First of all, I can't believe I didn't find this (the forum) sooner.
Just got back from a four(ish) hour roundtrip drive down to Bethel, CT to see The Brothers Bloom in a tiny but adorable theatre with my production partner, Brian. What a fantastic movie - I was seriously blown away. The combined simplicities and complexities of this film were so much fun to sit through and try to guess at, and follow... I'm about to embark on producing my first feature (written and directed by my aforementioned partner) this summer, and I just wanted to thank Rian for seriously reminding me why I'm doing it and why I love the craft of film so damn much.
Also, can I say how much of a breath of fresh air it is to see a film with an original screenplay after sitting through... (three? I think?) straight franchise films in a row this past month? Thank god for independent cinema.
Anyway, it was well worth the drive -- and if it wasn't coming out near here Friday, I think we'd probably go straight back to Bethel to see it again!
Bethel! I lived there for a year when I was a lil' shaver. We were in a condo right up the street from Grassy Plains Elementary School, where Paul Newman shot his 1968 film Rachel, Rachel
Sorry for the interruption. Back to the salt mines, Bloom analysts!
