News say that Steven Spielberg will begin to direct a film about TINTIN.
He prepares in fact a trilogy.

( Steven often declared that Indiana was a substitute for TINTIN)....

(Philippe de Broca employed also a substitute with JP Belmondo in "The Man from Rio"  and " Adventures (tribulations , is it english?) of a Chinese in China"  )

I didn' see this film but I'm wondering:

1° why ,still in 2004, American people and more generally Occidental  people including Europe need a "white ambassador" to understand and appreciate others civilizations and races ?  Why not DIRECTLY? is it so difficult for us ?

Remember Peter O'Toole , Kevin Costner... and now Tom Cruise . They are all like cosmonauts discovering Arabs, Sioux   and Japanese in a new planet  .

Except for  "Tiger and Dragon", large public is not ready to appreciate foreign actors playing in foreign films.

Too bad

I just red that there is an Hollywood project about the life and death of CHE.
 Director; Terence Malick
Actor:Benicio Del Toro .
Not so bad . May be another "Frida" ?

In any case this film will be best than the horror made immediately after CHE death, with Omar Sharif and Jack Palance (as Castro) which was pure propaganda  IMO

In this cinema in my hometown, they sell "Good bye Lenin" door mats and T-shirts and stuff like that...  German movie merchandise!! How often do you see that?

German merchandising seems often very strong: OUITW DVD for example is terrific

 Sorry but I insist about "Good Bye Lenin" . It is not a blockbuster but:

6 millions German peoples saw it .
1 millions in France.
I dont know how many in the others countries but it is one of the biggest success in Europe during 2003

This Film received or will receive many awards.

The script is very original, actors pretty good, emotions and ostalgy (nostalgy for "Ost") very surprising ::)

Has somebody sawn it ? I f you did not yet I recomand it

I don't know but my guess is that these two men were
never in the same part of the world working wise.

Sure deMaie, but Sergio began to work in USA for OUTIW and met some people: Carpenter, Millius... I 'm wondering if "the profession" was not  a little bit snob with him except Clint, Eli ( who convinced Henry), Lee..

However I think that Sergio well knew Sam Peckinpah work and was a fan ("the wild bunch" in My name is..." :)

Kerm, Angel Eyes, you are right.

In fact "What opinion Sergio had about himself ?"  could be a good quote.

I'm sure that Sergio has suffered about his own image

  - What was his importance within the Italian Movie at this time , which was very brilliant ( Pasolini, Visconti, Ferreri, Antonioni..)

  - idem  within the American Movie , French Movie...,Japanes

Peckinpah didn't say a word about him, Melville declared"I dont like Sergio Leone, Kubrick absolutely ignored him.

I mean that till OUATIA ,Leone success was a popular success but Spagh was considered as B Movie.

Happily minds are changing.i

What your feeling about ?   :)

Anyway, stupid of me to bring up Trier in a Leone Forum. Worlds apart. Whereas Trier wants to renew and develop the focus on the script and the actors and their "feelings", often exploring extreme psychological territories, Leone is a "music" and "setting"-kind of director and his Western characters are not really about feelings. They are about prototypes and pastiche.

Please Burberry, on the contrary it is very clever to speak about  others Directors (and Lars is a great one) .  I like our website ALSO for the cultural exchanges and links. 8)

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re:The best movie ever made...
« on: January 14, 2004, 08:20:40 AM »
Hello Friends,

 It is not the first time we discuss together about "the best film...". IMO there is a big difference between to say" The film I  prefer"(subjective) and  "the best film  in Movie history" (objective).
        If we consider that Movie is an Art, and a complete one, we must be careful before to declare that "Attack of the Clones" or " my son filmed by the neighbour" is the best film ever made.
        For example who could seriously say that "The best  paintor" ... is my father because I love the portrait of my pet he made.If we talk about paintors , people would speak about Picasso, van Gogh or Modigliani... I suppose.
        Remember that Sergio himself was very modest in comparision with FORD, HAWKS, STURGES and others( Western only) and dozen of others great Directors he deeply respected himself.  :P

Dear GuyBrush.

  A Film about Black Dahlia ? Good news !  Directed by De Palma  ? Bad news ( I.M.O.)

  What actors we could choose for this film, it s a good question:
    The three guys playing in L.A Confidential ( Kevin Spacey, Russel Crowe)  were pretty good no ?
About L.A C,  I was a little bit disappointed by the film because the Director didn't succeed to re-create the pure madness of the Ellroy'world.Same comment about "COP" with the great Jimmy Wood.
   I more easily met this madness in some parts of others films : Seven, The cop Michael Douglas in Black Rain and Basic Instinct ,Mickey Rourke in Year of the Dragon.

   After watching Mystic River I select the young cop , and Sean Penn.
