I wish we had learned more about him preparing and shooting "Daydreaming." I think he mentioned elsewhere that it was done in a few days, despite all of those locations, so that sounds really crazy and interesting. Maybe the Twitter Q&A will offer something on that front...

Renamed 'Hal'. Premiering at Sundance.

I love the way he randomly capitalizes certain words and phrases...

"Movie Theater"
"Director's Job"
"Kitchen Table"

I recall him doing the same thing in his scripts for emphasis, especially in dialogue.

This was an especially good episode of the podcast. "This" was also a pretty good episode of The X-Files. (I'm hilarious.)

Keva is a really superb guest. I hope you have Roi back soon as well.

Erika Price is a clear reference to Erik Prince. (Relevant article here.) I think they brought some very specific real-world concerns into the episode quite deftly.

The banter was sooo on point. And like you said, Scully's agency was off the charts in this episode. I would say it verged on overcorrection, except all of it actually worked. Is Glen Morgan the one who's historically been best at writing Scully?

Less thrilled with the sci-fi premise here. If you're going to do a Black Mirror episode, you have to take the details seriously. I suppose they didn't have much time to flesh it out, though.

If you could go back, what’s one thing you’d tell yourself while making Magnolia?
Chill The Fuck Out and Cut Twenty Minutes

LOL.  Great answer...

And this is a little startling!

You once said Magnolia is the best film you will ever make. Do you feel you have since topped yourself? If not, will you?
Junun is better!

Ilppo Pohjola's Daddy and the Muscle Academy (1991) on blu-ray from Zeitgeist, restored from the original camera negative



Tom of Finland is one of the major icons of the gay world. His provocative erotic drawings have had an enormous influence on gay identity, attitude and self-understanding. This ground-breaking work combines interviews with Tom (prior to his death in 1992) and his leather men acolytes with hundreds of his original drawings and steamy fantasy scenes inspired by his work.
