December 21-25, 2001

Archived update from Cigarettes & Coffee, run by Greg Mariotti & CJ Wallis from 1999-2005

There's plenty of discussion about Hard Eight in an article about Reno & its place in movies. You can check out here. writer Bill Simmons is at it again. He talks about his love of Boogie Nights & DVD in his latest column. Check it out here. (Thanks Ian, Chas!)
I've received multiple emails regarding the similarity of a scene from Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's 11 & the casino scene during the prologue of Magnolia. Elliott Gould's flashback sequence in Ocean's 11 is quite similar right down to the freeze frame of a guy getting smacked in the face. It could be homage (to PTA or other directors), since PTA has clearly been influenced by the likes of Demme, Ophuls & Scorsese.
