hoffman's lifetime in cinema.

200 hours of work went into breaking down 47 of Hoffman's films. Compiling his legacy has been one of the most challenging experiences I've ever faced as an editor, and yet indescribably rewarding. I can assure you that after 22 years on screen and nearly fifty films, we now look at the work of an actor who never had a single dishonest moment on camera. I know because I've seen them all. Please take a breather and raise your glasses to one of our greatest.

Is by chance anyone's name here Dennis? I met a really cool, rabid PTA fan at The Master screening who could have been a Xixaxer.
12+ viewing in theaters(lost count), one of the best yet...

We fought against the day and we won... WE WON.

Cinema is something you do for a billion years... or not at all.

That clip is heartwarming and also the best parts of the documentary on Magnolia. But there's something PTA says when he spits out the mouthwash, he says "Sorry Frank". Is "Frank" Tom Cruise who sits in the background in a sort of comatose state?

Frank is referring to Frank TJ Makckey, who as you know is Tom Cruise's character. Not sure what comatose state you had in mind, but the scene PTA and PSH are working on in this clip is towards the end of the movie when Frank has arrived at the residence of Earl Partridge and goes to sit by his bedside and call him a piece of shit etc.

during this extremely emotional scene between father and estranged son, Phil Parma stands in the background at a distance and out of focus. PTA is making fun of PSH by suggesting he will overact this moment where he really should be doing as little as possible, as the point of the scene will be taking place in the foreground. in other words PSH will be "hamming" it up, and delivering a "cheesy" performance, hence PTA's hilarious encapsulation of PSH's approach as "a study in ham and cheese". it's funny because PSH is obviously a great actor and he would have to be a complete amateur to actually do all that.

the other funny part is that obviously PTA and PSH have a lot of private jokes, being old friends. and we're made privy to one such running gag when PTA suggests that PSH will perhaps take a pen to his mouth and click it against his teeth as part of his background action. the reference here is that this is something PSH actually did as Scotty J in Boogie Nights, you can see the clipboard and pen here where he leads Dirk to the set:



in that scene Scotty keeps putting the pen in his mouth, of course there is a rather obvious sexual connotation to it as he is at the same time drooling over Dirk, the pen becomes a phallic object. so it is a bit "cheesy" in how not-subtle it is. this is why PSH in the magnolia doco says "three years later and we're still talking about it", i guess he came up with that part on his own. it's kind of brilliant really, i don't think it's any more cheesy than using the song You Sexy Thing to play during the first time Scotty sees Dirk at the pool party, in a POV shot no less.

I think Christian might be talking about the guy on the couch in the background of that clip. Highly doubt that's Cruise as he was anti-That Moment.

EDIT: quoted P's significant insight as more accessible top-o-the page cache for when said recoverer comes probing.
