but in a way,the pending "BOYCOTT HEDWIG' international punk action will draw attention to JAYNE COUNTY,where it's truly deserved(www.jaynecounty.com) as opposed to an'andrew lloyd weber' rendition of a real life!(the mass public will flock to 'dedwig' like they flocked to'flawless'-NOT>one more step to NEW LINE becoming NO LINE!

Perhaps since Moriarty see that they have the same surname, or perhaps he was just offering a sarcastic jab toward Zhang Yimou's affinity for young starlets for his films. For a frankly far better review of The Road Home by Elaine, see http://www.aintitcool.com/display.cgi?id=7027 .

Zhang Ziyi and Zhang Yimou are not married; nor do they share the same family name. Their names may be transcribed similarly, but they're different characters with different meanings altogether. (Oh, and thanks for the vote of confidence, Virtualight...)

Thanks for taking the time to watch "The Doe Boy" at Sundance. Regardless of your feelings about the movie, I appreciate them and the opportunity to respond, which I hope not to make a habit of mine. Chris Eyre is not the executive producer of the film, he is a producer. He was not the writer of "Smoke Signals" either, that was Sherman Alexie. Just thought you'd want to get these facts right. I will say that you are the first reviewer to concentrate so heavily on the dialogue in writing about "the doe boy". I love the lines, but this movie is told mainly in it's silence (Jimmy says almost nothing for the last fifteen minutes). I wanted it to be more of an allegorical cave painting than a soap opera. The film is set in the 80's because it is autobiographical and i'm 34. You may be right about the period being understated to a fault, but that has to do with time and money. Thanks again and great website ya'll. rr
