Did You Know?

Trivia:
Steven Soderbergh attached the following list of rules to the screenplay to his low budget ($2 M) film with a huge list of stars: - 1. All sets are practical locations. - 2. You will drive yourself to the set. If you are unable to drive yourself, a driver will pick you up, but you will probably become the subject of ridicule. Either way, you must arrive alone. - 3. There will be no craft service, so you should arrive on set "having had". Meals will vary in quality. - 4. You will pick, provide, and maintain your own wardrobe. - 5. You will create and maintain your own hair and make-up. - 6. There will be no trailers. The company will attempt to provide holding areas near a given location, but don't count on it. If you need to be alone a lot, you're pretty much screwed. - 7. Improvisation will be encouraged. - 8. You will be interviewed about your character. This material may end up in the film. - 9. You will be interviewed about the other characters. This material may end up in the finished film. - 10. You will have fun whether you want to or not. If any of these guidelines are problematic for you, stop reading now and send this screenplay back where it came from.See more »

Experiment gone awry, 19 February 2004
Author: brianh-9 from Mississippi, United States

This is an exercise from Steven Soderberg and that's all it is. You sit through an hour and a half of conversations that normally entitle "you know" at the beginning and end of every sentence to try and make the "film" more real. It juxtaposes two "films"..one containing Francesca(Julia Roberts) and Calvin(Blair Underwood)(this filmed in 35 mm)as Catherine and Nicholas talking about a black actor's status in "white hollywood".This leads to Calvin being opposite Brad Pitt(playing himself)in a film directed by David Fincher. This film,come to find out is in turn a doc directed by a man who's face is covered by a block(it's Soderberg). The "real film" (which is lensed in digital)contains Calvin and Francesca as well as other characters and their lives in Los Angeles. The film's ending totally popped my already deflating balloon and showed that my time and patience was wasted. The dialogue meanders trying to show real people talking about real things. I thought it was a hollywood insiders film cared only by those who are hollywood insiders. I thought the characters never had direction and were simply annoying. There were moments it looked like the film might go somewhere,but unfortunately it gets bogged down with that "phony film" keeps coming into the middle of the "real" movie. I just sat there trying not to collapse in my desire to turn the dvd off. Oh well,I'm done with this review,but if you watch this wasteland of wasted time beware..I warned you. BOMB/*****
