Though, good call on letting Khan do the editing. He's been genetically engineered for such projects.
I forgot to ask earlier, what didn't you like about it?

Did it need more Ricardo Montalban?

I based it off of the cast of The Royal Tenenbaums, which was about 10 deep. It can work.

Good calls on Josh Brolin and Robert Forster.

I like it Lance minus Tom Cruise.

LOVE Michelle Yeoh in a western setting!
And you stole my music director! John Murphy FTW.

Glad you like. Michelle Yoeh was my favorite casting pick in that whole film.

Tom Cruise can be a damn amazing actor in the right circumstances. Anyway, I had him in mind as an extremely small role in this film, something like businessman with 5-10 minutes of screen time.

I understand what you're saying, but I think you're just wrong. I mean, there is never any Micheal Corleone-level of growth as far as characters go, but I can't really see how your argument applies to PT films. The cast in Boogie Nights went through plenty of change. They all started out as a naive, optimistic family swimming in the excess of the 70's. Then egos grow, ambititons swell, drugs hit the scene hard, and the strain becomes too much. We're treated to my favorite scene in the film where Macy's character kills his wife and himself, the moment we enter the 80's. The shit hits the fan. Our characters fail to adapt to the new climate, and hit their lifetime lows. PT captures the despair and choas of this time rather effectively I find. And ultimately they all realize the only way to survive is to stick to their original family values. Full circle no? I fail to see how he "never does anything" with these characters. Same goes for all his films.

THAT SAID, however. I do feel that Anderson doesn't put the main focus on his characters. First and foremost, he uses his visual craft (which is second to none these days) to tell the story. Whether it's the smutt film satire and visual etching of the two decades in Boogie Nights or the more abstract use of sound and color in Punch-Drunk Love, Anderson is always using the full capabilities as film as a medium to tell his story. Which is what I tend to look for more in films than pure narritive or character-driven writing, which should be of any surprise to anyone who is familiar with my preference in films.
Well this is something we'll just agree to disagree on. The story implied change but at no time do you feel the change. I suppose that is more on the actors and script than the director. I found all the characters to be static with only the plot implying that the characters are changing. The characters move through each struggle almost unemotionally. They are cold throughout all his films. As a director he has make the audience feel like the characters are different emotionally. I don't that in any of his films. The characters are like wallpaper. I guess we are seeing different things.

Reading your second paragraph I had to ask, 'why are you not a David Lynch fan again?' If you want abstract use of visuals and sound, David Lynch is your guy. I enjoy some of the visual things Andersen does but in a sense that hurts the film by helping the characters become more like wallpaper.

Yeah, I just can't see what you see in PT's characters. I've been racking my brain about this since you brought it up, and I can't not see/feel the changes these characters go through. The only case I can see is about half the characters in Magnolia (his weakest film in my opinion), but that's because that film is more like a snapshot in these people lifes as they are just falling over the edge of despair. There isn't room for change, we're just watching their last crash. So I guess that's the end that argument, you're right. We just see different things, which is still really cool.

As for Lynch. I'm pretty sure I'm never going to be satisfied until I "get it". I've tried watching 4 of his films now, and just couldn't finish any of them. But I'm going to keep trying. There is just too much love in his fans for the man, that I can't let myself miss out. Maybe I should try Twin Peaks next?

I nearly used Angus Wall for my Mann film. I'd watch it.

Which ones? The Elephant Man and The Straight Story are his more conventional films to begin with if you really do want to get into his work. I haven't seen Twin Peaks yet either, but that will change when I get another rental account.

Also, will Tom Cruise get shot in the mouth to do something about that shit eating grin he always has?

EDIT - and thanks for the props guys.
