    “Up in the Air”, I believe. One of my favorites of the past few years.

    Regarding the insults, Tarantino is ten times the director that Jean-Luc Goddard, Spike Lee,and those other two will ever be combined. I’ve officially lost all respect for Goddard after reading his comments about Tarantino and Spielberg and I’ve lost some respect for Bergman. Anybody who says that about two great directors and then makes a movie like Film Socialisme needs to come back to reality. Vincent Gallo also sounds like an idiot. The only comment that’s justified is the one toward Michael Bay

    It’s interesting too that the great directors who were insulted like Scorsese, Spielberg, Kubrick, Tarantino, Antonini, and PT Anderson aren’t insulting anybody.

    Uwe Bowl is in no position to insult Bay though, considering his films are 111100000000000000000000000000000000000000 times worse then a Bay film.

    And I loved smith’s comeback to Burton, hilarious.

    Yeah. Filmmakers are total assholes. They wouldn’t be so brilliant if they weren’t.

    As for the poster, I absolutely love it! It really shows up pretty much every pathetic poster design in comparison.
