It's funny because PTA is more defending of Hollywood fare than other auteur type directors. He seems more willing to see and appreciate a lot of Hollywood flicks for what they are. Because of that, I always wondered what he would do if he really took on a bigger type of movie. Putting Adam Sandler in a movie wasn't the same because he was adapting Sandler to his world and doing a psychological breakdown of Sandler's persona from other movies. A report is a report and can't be taken for much, but what if PTA really does make a film like this? I hate when good directors attach themselves to comic book movies because it entails a series and long commitments, but this is just one movie. Wouldn't be end of the world and even if the film gives into more staples of standard entertainment, could be interesting.

Besides, Downey played down connection of him anywhere near to being in Inherent Vice. Because the world knows PTA and Downey are friends, do they also come up with reports like this every few years? A few loose words could have produced this article.

I'm picturing PTA's Pan's Labyrinth. I know that's probably not in the cards, but I can dream.

Or imagine a PDL type fantasy energy channeled into the Pinocchio story. This could be the greatest thing ever if he directs.

"When You Wish Upon A Star" is sung by all the established characters in their various locations. Let's have Pinocchio languishing inside the whale at this point. Gepetto gazes out his window, crooning as the rain beats against the glass.


Gepetto: (need help with this one)

Jiminy Cricket: John C. Reilly, Paul F. Tompkins, or Kevin J. O'Connor

Stromboli: Ricky Jay or Alfred Molina

Lampwick: Jesse Plemons, Paul Dano, or Luis Guzman

Gepetto should obviously be Bill Macy.

I wasn't at all convinced that he was old enough, but then I googled him.

Gepetto found.

Philip Baker Hall as the old man from Pleasure Island, and he's called Mumbles O'Malley.

This is not as bad as everyone is making it seem. You know A.I is a Pinocchio story, sort of, that movie has some good moments in it. I was re watching some of it the other day, its such a tragedy that Kubrick did not make that movie, it would of been probably his magnum opus. I was yearning for the Kubrick's darkness and lightness, can you imagine how Kubrick would of shot the stuff with G. Joe. It would of been epic. Anyway it will be interesting to see what P.T Anderson cooks up, I have faith in him, its RDJ and the studios who I lack faith in. Anderson could write a brilliant script but in the end if another director is tasked with directing the movie, like a Marc Forester or Webb or one of these guys who has recent success, like the guy who did Jurassic World, or the guy who did District 9, all lame directors who just turn out products for the studio. It is pretty sad to see that in 2015 the most edgy director working within the studio system is in his 70s and his name is Scorsese, it only took decades for him to be accepted into that world, oh and working with a matinee idol like DiCaprio, he is basically locked into DiCaprio because working with him ensures box office success, young men will always go see a Scorsese movie but woman esp in the 18-30 range were not always his biggest audience, ever since Gangs of New York, he found a new audience and reaped the financial success a director always wants. I digress but it all kinda of ties together, P.T Anderson honestly needs to make a movie that also makes money, Inherent Vice was awful, and i love P.T Anderson, but as an adaption it fails, and as a P.T Anderson movie it fails, so what your left with is nothing. Visually it was semi-interesting to see Paul shoot in 1:85 with spherical lenses. I think Paul should work with DiCaprio and hopefully he will garner box office success. One thing I can say is that once a director has a smash success @ the box office, its is ADDICTIVE, and a domino effect could happen.

Its interesting to see Woody Allen and the Coen Brothers achieve great box office numbers and maintain their integrity as filmmakers. Especially Woody Allen. I was watching Blue Jasmine the other day and I was like this is such a good fucking movie, but i am a New Yorker so I am probably biased, a lot of those themes in the movie are relevant to today, not with everybody, Allen has a way of depicting the affluent Upper West Side/ East Side/ Central Park west + east lifestyle well and his attempts at doing bridge and tunnel are funny if not somewhat cliched and ha-misted he gets away with it because he always makes those latter characters goofy with hearts of gold Again I digress.

Basically Anderson has to work with an actor that has the ability to pull in a large audience, his skills as a director are ACE but he needs to maneuver himself so that he can make money so that he can continually be in the driver's seat ( meaning in the position having the opportunity to make a movie, he basically rides on that fact the he is an auteur, and that he is "an artist" filmmaker, its like the kid that doesn't work cause his folks earn and make a lot of money, and the kid is now 25, its like are you ever gonna go out and get a job or will you continue to bank on the fact the your folks are the breadwinners.)

Inherent Vice is not awful. It's quite good.
