Dearest Paul,

How many movies do you watch a day?
What are your top 3 favorite films of all time?


Sincerely,

fanboy#75 SoNowThen
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Dear Paul,

What's the definitive answer:  Did Phillip Seymor Hoffman really get hurt in the Matress Man commercial or not?

With greatest respects,

Nick

P.S. I loved you in Minority Report

Dear Paul,

How do you spend your time when you're not writing or directing?

Thanks,
Sydney

Lovely Paul!

What do you feel about the violence in your pal Tarantinos films? We all know your attitude towards Fight Club.

Paul!

A question we all are afraid to ask...

Any tips for aspiring filmmakers concerning writing, directing, breaking in etc?

I guess the most obvious question is: what's next?
- What movies/filmmakers are you currently digging?
- Was Lena originally an alien in PDL (still sticking by my story on that one)?

Dear PTA, finish these sentensces:

1.) You might be surprised to learn that I can...

2.) One thing I can't live without is... (refrain from saying movies, music, television, etc.)

3.) I don't get it. They can put a man on the moon, but they can't...

4.) I'm not obsessive-compusive, but I always have to...

5.) Besides "A warm gun," Happiness is...
