  12. Interesting and wonderful news.

    Venice Film Festival always has an interesting atmosphere since it's part of the Venice Bienniale. We'll see if it is hostile or receptive to VG, or if he is to it, etc. Most of the press and attention will probably go to Sofia Coppola's mundane snore of a movie, but who knows.

    How much press he'll so, what this will mean for a release in the US, if there was a financial motivation in the decision to show at a festival (like there was with BB and Cannes) or was he invited (like showing Buffalo 66 at the MoMA), is he looking for financiers or distributors or still going alone or does he already have backing, etc.

    I feel like a weirdo being so into the business/financial aspect of this movie, but ultimately that is what controls if a movie gets released, and sometimes even what the final cut is, and if you know this business, you know how it often goes for an interesting project with a limited audience. Great movies are made all the time that no one ever sees (I'm talking way beyond "indie" "art house" movies that have a niche audience). Although I think he is comfortable occupying that space outside of mainstream release/acclaim obviously, e.g. "I am giving zero attention to what the audience thinks. It's not that I resent them or don't care about them. I feel that if I am going to make my best work, I have to take that attitude ... I don't care if it ever gets released, I don't care if anyone ever likes it."

    Many things will be unfolding (or not developing) in the next few months. Fans and admirers have a lot to look forward to, I think.

  15. The press will go to other movies, but in the long run Gallo's movie will be thought of as better and more unique

    The original idea of making a film on the hoof, without much in the way of preparation was created entirely from Roberta Spirin. There was somehow a connection between an agency owner, Vincent Gallo and Roberta's ex husband and this is how her idea of making a highly conceptual film that was made without following a traditional program of production got stolen from her. Vincent Gallo is neither paying it proper respect nor giving her credit for anything. But let truth alone prevail. It may appear that truth is defeated but it can never be suppressed for ever. It will in the end surely prevail.




    Vincent Gallo stolen her idea and is not crediting her neither paying the girl

  18. Vincent a plagiarist? Never!

  19. Vincent Gallo is a total jerk and financially broke right now. What's the surprise? He definitely stole her original idea - just check her facebook profiles. She posted everything before hand. But honestly, i think everyone (that matters) already knows knows this.
