"Joaquin Phoenix’s Commodus in Gladiator was certainly an inspiration for my characterization of Joffrey, that had a big impact, the smirk. It’s interesting sometimes  when an audience can empathize with a villain.

We learned a lot about Johnny Depp today.

True Stories (1986). Directed by and starring David Byrne. Co-starring John Goodman, Swoosie Kurtz, and Spalding Gray.

Roger Ebert began his review of the film by writing “There are more than 50 sets of twins in David Byrne’s ‘True Stories,’ I learned by studying the press notes, and perhaps we should pause here for a moment to meditate upon that fact.

Consider the state of mind of the person who decided the film should have 50 sets of twins.”
