Monday musing

I spent nearly five hours on the set of Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus last night, braving the cold, watching him film one very long scene, interviewing Terry and several cast members, and generally having a blast. While now's not the time to go into much detail regarding the film, which he co-scripted with Charles McKeown who co-wrote Brazil and The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen, I'm happy to report that it felt very much like old school Gilliam, circa Time Bandits or even Munchausen, certainly in terms of the tone and of the visual invention that was on display. More, as and when...

This week's a packed one: I'm seeing a couple of horror films I've been looking forward to for a long while and a double doss of spooky Spanish horror: The Orphanage (tonight) and Rec (tomorrow). Then there's the Sweeney premiere on Thursday, as well as other assorted Sweeney related stuff and some writing that needs to be attended too. Not to mention the odd interview. And a couple of football matches to squeeze in. Going to be busy...

I've just read that the Golden Globes were cancelled!! What do you think about that? Can it be the same with the Oscars? (that's a shame because Tim Burton and Johnny Depp were nominated!)
