STRANGER THAN FICTION is a forthcoming film starring Emma Thompson, Will Farrel, and Dustin Hoffman. It’s a comedy, or a tragedy, or a drama….in fact, that is something that the main character, portrayed by Will Farrel, has to uncover — is he living a comedy or a tragedy — or both? The preview screening I saw the other night at SONY studios was a "work in progress" — no opening or closing credits, temporary music, and possibly provisional sound. I loved it. If the final product is as good as the preview, everyone should be well pleased.
I’ve been on a real movie marathon lately — seeing all manner of films at the Directors Guild and at the TV Acadamy. SYRIANA, done in the same multi-story but it all comes together style as TRAFFIC, features strong performances but no resolution….long lines, long movie….
The real standout is THE PRODUCERS — DON"T MISS THIS ONE!! IT is an absolute joy!
