Notes from the Manager
Also, if you're not familiar with The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, it's a new picture from Julian Schnabel (Basquiat, Before Night Falls). Being about a man who becomes completely paralyzed except for his left eye, it's a story that could easily have fallen into emotional torture porn territory if Diving Bell weren't so wonderfully shot, with a superb cast and accompanied by a terrific soundtrack. I have some quibbles with a couple of unnecessary liberties the script from the true story it's based upon, but they don't undermine the heart of the movie. It's still in limited release, so it may not be near many of you, but you'll be hearing about this film again come Oscar time.
UPDATE (1/1/08): Happy New Year! So this time, I'm going to try an Honor System Vote Incentive. That means, you don't have to vote at BuzzComix or TopWebComics, but it would sure be nice if you did. Those places have the same incentives as before. A new strip can be seen here, at my Flickr page. This strip takes place between Multiplex #s 23 and 24 (November, 2005) and features everybody's favorites, Jason and Becky, talking about Jane Austen's various film adaptations. Joy.

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.
James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
