Re: The Lawsuits Thread

This is out in left field, I know, but a big, overdue thank you to Inquiring Minds for your uplifting but realistic take on the potential impact of the scheduled week-long judicial break during the trial. Your analysis was welcome and, as always, so well presented! :bouquet:

MINAMATA Updates

I know, gipsyblues, I know. :daisyforyou I am sad these days to my very core. I seem to go through each day with tears in my eyes more often not. The plight of Minamata is beyond unsettling. The myriad injustices rained upon this bit of brilliant cinematic art - and, of course, upon the iconic actor...

MINAMATA Updates

At the link below is an excellent interview with Andrew Levitas. He speaks extensively and deeply about the filming of Minamata, the choices they made and why they made these particular choices and how Johnny chose to present Eugene and why. It's a good one: https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2022/02...

MINAMATA Updates

There are 11,874 movie theaters (not screens) in the US. Minamata is today being released in 26(!) of those venues and will show for a whole week!

Worse than stomach turning, it is downright insulting.

Johnny Depp Launches NFT Collection

Johnny has had his entire world - personal, professional, and financial - ripped out from beneath him. He saw some of it coming but it was far too late. He has suffered beyond anything we can imagine for his misplaced trust. But Johnny is an extraordinarily intelligent, talented and resilient man. M...

MINAMATA Updates

Look, it's absolutely fine that Minamata probably won't be in the Oscars. The film has all sorts of other awards from other countries where the film industry is able to identify an electrically compelling movie. That ain't here -- the US is all about making money from shlock material that retreads ...

….Personally I'll be astonished if this is nominated for anything - Hollywood is scared of its own shadow now - I would love to be wrong but the anti-JD lobby is overwhelming in a town where vested self interest and corrupt money rules… Your comments, AdeleAgain, are hard to read but I have to ackn...

Thank you, fireflydances, for all your information, suggestions, and your infectious power of positive thinking.

MINAMATA Updates

Thanks, fireflydances, for the update. I, too, am on the east coast but it is reassuring to know Minamata distribution is moving beyond the initial LA “opening” venues.
