Quentin Tarantino / Re: Tarantino Star Trek Film in the Works?

Never xixaxed this before, and even though this isn’t the appropriate thread, here goes...when IV was announced to premier at the NYFF I bought two opening night tickets off some dude on Craig’s List for $200 a piece because I knew the aguish I’d experience waiting two plus months until its release. Lavishly expensive a purchase as that was, never regretted it one iota. Alice Tully Hall was the perfect place to see it for the first time, on film no less. As my euphoria radiated with Any Day Now playing in the credits, I look a few rows down (had upper balcony seats) to see the spotlight shining on Paul and Doc, a night to remember.

I was at that screening, too! One of the best nights of my life.

I see the lack of instagram comments as a feature, not a bug.

I actually want him to do this (along with other work). He's so idiosyncratic that it would be cool to see something that is pure craft and that stands apart from his other work. So in that regard, it's kinda unfortunate that he needs it to be foulmouthed.

The french translator of Pynchon was at that screening and—lie or not—wrote that he saw an old man leave the theater just after the end, a man with a cap. It sounds too dramatic to be true. But I'm sure Pynchon could not resist to be there that night.

Much as i’ll miss the unbearable excitement of a new QT movie, Hollywood indeed sounds like an appropriate swan song. I’m content to watch his 9 for the rest of time, plenty of meat there. So far this month rewatched IG in theaters and Hateful Eight on blu and already crave replays, they’re that densely enjoyable. gonna go through the rest before new one comes out.

And yeah, couldn’t give a fuck less about Trek, but would obviously watch one helmed by the man. Also, what the fuck, I so just want to watch OUATIH right fucking now, the wait is such a pain in the ass.

SPOILERS



I haven't watched the movie yet, but I've seen the world "prank" used twice to describe one of the narrative devices of the documentary. I'll see if it's a prank, but mixing "lies" (or what I'd call fiction) with "true" (what's real, man, and can you film and edit it?) footage seems to me like a fantastic way to understand the medium and Dylan's career. The past is a reconstruction...

Let's see.

EDIT: It begins with a french pun. Re-Vue for Revue. Re Vue in French means Seen Again, it's also used for something that has been edited or reinterpreted.

But Once Upon a Time in America sounds like a good swan song.

Never had anything even remotely resembling a passing interest in Star Trek. I hope this ain't #10.

Is he ending his career with this?

It's not his script so he might be able to veto it as the "10th film by QT"
Or he reaches 60 and doesn't make anything.
