    I’m glad BM is dead in Hollywood stagnant water. To think that it would be another travesty like Oscar-winning NCFOM almost gives me the dry heaves.

    It finally dawned on me that the only suitable director for this film is Terrence Malick. He could capture the poetic abstractions of the novel while dispassionately portraying the violence.

    Interesting piece in the Guardian online about the dark American end-times themes in the movies being touted as contenders for next year’s Oscars ( I find that quite funny. ‘Apocalypse, dear? There will always be the Oscars!’). However, since the hyperreality of apocalypse seems to make more and more sense these days, then maybe the BM producers should think about running the movie in the documentary category. He laughs darkly.

    I would like to see Tom Hardy as The Judge, when he is bald and inteprets a crazy guy like in Bronson and Batman he is the best.

    I started to say David Lynch for BM but he’d make it too fantastic (though the Judge is in some respects fantastic), give it too surreal a twist. Terrence Malick might be able to pull it off.

    The latest foray into the parlour game that is suggesting stars to play in a film of BM is here:

    Not being remotely interested in Hollywood movie-making, I’ve only heard of Neeson, Pitt and the boy from The Road. Liam Neeson as the judge? I don’t think so. Nowhere near big enough.

    Sometimes the best satire is the obscure satire. Google this: ‘James Franco: Stanley Kubrick’s “Blood Meridian” is the perfect western for these times’
