but keeps chugging along, putting out one great film after another. Whoever's holding up that Matewan S.E. DVD should be strung up by his fucking ankles. Not to mention ANY DVD of City of Hope, which is Sayles' masterpiece. Hell, since I'm putting together a wish list, I wouldn't kick a film of Los Gusanos out of bed either.

I hope they eventually decide to have fun and do it.

1) This few comments on a very impressive, extra-long interview with one of the greatest American filmmakers is, I'll put it mildly, disappointing. I know this is a geek-film-heavy blog (and I'm as geeky as anyone, or I wouldn't be here!), but this is John Freakin' Sayles, people! 2) I love City of Hope, but I've got to go with Lone Star as his masterpiece. Just feels a bit more perfectly, tightly structured and themed than City. But I suppose with this login name, this opinion isn't a great surprise.

I gotta say, this is the kind of interview that I really like. I think it may actually be the best Sayles interview I've ever read; you get a great sense of how he approaches this project, who his collaborators are and what they bring to the table, and the movie looks way cool. I hadn't heard of the project before this, and now I'm really looking forward to it. Awesome interview. Great job.

looking forward to seeing this in Toronto next week. As for his masterpiece, I love Lonestar, but I gotta go with Matewan.

Sayles is a god amongst men, Matewan is by far his opus.

and how 1) it was going to be Spielberg's follow-up to CE3K...2) how the ending of the script inspired E.T...3) how M. Night Shyamalan regurgetated his script as SIGNS years later...Oh and how Spielberg strong-armed FX maestro Rick Baker and shut his studio down and how Carlo Rambaldi ended up with Baker's designs of the aliens.
