PTA & Bennett Miller Text Over How Much Digital Sucks, Apparently


Weird quick late non-news-related update we found amusing.

Michael Phillips of The Chicago Tribune is wrapping up his coverage of the Toronto International Film Festival and today he had an interesting name-drop in his writing.

In talking with filmmaker Bennett Miller about his much-buzzed-about new film Foxcatcher, which earned him the Best Director award at Cannes this year, the conversation turned to another famous winner of that same award.
Miller clearly knows how to work a roomful of media types without acting like a showboater or coming off like a man undergoing a root canal. He's a low-key fellow who sweats the details of his projects. We talked for a bit last weekend, and what he really wanted to talk about wasn't "Foxcatcher" but the drastically limited avenues of shooting on film, and projecting it, in the digital age.
In Toronto Miller told me straightforwardly, "I think we were better off as filmmakers 100 years ago." He does not prefer shooting digitally. He doesn't like the postproduction process as much now. And the clinical crispness of digital projection bugs him.
Miller picked up his iPhone midconversation and started fishing around for some recent texts. Look here, he said. Read these. They were from Paul Thomas Anderson, whose latest film, "Inherent Vice," plays the New York Film Festival next month.
The texts picked up a conversation Miller and Anderson had earlier the same day, about the inferiority of digital. The vitriol came through in every unpunctuated word.
No direct quotes from either PTA or Miller's texts were lifted for the piece, but it would be nice to think they contained emoji equations like these:

      GIVE ME A TRAILER!

    2. It's frankly ludicrous that there isn't a trailer. The movie is premiering at NYFF in less than 20 days and it is coming to theaters in limited release in less than 3 months. It really doesn't make sense to me.

    3. The thought of his fans squirming makes PTA hard.

    4. Well as long as he's hard I'm cool with it.

  2. This is a website honoring PTA. I want to go into his films not expecting a single thing. Trailers are spoilers. I trust that he most likely made something awesome and will see his films no matter what.

    2. This is a website honoring PTA. --- Honoring is the wrong word I think. It makes it sound like he's dead or something.

      I want to go into his films not expecting a single thing. --- Ok.

      Trailers are spoilers. - Nope. Bad trailers are spoilers. PTA makes some of the best trailers out there. The Master trailers didn't give much away at all.

      I trust that he most likely made something awesome and will see his films no matter what. --- Ok.

      Anyway, weird comment...

    2. Ughhhh.

      Sorry, I figured it was safe to report since the guy writes for Variety. Fucking tease. I don't even know if I can trust him saying it'll be closer to NYFF, but you have to figure it can't be much longer than that to wait....

      ....uh, right?

  5. Anyone know the story behind this tweet yesterday?

    "A Fan Asked Paul Thomas Anderson About His Long Hair. What Happened Next Will Move You To Tears"

    1. Yeah, I was wondering about that too. My first thought was that it might have something to do with Phil Hoffman. Growing his hair and beard out in mourning or something. :/

    2. It's simply a joke tweet riffing on all those click bait links that tend to pop in facebook feeds and in the side columns of websites.
      They always end in "you won't believe what happened next" or "what happened next will bring a tear to your eye". It's always like - a deaf person hears for the first time or a dog and a fox are best friends or some shit.

    3. I like how Timothy said "it's simply a joke tweet riffing on all those click bait links that tend to pop in facebook feeds and in the side columns of websites."

      That's not SIMPLY anything.

    4. With the tweet they were taking the piss, it IS that simple.

  7. The next FILM of Paul's should be kept an absolute secret, even from us. One trailer is made. It's releases during Superbowl weekend. The movie releases the next Friday.

    Wishful thinking. A little birdie did hear that this trailer we want "is being released soon. (Rather than later).".

  23. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
