PRESS RELEASE

Statement of Critic Man

On the films The Act of Killing and Blackfish

A streetcar named Woody


Woody Allen and some actors are sitting down for a table read of his script outline for his new film. It’s still being formed, but he has decided to give what he has so far a trial run and call it Blue Jasmine. The potential cast, who are all sitting around a large conference table, include Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins, Andrew Dice Clay, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Michael Stuhlbarg, Peter Sarsgaard, and a number of typically Woody-esque character actors with wonderfully unique faces.

Recalling summer 2013

The group HOLLOW Speak (which stands for Hollywood Only Listens and Learns Once We Speak) is circulating the following petition hoping to recall from theaters a number of massively expensive 2013 summer Hollywood blockbusters (movies that cost between $150 million and a $bazillion to make and market) that have failed to live up to their cinematic obligations. Although these movies lost at the box office, we are not confident that Hollywood will get the message and provide intelligent, more diverse summer output.

Open on a young boy in cowboy attire eating from a bag of peanuts while wandering Cheyenne Frontier Days. Intrigued by a Wild West exhibit complete with a buffalo image on the entrance tent, he goes in and finds a large room with a creaky wooden floor and exhibits lining the walls. Amazingly, he is alone as he wanders around looking at each life-sized diorama.
