I was. Everyone missed my extremely subtle humor.

Except you.

Thank you.

If you want substitutions I won't put up a fight.
You can have your roast beef on the rye.... or the kaiser.

(It's frightening how much of that I could type right here and now from memory. If I wanted to.)

Actually, Rian, it makes me absurdly happy that you haven't forgotten. Now...do a little "Werewolves of London" and my weekend will be made.

I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's
His hair was perfect

(It took me longer than I'll admit to best articulate that onomatopoeia.)

I saw it last night at SLIFF and enjoyed it a lot. The crowd was really into it and the pacing felt perfect. Felt like it was over right after it started.

You can find it on punch-card, I think.

OOH!

We LOVE punch-card!

(mostly that we get to insert it and then spit it out and then insert it again, ad recteum)

Seriously, Rian.

Give us a copy on DVD.

We SWEAR we won't share it.

Just saw the movie on Saturday (with a bunch of other forum goons) and wanted to share a couple of thoughts.

First of all, I really dug it. Great job, Rian and crew.

Others can and hopefully will speak more eloquently on the excellence of the script, the cinematography, and the acting. My favorite aspect of the film is how well it gets across the idea that it's possible to write your own story. It's something the characters in the film discuss, but I see the concept existing outside the movie as well. To me, that idea kind of envelops both Bloom and Brick: Rian invented the worlds he wanted to inhabit.

Boy, I'm doing a really poor job at putting my thoughts into words. While watching the film, I kept having the feeling that all of this impossible stuff was actually plausible...that there's some circle of people in the world who dress like Marcello Mastroianni, travel to exotic locales, and commit crimes in a gentlemanly fashion. Bloom is not an elegy for a past era or a screed against today's ugliness and brutality, it's a uniquely personal vision of a different and more interesting version of today's world. You don't have to accept what's around you; everyone has the authority to re-make the world to fit their vision. It holds true for the Brothers, for Brendan, and even for Rian, who didn't write scripts for the marketplace but instead wrote for his own world where hard-boiled detective flicks and con man movies were still viable.

Ech, all this shit made more sense in my head. Hopefully it'll mean something to someone.

Again, dug the movie. Tons of fun. Gotta see it again.

This is making me want to go back to Canter's...
