Sorry ebeaman, but I forgot about this thread. Anyway, yes, it's good.

For those that have seen it, didn't you love the scene where he goes to the hospital with his mom? It was one of the few heavily stylized moments of the film. I appreciate that DGG is one of the few young directors that doesn't rely on hyper style, but in this instance I though it was very effective.

Would anyone care to share a movie this guy's made? My curiosity is piqued.......

i havent seen George Washinton or All The Real Girls, but after reading a lot of praise on this board for DGG, i think a double feature on August 19th when ATRG comes out is now in store.  i am excited.

*Still hasn't seen All The Real girls*

Its becoming very sad and depressing for me. The theatre of possibility for getting it continues not to and I am starting to think they never will as they are getting movies that have been released months after that one. I guess I am waiting til august 19th. George Washington, though, is a masterpiece and only continues to grow in appreciation for me. How effective it is creating this world and painting it from the mind set of its characters instead of the one in the sky is great because no action or dialogue is truly clear and can actually be interpretated to mean many things and such. It isn't gimme writing. My appreciation for the film is so great that every single edit and shot is becoming priceless and worth analyzing and the movie itself is now of one of my favorite movies to watch. Best movie of 2000, too. I know Ebeman is a big fan of the movie, but I'm not sure he put it at number 1 for that year. Anyways, I could go on more about this movie, but it would never give the movie any justice.

What is 24 Frame News and when is it on? I watch Sundance a lot, never heard of it. Thanks for the news, I gotta tape this.

GT: yes, GW is the best movie of 2000, I don't make often pick favorites but I can say this for sure. It's as much of a miracle as magnolia and boogie nights.

Holy fuck, the show's 25 minutes long!? That is awesome!!!! That rocks, I figured it would just be a little 30 second tidbit or something, fuck yeah. Thank you so much Macguffin and thanks again to BonBon too. This definitely made my day.

Has anybody seen one of these before or is it new? Just wanted to know what it's going to be like. Is it all interviews or is there actual on-the-set footage? Even if it is just interviews, that's still awesome.
