The old ptanderson.com site was abandoned and taken over by spammers long ago. I assume your malware blocker is spotting links to that site in the thread and doing its impression of Shaggy and Scooby Doo going into a scary old house.

EDIT: Except there are no link to ptanderson.com in this thread.... Weird.

It's just Chrome. Happened when I clicked on page one of the thread, then just now when I clicked to reply. Weird.
Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

They've been working on that piece for probably 3 years. (I was interviewed for it in like 2011 maybe? when I was writing for C&RV.) No idea why it took so long to post, I think they kept trying to get PTA to be interviewed and he had no interest. Still a pretty great piece.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Never knew Albert Brooks was offered Jack Hornwr. From Judd Apatow's book:

“One of the reasons I didn’t go into it again was I am enjoying acting and there were so many movies I turned down as an actor because I was making my own movies. Every time I see Boogie Nights—you know, I got offered the part that Burt Reynolds got. And I remember going into a screening room and seeing Paul Thomas Anderson. No one knew him yet, and I watched Hard Eight, and I thought, Oh, this is good—this is someone you would like to take a chance with. But I was just getting the money to make The Muse, and if you’re writing and directing “and starring in a movie, you can’t stop”

Yep, pretty interesting. (But that came out at least a few years ago.)
