Baby Rosemary begins with this:

I got LA Wars which I know you did, too, wilder. we both slept on Action USA but whatever. did you Martial Law? I didn’t Martial Law and I led the countdown to its sell out. did you Vice Academy? I slept on that and he’s maybe like one of those true bad directors they support but it does have a sexual cover so I woulda bought it

Action USA I picked up MVD Visual’s release of, and the Vice Academy set I snatched off eBay late last year. I don’t know what to say about most of these VS titles because their taste is tastelessness and we all know what we like when we see it. I'm pro-Vice Academy.

What about Bradley Cooper dripping in blood?

Nah.  I think it's played completely for laughs. The wee ones are safe.

It's a safe bet this will be rated R

Maybe for language...but I think that would be it.

after my HWTBF sale order arrived I ordered six VS movies from a target B2G1 sale and I just ordered, not on sale, this and Adoration and Altered Innocence Vol 1. this is my assessment of the VS partner labels

AGFA -- a few obvious supports (Ed Wood, The Zodiac Killer movie made to trap the zodiac killer), but overall the most accepting of the unknown out of all of them. it's a miracle they exist because a lot of this would not only be forgotten without them but, even better, without them some of these would be never known. in cahoots with VS and Bleeding Skull and SW and they just touched hands with Shout

Fun City Editions -- seemingly the coolest although I'm going to select another candidate for coolest. respect to these movies that are somehow both unknown to me and overly familiar to me. I was previously familiar with Smile. they're good but I know their kind of good. though I haven't even watched Jeremy or I Start County yet (I own them)

Circle Collective/Utopia -- I'm not clear how but they're connected. I am pro-Donny's Bar Mitzvah although Shiva Baby is the widely welcomed. I like Shiva Baby though I heard someone compare it to Philip Roth and that's crazy. Crestone has the only Animal Collective score there is, which, respect

Gunpowder & Sky -- still learning about them, only one release. Prospect is too expensive and it comes with trading cards

Music Box Selects -- contemporary art house movies that you would expect to be embraced by the contemporary art house? could be simplifying it, being hard on it, but after all these are the answers I'm making up. potential to bring some bangers

Pulse Video -- a French version of a video-nerd boutique label

ETR Media -- Green Jello is dumb so I want to see what they do next

Saturn's Core -- a bunch of regional VHS stuff that I don't know much about and might be a sort of variation of AGFA

Altered Innocence -- I think they like cool stuff. I went pure AI with this order because it's just dawned on me that I need to see their shorts. these are the Knife + Heart people and Knife + Heart is a contemporary example of a cool genre movie. Equation To An Unknown is a "long-lost masterpiece of gay erotic cinema." I own The Wild Boys and I ordered the three I mentioned and basically I'm doing that to encourage my perspective to travel in that direction. I think they comprehend vibes

It's a safe bet this will be rated R as well, I suppose his daughter Pearl who's turning 16 this year will see it and that's it.

I was wondering lately when he will open up about the film for the first time. He gave his first Phantom Thread interview three weeks before the first preview screenings. Or he could just wait to attend the press conference of the festival Soggy Bottom will premiere in.

I recently re-encountered this story from 2018, and it would not surprise me at all if there are aspects of this script that ended up in Soggy Bottom--in part or in whole.

Paul Thomas Anderson Reveals He’s Writing A Script With His Daughter

Paul Thomas Anderson isn’t one to divulge what his next project might be. The filmmaker likes to read, research, write, put things away, come back to them — asking him about his next film is a fool’s errand, because he probably doesn’t quite know himself. However, the director does seem to be entertaining the notion of finally making a movie that his kids — aged 12, 8, 6, and 4 — can watch.

Doing some pre-Oscar press with The Los Angeles Times, Anderson confirmed the story that his son had seen him cutting some promos for “Phantom Thread,” and when he noticed it was rated R, complained, “Aaaaw….c’mon!” Well, the director’s daughter might forge the path for Anderson to make something more family friendly.

“Well, I’m working right now on a story with my daughter Lucy. She’s 8. She has taken it upon herself, realizing that if I wasn’t going to do it, she would do it with me. We’re trying to hash out something right now. It’s a good collaboration too. It keeps you on your toes,” he shared. I was trying to guide the story to something a little bit darker, where my instincts wanted to take it, and she was politely, very sweetly reminding me I was aiming it that way and brought it back. We had a good run at it and took a break. We’ve got to get back to it.”

They mentioned it and were equally weirded out.

Although... I'd like to believe Alex wears that patch solely as a history-nerd-conversation-starter so she can "well actually" people about how the confederate battle flag is not technically the flag of the Confederate States of America.
