Wendy: Not a lot of jobs around here, huh?
Security Guard: I’ll say. I don’t know what the people do all day. Used to be a mill. But that’s been closed a long time now. Don’t know what they do.
Wendy: You can’t get a job without an address anyway. . .or a phone.
Security Guard: You can’t get an address without an address. You can’t get a job without a job. It’s all fixed.
Wendy: That’s why I’m going to Alaska. I hear they need people.
Security Guard: I hear it’s really pretty up there.
Wendy: Yeah.

Emily Tetherow: You don’t know much about women, do you Stephen Meek?
Stephen Meek: Well, I, I know somethin’ or other.
Emily Tetherow: If you say so.
Stephen Meek: Well, I know women are different from men. I know that much. Well, I’ll tell you the difference if you care to hear.
Emily Tetherow: I don’t doubt you will.
Stephen Meek: Women, women are created on the principle of chaos. The chaos of creation, disorder, bringing new things into the world. Men are created on the principle of destruction. It’s like cleansing, ordering, destruction. You think I’m wrong, you can tell me. Chaos and destruction. Those two genders are always at it.

Marilyn Monroe: Why is Sir Olivier so mean? He talks awful to me, like he’s slumming.
Colin: I’ll tell you what’s wrong. It’s agony for him because he’s a great actor that wants to be a film star, and it’s agony for you because you’re a film star who wants to be a great actress. And this film won’t help either of you.

New Trailer for “My Week With Marilyn”


This is one of my most anticipated films of the year. The cast looks divine, anchored by what looks to be another fabulous turn by Michelle Williams as the world’s most famous blonde. I have been a huge Marilyn Monroe fan for about ten years now. I think she is one of the most under-appreciated actresses and misunderstood people of the twentieth century. I hope this film does her justice.

You can watch the trailer here at Yahoo! movies. The film is set to have its world premiere at the New York Film Festival on October 9th and will open in theaters on November 4th in the United States and November 18th in the UK.

New Poster For “Blue Valentine”


This film has had strong buzz, especially for Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams’ performances, since it debuted at Sundance in January. It has since receive an NC-17 rating, which is currently being appealed in hopes of an R rating without having to do any cuts. I’m a fan of both Gosling and Williams and simply cannot wait to see this film. As an added perk for me, and perhaps others, Brooklyn based band Grizzly Bear composed the score to the film. It’s due to have a limited release in theaters in the United States on December 31st.
