We are the Sprocket Holes vol. 44

Alejandro Jodorowsky interview about King Shot

THIS will be a fucking film, people. not some 1/2 hearted 1/4 assed comic book adaptation from a know-nothing hack who might as well be directing perfume ads. not some needlessly jumpy pointlessly hateful intellectually crippled "horror/thriller" that is neither horrifying or thrilling. Not some overwritten self-consciously quirky piece of toxic marshmellow fluff that calls itself "indie-minded" while getting bankrolled by major corporations. NOT SOME FUCKING REMAKE.

you mouthy pipsqueeks can have your nerveless Watchmen adaptation, you're bottomless toilet of Saw/the Ring sequels/knock-offs, and Wes fucking Anderson. I'll be laughing in my head while i watch the gorgeous Asia Argento as filmed by Alejandro Jodorowsky, while you secretly ponder where it all went so fucking wrong in your life that you decided to not only except the lowest common denominator, but exalt it to the heights of wealth and relevancy.

Truth is, we don't deserve films of Jodorowsky's quality. Holy Mountain, El Topo, Santa Sangre, Fando Y Lis, are all so transcendent, so seductively otherworldly that i often feel like i'll never have a fraction of this man's imagination or talent... but it's okay, because he says everything i want to say better than i ever could. He makes dreams i wish i would have and puts them on film for me to fawn over.

i'm rambling... it's 2:30 am after all. This is just the most exciting movie news i've heard in a long time.

for the rest of you, i heard Rob Zombie's doing another Halloween.

*deafening fart*.
