Paris est libéré!
"La Douleur" by Marguerite Duras is a gorgeous novel about Paris at the end of WW2 and now a film by deranged madman, Emmanuel Finkiel who lost his shit three times on set screaming at everyone to be professional. So much fun to be shouted at in French by a middle-aged tortured genius! Shot with real American GI uniforms in a secret Metro station, all is forgiven Mr. Finicky - forging poetry into the moving image be not for the faint of heart.

Lead voice actor in filmmaker Hadrien Besse's Sam Peckinpah inspired stop-motion plastic gore-fest, selected for the prestigious "Coup de Coeur" at Cannes, 2017.
"A plasterpiece." - CHARLIE LEGDO.
"A towering achievement impossible to step on and thank gooodness 'cause it's sharp as hell." - BRICKDANCE FILM FEST
Produced by Ridley Scott and starring Kristen Stewart the director is a genius and the nicest guy in the world. Not nice enough though to save Brett's part which originally opened the film. Nor Aurora Perrineau's. Nor many other actors, not to mention three, ten-day-old babies. Brett's review: "A lot of beautiful scenes in this movie, not a lot of Brett." If you went to see him in this, he is sorry. And if you went to see Kristen Stewart looking weepygorgeous, you got your money's worth and are probably not reading this. All to say, alas. Audition in Tokyo, move to Paris, fly back to shoot it, get cut like gristle. Makes you wanna throw in the towel and put Baileys in your coffee, maybe order a pizza tonight and pirate some rom-com piece of shit off the internet.
