Whatever You Do, Don’t Choose “The Human Centipede.” A woman asked Roger Ebert what movie she should watch during outpatient surgery, and the obvious choice is a movie that’s visually dazzling and allows you to tune out for long stretches at a time.  Sweetheart, that means “Miami Vice” or busto.  -DM [Ebert]

Days of Heaven, obvs.

Glengarry Glen Ross (1992)

Mament wrote this scene specifically for the movie and specifically for Baldwin. Try watching this right before an episode of 30 Rock. It’s weird!

Reblog and do likewise.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close films around Brooklyn

evan:

This Gothamist article only mentions Brooklyn, but it looks like scenes from the film adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close are also being filmed in Manhattan… directly outside Tumblr HQ, no less.

I never got around to reading that one, but I loved Everything is Illuminated.

John Goodman, pls stop by Tumblr HQ after you wrap for the day…

To me, part of the power of The Social Network is that you could take any dozen people who like it — who think that it’s flawlessly written, directed, and acted — and find that they don’t necessarily agree on what the movie is saying: what its true take is on the Facebook revolution, or whether the Mark Zuckerberg it portrays is more of an awesomely driven yet loutish betrayer or a visionary renegade-brain hero. That’s what makes The Social Network, to me, the kind of movie that you can watch over and over again, like All the President’s Men or Sweet Smell of Success. That, I thought, is what the praise for it was all about. It’s enough to make me wonder whether the Oscar-death-by-deflating-pinpricks it’s now on the receiving end of is really the covert expression of a hostility to any movie that is daring, and artful, enough to ask for our engagement without showing us its hand.

Owen Gleibermann, Social Network lover, wants to lead the backlash-to-the-backlash movement. (via entertainmentweekly)

Hmm. This, of course, assumes that there are in fact at least a dozen people who think that The Social Network was flawlessly written, directed and acted.
