Megalopolis - @HarryArchieGus and maybe a few others along with me will be there day 1.

Who knows if this will ever come to the US in theaters. Lea Seydoux can just sit there and read a book and I would be there.

Yeah, Lea Seydoux is marvelous. I looked up filmmaker Quentin Dupieux and see that he was Mr. Oizo. What an interesting career. 

A new Coppolla is interesting, but I may wait for your review first. Francis has struggled to achieve much of interest in the last 3 decades. This does look interesting. Dustin Hoffman rears his cancelled head. So too Voight.

Quentin Dupieux's movies are on Mubi - I'll watch the ones that are up at some point. Yannick was out last year and takes an hour and some change to finish.

I'm hoping Coppolla's movie comes to Atlanta, but Atlanta tends to cycle arthouse films really quickly (like I missed the chance to see another of Lea Seydoux's movie - The Beast and missed seeing Stress Positions).

My Twitter seems to be full of negative stories about Coppola, including smoking tons of weed during filming and trying to kiss female extras before some party scene.

Robert Evans in his book said he couldn't edit his way out of a paper bag. . .

I respect your opinion, now here's mine.

Mad Max (1979) laid the foundation for the rest of the series.

It's probably the most normal in structure compared to the rest of the collection.

Max actually has a story arc in the first film, in the rest of the films he's just Mad Max.

It's one of my favorite vengeance films with a dystopian setting.

Oh, the film has always been about Goose.

 

fun fan theory.... all the films are different retelling of the legend of Mad Max. hence the differences

I mean, the last thing I saw by Coppola was that horror movie he made in his backyard with Val Kilmer, Elle Fanning, and Bruce Dern, and the most memorable thing about that film to me is that he stunt-cast Joanne Whalley as Kilmer's character's ex-wife...

Yeah, I only seen the standing ovations on Twitter. However, there is some context.

Quote

Audience members reportedly started booing after the film ended. However, according to World of Reel‘s Jordan Ruimy, the boos soon turned to cheers when an “In Memoriam” segment proceeded to play for Coppola’s late wife Eleanor. The director and cast then received a seven-minute standing ovation.

This is the first time I've seen something related to booing. I saw a story about silence, but it's been mostly about standing ovations. Then again, based on his output in recent-ish years, I don't think it would anything but divisive.

From what I'm seeing on Letterboxd from people I'm following that are at Cannes, we're gonna feast in the next several months for movies. It's 2023 Part II for what's coming out. There isn't anything like Oppenheimer or Barbie on the horizon, but there's good stuff (The Substance, On Becoming A Guineas Fowl, The Balconettes, Bird, Furiosa this Friday, etc)

Apparently Dan Snyder (former owner of the Washington NFL team) is an investor in the Donald Trump biopic with Sebastian Stan. But he's really angry because when he put his money in, he thought it was going to be a glowing, flattering portrayal, and it's not.

If you want to see another movie where Dwayne pees into bottles on set, you have this to look forward to.

This is done an A24 movie done by a Safdie brother, so this is gonna be batshit.

You know what would be a great wrestling move? Take all the wild road stories that are out there(or hell just Cornette's) and do a week(or day or whatever) in the life of a wrestler on the road in the territories. You wouldn't even need to get into sleaze thread bs, just the craziness of driving fast on the old high ways, pranks and what ever would make a fun movie. Add in a guy like gary Hart whipping out a straight razor to make sure he got his full payoffs and it would be a hellva flick.

Kind of like a pro-wrestling version of Slap Shot? Also, I thought Hart would whip out a straight razor whenever needed.

Maybe have some fictional wrestlers joining a few trips - it can be shot similar to The Plains but obviously different. They can complain about their payout for matches, the arena they went had broken ACs and cold showers, hotel they're staying has terrible coffee, etc.

The movie wouldn't be complete without having actors playing Kevin Nash, The Iron Sheik, Dutch Mantell and Sid Vicious doing a car ride together. And Sid Vicious threatening Arn Anderson with a squeegee.

The perfect director would be Sean Baker obviously. He's captures life on the fringe of America quite well.

Give me a Richard Linklater goofy hangout wrestling movie.  Everybody Wants Some but it's set around the Sportatorium in like 1984.
