didnt see a topic for this elsewhere, but i watched that HBO biopic The Life and Death of Peter Sellers the other night.  it wasnt too great because it had to skim over so much, but not bad either.  cast was good, especially Rush who had to play dozens of characters including members of Sellers family as Sellers.  his life was really depressing though, and i kind of wish i didnt know that stuff.    Stanley Tucci as Stanley Kubrick seemed odd?  Charlize Theron in 60's gear seemed hot?  if Blake Edwards and Sellers relationship was really that rough, thats terrible. (?)
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.
