    You're telling me. One of my favorites. I met Kyle MacLachlan a few weeks ago.

    Dude, Crowe wrote Fast Times and directed Singles and Say Anything. He may not be wall-to-wall brilliant, but Almost Famous wasn't his only good work.

    A lot of painting and art projects. I saw him speak last summer about meditation.

    I really like Singles. A lot of people I know haven't heard of it.

    I do, too. It may be my favorite Crowe movie, even if it's not his best.

    I've noticed it's not very well known, as well. I suppose it never really got popular enough to be talked about much 20 years later, which is too bad, really. If nothing else, it was a really cool chronicle of the early-90s grunge scene. In fact, I believe all of the bands that appear in it - Pearl Jam in particular - were still nobodies on the national scene when the movie was made, then they happened to blow up right around its release.

    I am a big Campbell Scott fan. That is what brought me to it.. He was amazing in Roger Doger, and The Secret Lives of Dentists.

    +1, I love Campbell Scott.

    Interesting to see you talking about Singles, my wife and I were just talking about the scene with Matt Damon and Eddie Vedder in the cafe:

    We'd just left Portland for San Francisco when this came out, so the setting had a very familiar feel to it. I thought Singles was a hell of a lot better than Reality Bites.

    Ha! Javyn beat me to it.


    Part of the 80's fascination with military helicopter dramas. I still say that Airwolf is the most preposterous concept for a show ever.


    That is why I carefully chose the word directed. I don't like either of those other two movies.


    Me too. I love his cameo in The Daytrippers.

    After reading the profile piece on Whit Stillman in last week's issue of NY Times Magazine, I'm going to try and watch a couple of his other films besides Manhattan, which is one of my favorites. Anyone have any thoughts about Barcelona or Last Days of Disco?

    I liked Barcelona but I LOVED Last Days of Disco. One of my favorite comedies of all time. It's sort of over the top like all of Stillman's films (verbose dialogue, non-seqitors galore, superficial characters) but there's a melancholy that goes through it that seems really genuine, especially to anyone who has been through a period of mid-twenties angst. And the soundtrack is fantastic.
