Skandies: #15

[Since David Lynch has apparently managed to prevent any pirated copies of Inland Empire from making their way onto the web—at least that I could locate—here's the closest equivalent—the Skandies' #2 Scene from 2001.]



HISTORY:

Altman's career Skandie high was his 7th-place finish for The Company in 2003. He also placed 11th two years earlier for Gosford Park.

Gyllenhaal had previously finished 3rd (should have been two notches higher) in the 2002 Actress race, for Secretary. Remarkably, this is Damon's first citation since 1999, when he placed 9th for The Talented Mr. Ripley; he also came in 20th in 1997 for Good Will Hunting. Reilly has turned up in Supporting three times before: #8 for Boogie Nights (1997), #2 for Magnolia (1999), and #20 for Chicago (2002).

Greengrass's Bloody Sunday screenplay didn't make the cut.

...much to my non-major-urban-area-living chagrin.

Yes. In years to come the big "asterisk" story will be, How much better would EMPIRE have done had it had a real release?

It is too bad the seen you have chosen to display here does not have the visual integrity of INLAND EMPIRE.

What was that bud. I did not hear you on account of I was examining the visual integrity of my cats' litter box.
