someone started this one thread on IMDB, and it raises an interesting question (even though most of the posters don't have as much incite as on her, *no shit*)

Who's going to get top billing in this film? Nicholson? Leo? Matty? Marky?
So many guys with brown hair who girls like too.
Hmmm...Scorsese tappin' the pussy market?
Anyways, I just hope this movie isn't ego-trippings (although I doubt it with actors who have actual TALENT), and if it is, I hope it helps the story. 'Nuff Said.

(and oh yes...that first pic does look like a scene from Spiderman, and the lighting makes me think of Jerry MacGuire. Hm!)

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0161978/

The true star of the film... Matt Damon's "Lighting Specialist" (apparently when you get engaged to Lena Headey, "stand-in" isn't good enough anymore).  Seriously, who the fuck is this guy?
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

he knows how to light Matt Damon. he could light Matt Damon with a shiny spoon from 50 miles away in the dark. he could light Matt Damon old school with a candle he can make using wax he keeps in his pocket just in case Matt Damon has to travel back in time.

Doyle Speaks on Scorsese's The Departed, and it Ain't Pretty

Depending on who you talk to, Martin Scorsese's The Departed is either a remake of or just based on Infernal Affairs, a massive hit in its native Hong Kong  -- and elsewhere in Asia -- and a sneakily well-crafted thriller to boot. Whatever its actual relationship to Infernal Affairs -- the producers did buy the series rights, and used them in some way in crafting The Departed -- Scorsese's film stars Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio and, at long last, has been given a release date: According to Box Office Mojo, the movie will hit American screens on October 6.

So, that's the simple, good news. Now we get to the fun part: Christopher Doyle, one of the world's best-known, best respected cinematographers (he shot such visually stunning works as Chungking Express, First Love: Litter on the Breeze, and Happy Together) was the "visual consultant" on Infernal Affairs and in a recent interview with Saul Symonds, a writer in Hong Kong, pulled no punches when asked about The Departed.

Here's what Doyle had to say about THE DEPARTED:

"I find it disappointing if not depressing to see someone of the integrity and scholarship of Marty:

1) apparently not knowing or caring where the original originates from (which I find insulting to our integrity and efforts...when of all the filmmakers in the world Marty is the one who pretends to celebrate excellence and integrity and vision in cinematography)

2) needing to suck box office, or studio, or whoever's dick he feels he needs to suck...it can't be for the money...it can't be for the film (for the reasons above)...it must be just to work...which is mostly my motivation most of the time...but to have something fall into one's lap because one is supposedly competent in a certain kind of filmmaking is exactly why we are moving on and accountants are making non-subtitled versions of what we do.

3) it makes me very sad to see Marty and so many others genre-fying and gentrifying himself into mediocrity. Granted, mediocre is not just a Western ailment...but it would seem the disease is malign and endemic."

I believe it was in that same interview that Doyle said The Aviator and Eyes Wide Shut were both, separately: "a piece of shit"...so that's enough reason to assume he's on some "i'm hip and smart and I can say anything I want no matter how disrespectful it is" phase....I like the fact that true geniuses like scorsese or kubrick would never have the impulse or the need to say anyone's film is "a piece of shit" on any interview.

Or even respond to garbage like this.  See the Anderson/Smith story... wait - no, don't do that.

i hope that by 'everybod' you mean christopher doyle specifically. cos no one has said anything about the movie, news was posted about doyle talking shit and we reacted, no need to get defensive.

Sorry not posting a trailer....but I did see one with Miami Vice, and it looks pretty sweet.

I sense a Nicholson nom with this. This has got to be online sometime this weekend.
