don't know if you all have seen this yet...but...interesting...

Paul Thomas Anderson ghost-directing Prairie Home Companion?
Posted Jul 18, 2005, 3:15 PM ET by Karina Longworth
Filed under: DIY/Filmmaking, Celebrities and Controversy, Drama, Robert Rodriguez, Independent

Rex, from Fimoculous and MNSpeak, forwarded us this bit of gossip from the latter blog: apparently, director Paul Thomas Anderson is not only hanging about the set of Robert Altman's Prairie Home Companion, but sources say he's essentially directing the picture whilst the 80-year-old Altman barks orders from his wheelchair and drifts in and out of an old man stupor. Okay, well, actually, MNSpeak says, "the producers of the film probably insisted that Altman commit to a "backup" director because of his age ... and some say [Anderson is] basically running daily production of the film. [...] Between cuts, Robert belts directions over a mic while PT runs up to stage and speaks with the actors directly."


Now, as we know from the Robert Rodriguez/Frank Miller/Sin City/"Screw you, DGA" debacle, current union rules won't allow two directors to be credited on the same film. That's why, according to Rex and his sources, an announcement will be made later this week as to Anderson having been added as an "executive producer" on the picture.

We can't yet vouch for the accuracy of these rumors from the Midwest, but they make for some pretty delicious midday morsels. Even if there's something sad about Altman being a little too, uh, advanced to go it alone, Rex is dead on when he says that Altman and Anderson are "natural aesthetic fits" for one another, and the idea of them genuinely collaborating with one another is pretty exciting. Of course, the other theory is that Anderson's only hanging around because Maya Rudolph, his pregnant girlfriend of three years, is in the film. But we'll choose to believe the slightly jucier version until we're proven wrong about it ...
these things do happen

That's funny as shit. God, I hope Lohan isn't good in it. Shes used to be about as hot as PTA was talented. But not vice versa.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

damn, this just jumped towards the top of my HOLY SHIT! list.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

his quotes at the imdb sort of creeped me out within this context. look:

"Retirement? You're talking about death, right?"

"Mr. and Mrs. Smith get married, they have problems, they get back together and they live happily ever after. End of the movie. Two weeks later, he kills her, grinds her body up, feeds it to his girlfriend who dies of ptomaine poisoning, and her husband is prosecuted and sent to the electric chair for it--but here's our own little story with the happy ending. What is an ending? There's no such thing. Death is the only ending."

but here's the palliative:

"Filmmaking is a chance to live many lifetimes."
context, context, context.

Found this on the imdb messageboards posted by cityfilms84:

"Well right at the moment, he's hanging out on the set of A Prairie Home Companion directed by Robert Altman. I was lucky enough to be an extra today and he was inside the theater during the shoot. It seemed like he was helping out... some sort of an uncredited producer. He, by the way, is now Maya Rudolph's boyfriend, and she's in the movie. So that's that! "

I can see this creating  a new problem when the eventual dvd comes out.
"Should I group this with the RObert Altman movies or the PT Anderson pictures?"
"I have love to give, I just don't know where to put it."

All of this is incredibly interesting and should make for a fascinating film.
Raven haired Linda and her school mate Linnea are studying after school, when their desires take over and they kiss and strip off their clothes. They take turns fingering and licking one another's trimmed pussies on the desks, then fuck each other to intense orgasms with colorful vibrators.
