Quote from: Noodle Lizard on October 21, 2019, 08:36:07 PMIt's a bad sign when Morris's interviews, where he basically just explains the true stories that inspired it with great eloquence and insight, are significantly more interesting than the film itself.
Quote from: Noodle Lizard on October 22, 2019, 08:36:42 PMthe only criticisms I've seen have essentially been about it not being effective enough.
Quote from: sponk on October 23, 2019, 04:40:06 PMAnyone else get the feeling that Chris knows the film is a bit shite and is reluctant to push it too hard on interviews? I think he's doing promotion to honour the backers who funded the film, but deep down he'd be happy for it to sink into obscurity.

Quote from: Glebe on October 30, 2019, 06:00:17 AMIt's already gone from all my local cinemas... what's even more frustrating about this is that I saw Joker (in 70mm) at the Irish Film Institute last week and it was playing in the screening room opposite. Bugger.

Quote from: EBGB on October 30, 2019, 06:31:31 AMHow annoying. Still more unhelpfully, I think in a number of cinemas the decision was made to swap out TDSC for extra screenings of 'Joker'. The Barbican in London had been plugging TDSC as scheduled from release, but then it suddenly disappeared completely from the listings even before Oct 11th. And I saw various complaints on social media from people who'd travelled a decent distance (two hours, in one case) for screenings around the UK only to find it had been pulled. I learned the hard way a few years ago with 'The Master' that this happens - I get that it's a business decision, but it's incredibly unsupportive of more niche films, which surely undermines the long term case for independent cinemas?Also, the non-CM publicity campaign was rubbish. There's flying below the radar when making the thing, but it seems like an awful lot of fans didn't know about the film until after release. When it's only shown for 1-2 weeks anywhere, that's not helpful. I'd still like to know why the release date was shifted from Sep 27th - I wonder if that impacted coverage and cinema scheduling?
QuoteWith The Day Shall Come nine years in the making, Jon asked the burning question: what's next for Chris? "I've got various projects I'm working on. There are certain subjects that exceed the bounds of film and are better as a six part series. I'm open to either!"
QuoteAsked by Jon whether it still holds true that comedy should have a purpose, Chris said: "Purpose can be internally self-justifying. You can use it to drive yourself through something if you need more than 'this might make people laugh.' You need an anger at something or a belief in trying to fix something, it is useful to get you through a lot of work."
Quote from: mojo filters on November 22, 2019, 03:35:28 AMOn The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell telecasting from 30 Rock in NYC tonight, Ron Klain (generic Democratic pundit, ex-chief of staff to VPs Al Gore and Joe Biden) just (presumably) unwittingly said with a curiously profound enunciation that the day shall come!Unfortunately he was just talking about ramifications of today's congressional impeachment testimony. I have no evidence he was also subtly referencing the film, but it would be nice to think the audience and appreciation is wider than we think...
