This week’s NOW finds me talking to Stephen Dorff for the second time in almost nineteen years; as I explain in the piece, he and I previously met in the winter of 1992, when he was on the press tour for “The Power of One” and I was but a wee freelancer for the Toronto Star. Now, he’s the internationally known star of Sofia Coppola’s new film “Somewhere”, and I am somehow middle-aged and bald. I try not to take this personally.
Also, we received a wonderfully pissy letter about my “Film Socialisme” review, written by someone who clearly wasn’t going to let go of the insult he had in his head, no matter how incoherently it comes across on the page. Ten bucks says the guy didn’t even see the movie.
