    @zanyzap He's my favorite modern director as well. He's the best right now, save for maybe Spielberg.

    @thedude-abides We should take @ejk1 out into the school yard and belittle him till he pisses his gym shorts.

    P. T. Anderson is probably my favorite director.

    @bawnian-dexeus It's not as good as his other movies, but considering it's his first effort, I'd say it's more than solid, and a very entertaining watch.

    This trailer definitely piqued my interest, though. Through its sheer weirdness.

    @bawnian-dexeus Yes. Definitely. He's channeling someone famous, but I can't quite put my finger on it. The resemblance is uncanny, I just wish I could pinpoint who it is...

    @dan1 At first I thought that was just how his character was going to be. Took me a minute to figure out he was drunk, lol.

    @dan1@thedude-abides Burn half his face and he could pass for Two-Face.

    @thedude-abides No, that's just how he is :P

    @dan1 Lol. Yeah he did. I think he's drunk in that scene.

    @thedude-abides@bawnian-dexeus He definitely looked cuckoo for cocoa puffs.

  22. thedude-abides

    @bawnian-dexeus Totally. I haven't really been interested in anything he's done since Walk the Line. Love the fact that he's back in a good role, in what is sure to be a great film.

    @thedude-abides The fact that Joaquin is back has me interested already

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Well, what people have to understand is that this trailer is probably taken from a single scene in the movie, minus the music, and pretty much serves as a tone-setter for the madness that is sure ensue in the film itself. It's just Anderson's way of f*cking with us 'till the film comes out, as he always does.
