When Good Directors Go Bad #18 + Famous Last Words Round 2, Week 2

Although strangely enough, I probably feel more affection for this week's selection than any of those I've chosen for the series thusfar. Funny, that.

Also this week:

YouTube Cabinet of Curiosities: Candy From Castro- from the titanically strange If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do? The only thing to say is... holy crap.

PTA's Milkshake: Damn Right, It's Better Than Yours- because every article about a big-name auteur can only be improved by a dated reference to an overplayed five-year-old song.

DVD Digest for January 15, 2008- featuring the Postwar Kurosawa box set, Syndromes and a Century, a bunch of classics, and for those of you with a great deal more money than sense, Good Luck Chuck and Mr. Woodcock.

Trailer Roundup Review: Fool's Gold. 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days. Leatherheads.

Finally, I'm going to cross-post Famous Last Words here for those who can't access the Screengrab site for various reasons. The two major difference between the original game and its new Screengrab incarnation are: (a) answers must now be submitted by 11:59 PM on WEDNESDAY instead of Saturday, and (b) the new address for submissions is Otherwise, pretty much the same.

Last week's quote was from GoodFellas, in case you were wondering. Here's this week's quote:

"The end is important in all things."

Good luck!
