My name is Gregg. I'm a screenwriter and a film-maker.
In the words of Ingmar Bergman, "...film is my mistress." But I also make music.

The first trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice.

Inherent Vice trailer? i can’t tell. i like it, i like it a lot, but not as a film from PTA. or maybe i do. maybe it was beefed up by WB. it’s gonna sell. it’ll make a lot of money, probably— or bomb. either/or. a lot more zaney then i could have ever imagined. i was hoping some of the same themes/feelings would come through in this from the Master— granted, i’m being unfair at a trailer. but as a lover of the book, and of PTA— i have to wonder and worry. it looks good. i smiled, but what’s happening here?

[…] ‘Vincent Lindon declared: “If you write it, I’ll act in it.” In short, it was impossible to get out of it. When I went home I thought of Kurosawa’s title, The Bad Sleep Well (“Les Salauds dorment en paix”). I liked it; it seemed terribly accurate. So I started from there: a strong, dependable man like Toshiro Mifune who, in those noir movies of Kurosawa’s, is both hero and victim - in any case the plaything of forces he doesn’t control, that he doesn’t understand.’Claire Denis
