Looks like your friend may have copied/pasted the C&RV interview section. ;) Which is fine, it's still nice to see myself in "print."

The cover is nice tho.

Streamed the Arthur Penn movie Night Moves last night, a prime example of why Gene Hackman was one of the best to ever do it. He gets into character in a way that feels effortless, taking on mannerisms that add subtle layers not really seen these days. He plays Harry Moseby (great name), an ex football player turned PI, and at one point as he's casually walking away you see Moseby imitate quarterbacking pigskin. The movie is really interesting in how so little happens until it comes together in the last 20 minutes, up until then you're simply basking in the character interactions with minimal plot progression. This is not the Hackman of Hoosiers, Unforgiven, or Uncommon Valor, but a much more vulnerable role than I'm used to seeing him in. Didn't realize Melanie Griffith plays the missing child until some chunks of dialogue later recognizing the pipsqueak sound to be the same as the one from Milk Money, a childhood classic. I don't think her voice changed a drop from age 17 on. 

This is good LA noir with a touch of East Coast swamp soaked in a bleak 70's vibe. Glad to have finally seen it, one of many unseen classics I need to catch up with.

A friend of mine made a book for The Master: it's a pretty object with a great cover, you'd mostly be happy to look at it. Its content is for fanatics. It begins with the first news about the movie. You'll find interviews with the crew. Mostly everyone.  The pages from the first draft—the one that leaked—that didn't make it into the movie. It collects what's been said about the movie by the people who made it. And at the end, you'll discover that in the process you became an expert on PTA BS.

New one is in the works supposedly. It's coming along. Likely an Annapurna release.

I have serious Space Nerd credentials, so I'll definitely see this--despite my deep dislike of Whiplash and tepid reaction to "La La Land".
