He also has a blog and a MySpace page.

If you still haven’t seen Spaced (and I’m still surprised by the amount of people that haven’t) then you can buy it on DVD here.

Oliver Stone on Bill Maher’s Real Time

Oliver Stone was recently on Bill Maher’s Real Time, in which he talked about Buddhism, Vietnam, the Obama administration and Wall Street 2.

By the way, the book by Jeremy Scahill that they mention is Blackwater and I would highly recommend it.

Directors Documentaries Trailers

Teaser for Michael Moore’s new film

The teaser for Michael Moore’s as-yet-untitled documentary about the bailout has been released by Overture films.


The IMDb currently lists it as ‘The Untitled Michael Moore Project‘ and at a screening of the above trailer in New York cinemas ushers walked around collecting donations for the satirical “Save Our CEOs” organization.

Apparently if anyone was silly enough to give money, it all went to a local food bank.

Courtney Hazlett of MSNBC’s ‘The Scoop’ had a recent discussion previewing the film, in which they point out that it could have a broader appeal than his previous work because of widespread bipartisan anger towards Wall Street:

It is scheduled for a US release on October 2nd.
