One of our writers is reviewing it for our September issue. I've heard pretty bad things :lol:

Has anybody seen this yet...now??
I'm not really interested in spending the money but I'm curious to hear a critique from someone other than a critic.

If this is the one I'm thinking of, I've heard absolutely terrible things about it...at the Cannes festival I believe like three quarters of the audience walked out and it got the lowest rating ever.
A lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks. Do you think when Jesus comes back he ever wants to see a fuckin' cross? It's kind of like going up to Jackie Onassis with a rifle pendant on.

Yes, that's true. I've heard a lot of bad things about it but Vincent Gallo has never been a Hollywood favorite. I really liked Buffalo 66 and I don't think that got good reviews when it came out either.

A friend of mine saw it last night and said it was absolutely terrible, the most tedious movie he'd ever seen. And he went in excited about it!

Vincent Gallo is in Glassjaw's video "Cosmopolitan Bloodloss".

From what I've heard about this film, the phrases "word of mouth" and "it sucks" are apt descriptions of the plot. Plus Roger Ebert loved it, and we know how he feels about celebrity skin.

Actually, Roger Ebert hated it, calling it the worst film ever to be shown at the Cannes Film Festival.

Word of mouth. It sucks. The puns just don't stop. You guys blow me away.

Is Vincent Gallo's appearance in a Glassjaw video supposed to be an endorsement of his new film? I'm not trying to be thick, WHAR, I just really don't understand if the two are connected somehow.

The video was released a couple of years ago.

Daryl Palumbo is people who knows people, and he jumped at the opportunity to have Vincent Gallo in their video for "Cosmopolitan Bloodloss". The original version of the music video had Vincent Gallo violently killing the band with a revolver- but this had to be edited out to a simple stand down. Kids these days. :roll:

Wow -- I hadn't heard that. Oddly enough, the print ads for the film say "Thumbs up! Poetic and elegaic. -- Roger Ebert, Ebert and Roeper". My bad for trusting advertising.

Speaking of Ebert, did any of my fellow Dylan fans see Masked and Anonymous? I keep putting it off.

It's pretty bad, but worth it to see him get in a fight with Jeff Bridges.

I think this was actually a bit of a 'thing' awhile ago...they used his name and said he liked it when he actually didn't.

Because you are a Dylan fan I will recommend it just because we Bobheads are contractually obligated to see this rather perverse psychodrama. It's bad but not the worst film he's ever done by any stretch. That be Hearts of Fire by a country mile. The whole thing with Angela Bassett's character was pretty laughable (there supposed to be roughly the same age) and one of the "bonus" scenes shows a fawing young woman telling Bob/Jack Fate how much he has meant to her and then they have sex. Between that and the Victoria's Secrets ad, I think Bob needs to donate some free time to working for a Battered Housewives shelter to repair his image.

Either that or go back to playing the guitar and put out a quality album.

For my money, Bob's given us enough albums to be satisfied with. If he has another, that's great but how much can you reasonable expect from one man? Time Out of Mind and Love & Theft are both significant albums that have occured during a stage in his career where most of his peers have long stopped being anywhere near as interesting or relevant. If Bob does have arthritis then there isn't anything he can do about playing guitar although it does create a weird situation for fans who can't see him any other way than holding a guitar. Watching the bonus dvd footage of the Rolling Thunder set where he stomps on stage sans guitar is almost discombopulating because it's nothing something you're used to seeing him do.

Very true. I still have a lot of catching up to do, too. So I'm not sure why I'm so anxious.

Thanks for the input, Vez and Blue. Since I once actually paid $3 (and 90 minutes of my life I'll never get back) to rent Hearts Of Fire, I'll not go out of my way for this one. Though the version of Cold Irons Bound (from the movie) is pretty cool.

I was very happy with both Time Out Of Mind and Love And Theft, though the latter will always remind me of the aftermath of 9/11. We waited four years between those albums, so hopefully something new next year?
