Lot of people stand by the theory that Lena was an alien from outer space based on a few things you said and all the lunar footage shown on TV. Thoughts?


no offense, but its in my humble opinion that this question is not only a waste of time, but also something that we really shouldnt know. PT is famous for maintaining mystery in his movies, so even if the alien theory is true i dont expect him to ever let us know. but even more than that, what do you guys think about that  kubrick qoute, something about how if we knew exactly what was going through mona lisa's head, no one could apreciate her? we all have our theories of what things represent in PT's movies, but dont you think that if he told us exactly what they meant, it might be a little dissapointing?

Well, considering that's about a tenth of his body of work, and it's 100% of Wes Anderson's, it's a little weird. But a decent choice nonetheless. I'll see if I can't find the article.

Yeah, that question is a waste of a question. More on his next project would be nice, although I expect his answer to be vague, cryptic or both. Asking him about the state of movies, is a good question, though the question about Andy Serkis would kind of put him on the spot, where he'd be obliged to say something complimentary back to Serkis.
It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

Who are we kidding? I know that I'll be happy no matter what questions he answers. We should ask him which emoticon is his favorite.

He said Wes Anderson? That's kinda suprising.

I don't think Scorsese was thinking in terms of style. I think he was just talking in terms of being a damned good filmmaker. You'll notice in his top ten of the 1990s, he names Bottle Rocket. I think he just really likes Wes Anderson as a filmmaker.

And good for him.

One sixth, to be more exact.

That's a great article!!
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.

Damn right!
