Reminds me of Harry Knowles "Doubt" review that goes off into left field:
Knowles wrote:
Of course I sympathized with Hoffman's character - as there was a point in my life where I caught a ranch hand on my mother's ranch stealing tools and guns, and had to go to school. By the time I returned from school, the ranch hand told my mother that he saw me molest my sister - and my mother being an alcoholic emotional wreck, had the ranchhands beat me with riding crops till my back bled while being forced into brutal manual labor with a post-hole digger.

The next day I told her what had happened, the ranch hand in question had left and she discovered that I was telling the truth (as many of her guns had in fact been stolen and tools taken) and I was proved innocent. BUT that doesn't take away the rather terrifying experience that the mere whisper of wrongdoing did and the harsh memories that I will always carry from that experience.

Whoa the fuck?

And, like Doubt, there's no proof that Knowles didn't molest his sister. But we'll give him the benefit of the... well, you know...

Everyone keeps busting out the Wes Anderson comparison, so I've got to ask, does anyone know if Mr. Anderson himself has yet seem this film, or what he thinks of the remarks that it is made in his "style"? I'm curious...

"What are the chances of running into the same well-known actress twice at totally disparate events over a 24-hour period? And I did figure it would be wussy not to check and make sure what I'd been told was correct. Eat my ass."

It's too bad that the well-known actress wasn't keeping an Appointment in Samarra.

"That's why I was so surprised to see you earlier, knowing I would be killing you at the restaurant later, and I thought, what are the chances of running into the same tactless critic at totally disparate events in the same 24-hour period?"

My favorite part is when he responds to negative comments: he's rude and belligerent, and usually sneaks in at least one obscene comments such as "eat my ass."

I am totally listening to that...on the plane home from LA.

I have been studiously avoiding interviews and reviews until I see the movie, and as such I am going to have so. much. reading material after this weekend.

There is a spoiler or 27 in there, so if you want to go in clean, avoid until later.

Thank you, Justin! I was 20 minute in when I decided to check the forums again. PHEW!

Q&A with Adrien Brody

No spoilers, but--hell!--I'm the only one who hasn't seen it yet, anyway, so what difference does it make?

I don't think Olivia has seen it yet. Oh, and neither has my mother.
