In that article, it must be noted that the reporter made a huge huge huge glaring error, presumably not caught and corrected because none of his editors had read the book.*** Looks like the article came out about a month before the movie...if the reporter saw a preview cut before he wrote this article and *still* made that error, it means the man had no understanding of the film he was watching.
Meanwhile, who knew a Buster Brown haircut could come across as so .... terrifying?Also, from now on there should be a Movie Law that the first thing the filmmakers have to do is take out the score. If the movie doesn't hold up without overly-done, loud orchestration, then they have to go back and redo the whole thing because clearly they screwed up somewhere. I cannot wait for NCFOM to come out on dvd so I can watch it a bajillion more times.
And for the person reading this who is going ?! WTF WHERE ARE MY DINOSAUR PICTURES !? upon reading this.... Sorry. I was lined up to go to the James Gurney Dinotopia reception & lecture last night, but it was the sort of day at work where what I really needed to do when I left the office was not sit through a lecture while nibbling small hunks of cheese. So when word came down late that afternoon that Gilbert, whom I adore, greatly respect and hadn't seen in a few years was in town, I went there instead. (Bonus link!) Had a great time, and afterwards met up with a buddy at that pizza joint with the Nighthawks windows across the street from the old cathedral, where we ate and watched a show of frantic paparazzi action at whatever the hell was going inside the cathedral. All of those thin women doing the red carpet perp walk in those teeny dresses must have been freezing, let me tell you.
If Gurney ever comes back this way, I'll go take pictures. PROMISE. No, REALLY.
*** The triple-huge glaring error: It's not a thriller, and Chigurh is not a serial killer.
