"[Altman] then asked a reporter if he wanted to be an extra in the scene with Redford. The reporter thought for a moment about La Dolce Vita, in which an entertainment journalist ends up orchestrating a drunken orgy in the Italian countryside. 'O.K.,' he replied."
-- Michael Agger reporting from several sets at once for The New Yorker

Classically awful Showgirls now available in self-mocking DVD version, complete with drinking game and joke commentary. For which you pony up an extra $15?? Not funny. [AP via NYT]

Included on the Wonderland DVD (Val Kilmer as John Holmes? Gets caught up in a murder? Doesn't sound familiar? Probably because no one saw it.) is the actual LAPD crime scene footage of the actual murders. There's a feisty discussion about it on IMDb's message board. [Viewing hint: Rent, don't buy.] [via Scrubbles]

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
