Unexpected Challenges

Eleventh-hour reshuffling by not one but¬†two¬†distributors this week means you don’t get to see my pieces on either “Bob and the Monster” or “Red Lights”. (And I have the sense you’ll be lucky to see either one grace a Toronto screen any time soon.)

But all is not lost! There’s still my contribution to the August edition of NOW’s Hot Summer Guide, and a callback to my April interview with Alison Klayman, director of “Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry”, which begins its Toronto commercial run tomorrow.

Oh, and I wrote this MSN Movies gallery about other movies based on the works of Philip K. Dick for our “Total Recall” minisite. Added value!

    1. It’s all the digital tweaking to fix things that don’t need fixing, up to and especially including Joanna Cassidy’s face on the stuntman. The ’92 cut is a strictly utilitarian reconstruction of the film as Scott originally intended; the ’97 cut is subtle revisionism disguised as a clean-up.

      I have the same objection to the 2000 cut of “The Exorcist” — yeah, let’s throw some morphing in there, because that’s TOTALLY what we meant to do in 1973.
