This guys is amazing. He's the only Leone collaborator whose name I stumble upon every week. He seems to be attached to half the cool projects I ear about.

It was interesting that Di Caprio & Inarrito praised Milchan for championing & sticking by The Revenant - by all accounts  a tricky and troubled production and a project that seemingly had been around Hollywood for years - I guess the next Big challenge for Mr Milchan will be getting "The Crowded Room" off the ground - another legendary/tricky project that has also been around for years and has attracted the likes of John Cusack, James Cameron & Di Caprio at various points.

Really surprising news - was following the story and the consensus seemed to be that  it was a bit of a fishing expedition
and would practically be impossible to prove they were bribes (not gifts) mmmm🤔

Wasn't this film essentially a re-make of "Man in the Wilderness" ?

Not really. It's based on the same events.

True, the remake was head scratchingly RICIDULOUS but beatutifully shot.

Arnon must be relieved that Harvey took all the attention away from his arms dealing.
