I wrote 'THE BANKER' ... (and some trivia concerning same) Revised 7 April, 2006
8 April 2006 | by (Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

PLEASE NOTE THE E-MAIL ADDRESS CHANGE ...

Dana Augustine (DirectedBy@aol.com)

I wrote 'THE BANKER' (and some trivia concerning same), Revised 7 April, 2006

My name is Dana Augustine and I was the co-story, screenwriter and associate producer on the Robert Forster (of 'JACKIE BROWN' and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for same) picture called 'THE BANKER.'

According to Bob Forster, Quentin Tarantino (in his days as a video store manager) kept 'THE BANKER' on his 'favorite shelf' and that was one of the reasons (again, according to Forster) that he got, what turned out to be, the Oscar nominated role as 'Max Cherry' in 'JACKIE BROWN.'

Besides all of the other reviews you may have read regarding my film, please take a look at 'THE VIDEOHOUND'S COMPLETE GUIDE TO CULT FLICKS AND TRASH PICS' ... they gave it a review called my script 'smart and funny.'

They gave it a rating of '3 and 1/2 Bones' -- and in comparison, you'll notice that they also gave 'BLADE RUNNER' 3 and 1/2 Bones.

Lastly, this film has 'following' -- meaning it has become a minor cult hit in some circles ...

For one of many personal examples, I was in a video store once and there was a fella renting my movie. Before telling him WHO I was, in regards as the screenwriter of 'THE BANKER', I asked him what he liked about it. He said, "Ohh man, it's cool. It's weird. I've seen 4 times already."

The good news is, because of this movie, I became a commercial director and have 600 plus commercials under my belt and a ton of awards.

Thanks for your interest in my little cop / killer thriller.
