happy holidays, yo!
With filmmaking being our ultimate goal, the five of us started getting together for movie nights. We want to watch films that inspired us in our more formative years and got us interested in "the biz" in the first place, as well as those that continue to inspire us today. This is all, of course, in an effort to create our own inspiring pic. Like "Three Amigos Dos" or something similar. (jk)
Last night, we saw "Barton Fink", a classic Cohen Bros. film. It's a hell of a commentary on the hell that is Hollywood and the whoring of talent for commercialized entertainment. Did you know the Cohens wrote "Fink" when they were struck with a bout of really bad writer's block writing "Miller's Crossing"?
We want to keep a running list for Dutch West movie nights. Here it is thus far:
O Brother Where Art Thou?
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Children of Men
We're movie buffs, but there might be a great flick out there that even we don't know about. What should we watch? Send us suggestions for films you think are so good, it's funny: email@example.com
