Hey where's Winona been Michael?..
I told you last month...
"A Scanner Darkly" was her last thing before this ( not so much a sci-fi Tassoula, more a slacker comedy of errors)..i could just about detect some ageing around the eyes in that ..but that was through the "mask" of the animated look they gave the film...
Just seen "the Wire" season three..i know via the HBO website ,that season four has just finished airing.. i enjoyed the introduction of the Politics, and the "players" involved there, i'd guess that gets developed more..
No spoilers here, but...Russell"Stringer" Bell must be one of the nastiest pieces of work ever
created for T.V. drama..as his deluded cold-hearted evil progresses ,he makes EVERYONE else likeable..not least Avon... As fans know,there are no clear-cut "good" guys and "bad" guys, they cross the board..personal faves, DeAngelo,Prysbylewski,
Omar, Bubs, and Carver..
Thinking about the casting of "the Wire" brings up something that bugs me increasingly these days..Idris Elba and Dominic West are both English actors with seamless American accents..that's by the way,but,why is it that we in the U.K. happily take the cream of HBO content ,to our hearts ,in unadulterated original form..whereas, many British stuff has to be remade for the "American Market"?...here i am gradually deciphering Baltimore street patios,as mastered by a guy from South London, when ,inhabitants of the mythic "Mid-West" are deemed unable to handle anything other than "posh" or Cockerney" ..(they even sent it up in "the Wire" season two..ref McNulty with the prostitutes).. this persisting anomaly also throws up things like ,the great Don Cheadle doing a friggin laughable "Cockerney",(worst since Dick Van Dyke etc) Antony Hopkins sounds stupid in EVERYTHING lately..Ewan McGregor, another offender..why cant the character be a mildly accented SCOT, who's a psychiatrist working in Chicago ,with personal intimacy and trouser issues? Instead of putting on a crap accent that just makes you laugh and say "Och Aye the Noo" all the time..
Tassoula! Just about to get to my DVD of David Lynch's
"Inland Empire" ,had it on pre-order,as only a handful of Central London cinemas showed it...you know i'm going to love it, but ,wish me luck..All the best

I guess I meant "where's live Winona been?" or something.

Stringer Bell became something of a folk hero to me. The whole "moving into legitimate business" thing. Of your list, Bubs is the one you root for the most. But just wait until season four. Remember the name "Randy".

Also, I still use the phrase "Omar Back!" all the time. Also season 4 I think.

Americans doing British accents are almost always terrible. Or Irish. See Tom Cruise in FAR and AWAY. Ugh. I don't really mind because you Brits seem to be able to pull it off so much better. Brotherhood, The WIRE, House. It's all good. The best use of the peculiar English-doing-American-accent was on the late, great DEADWOOD where Ian McShane's barely there accent was attributed to his birth in England and childhood in Chicago. Calamity Jane only referred to him as "that Cockney Cocksucker". Well done.

Renee Zellwegger, from Texas, is great doing an English accent in the Bridget Jones films and Miss Potter; Anne Hathaway in Becoming Jane, Gwynneth Paltrow in Shakespeare in Love, (also Ben Affleck) and Sliding Doors, so it CAN be done. Tilda Swinton, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts and Cate Blanchett leave the strine out of any character they take on, Leonardo in Blood Diamond is a pretty good South African and Forest Whittaker in Last King..

Watership Down ..never seen the film..just have an image of a kid on Saturday morning T.V. singing "Bright Eyes" , really badly out of tune...tried to read the book once,found it impenetrable
