This is the kind of thing you dream of as a filmmaker – the continued showing of your work in its native format in places that love and cherish films.  Pinch me.  No, don’t.   --Paul Thomas Anderson
 

I think it would have been more interesting to swap out Inherent Vice for Hard Eight...

Interesting.  Thought this was a European-only Tour.  Wonder if L.A. will be on board?  I'd love to see these again with an audience of the faithful.  (Shit, I might even give IV another try!)

Hard Eight is the only one I haven't seen on 35 and/or 70, so it's the only MUST for me, but I also might check out Vice on 35 again, haven't seen it that way since the NYFF screening.

Same. Would really love to see Hard Eight on the big screen. Gonna try to make it.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Looks like some version of this is coming to L.A.?

Quote
Paul Thomas Anderson The retrospective of the five-time Oscar nominee and San Fernando Valley native’s films kicks off with Boogie Nights, his surprisingly sweet 1997 ode to the ’70s porn industry. With Mark Wahlberg, Burt Reynolds, Julianne Moore and Heather Graham. Also showing are Anderson’s 2007 masterpiece, There Will Be Blood, with Daniel Day-Lewis; Hard Eight (1996) with Philip Baker Hall, John C. Reilly and Gwyneth Paltrow; and the SFV-set ensemble drama Magnolia (1999). Laemmle NoHo 7, 5240 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, (310) 478-3836. Jan. 4, 11, 18, 25, 7:30 p.m. $12; $9 for ages 62+. www.laemmle.com

Hmm.  No mention of 35mm, and only Boogie, Blood, Hard 8, and Magnolia...   Still!

Good catch.  Format isn't listed for the other three, does that imply 35mm?    Got my tickets, so we'll find out I guess...

Serious Question:   What other living filmmaker would generate a special retrospective (ie, the "P.T.A. 35mm Tour", etc) upon the release of his newest feature?  I could see it happening with Kubrick back in the day, certainly (although I can't remember if it actually did.)  What other filmmaker's body of work has enough built-in interest to support this type of series?

There is definitely enough interest, though.

Martin Scorsese. Steven Spielberg. Sofia Coppola. Michael Mann. David Lynch. Edgar Wright. If Jordan Peele matches Get Out's excellence a few more times, he could join this list. Same potential is there for Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) and David Robert Mitchell (It Follows), among others.

Is Jean Luc-Godard a stretch? Everyone loves his early work, so I feel like even if I generally don't see as much enthusiasm for his post-French New Wave stuff, a similarly wide-reaching retrospective at indie theatres could still get some traction.

They certainly could put up a retrospective for any of those, but would they?  Spielberg grinds out films pretty regularly (also, Woody Allen), but we don't see the retrospectives.  I think you need a combination of highly-regarded and lesser-output?
