The French trailer for "The Bridge of San Luis Rey."
  • This Thornton Wilder book was must reading on our summer reading lists when I was in prep school, and was universally considered to be the most boring book on the list.
  • It has a monster cast, featuring DeNiro, Keitel, and ol' F. Salieri himself.
  • "It opens in the aftermath of an inexplicable tragedy--a tiny foot-bridge in Peru breaks, and five people hurtle to their deaths. For Brother Juniper, a humble monk who witnesses the catastrophe, the question in inescapable. Why those five? Suddenly, Brother Juniper is committed to discover what manner of lives they led--and whether it was divine intervention or a capricious fate that took their lives."

We love this headline: "Ben looking for actors." "Ben Affleck is looking for two actors to take the leading roles in his big screen directorial debut. Affleck is adapting Dennis Lehane's best-selling book Gone, Baby Gone into a screenplay, as well as directing."
  • I reckon his problem so far is that he does not actually recognize acting when he sees it, so he keeps trying to hire morticians and grocery baggers.

  • the fast food industry for being more interested in food sales than his theater work
  • the Bush administration for being more interested in the Middle East than his theater work
  • the entire scientific community for being more interested in those stupid and insignificant microbes and electrons than his theater work ...
  • ... except for that one astronomer at Stanford who proved conclusively that Ewan's theater work was the center of the universe.
