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.

Quotes

Carl: I think Lee is like... Have you ever seen a dog get hit by a car but walk away? And there's this impact and you know something terrible has happened to that dog but it walks away and it doesn't seem to even realize the implications cause it just goes on. But you know that something terrible has happened inside this dog. That's, I think, what happened to Lee. It's like she's a dog that got hit by a car, and she walked away and she's still walking, but some very, very important things inside her ...

Nod and Wink a full movie doth not make.
19 February 2004 | by seanchai321See all my reviews

What as waste of energy. Sure you could see where they wanted to go, if it hadn't been made a 1000 times by independants and students. Was Soderburgh trying to re-create something from his "Sex, Lies..." days? This movie can be summed up in that it was a student film made by Hollywood trying to be self-referential. If you were in on the jokes and the cameo/guest appearances then you were in on the movie, otherwise, for most - you're out. Nodding and winking at your clever, in-jokes at Hollywood does not make a movie.

What was Terence Stamp doing there?
