My Commentaries

24 May 2001: It is unseasonably warm in Seattle, perhaps making up for the fact that I am once again not on the French Riviera [Cannes do]
31 May 2001: So what wonderful, obscure flick will I be missing when Moulin Rouge opens in Seattle? [Bombing out of the festival]
7 June 2001: Well, at least the lady who kept changing seats and walking into walls wasn’t talking on a cell phone [Magic moments]
14 June 2001: So, Quentin, how about making a movie about visionary Catholic lovers who fight with each other and then get shot? [Making (non)sense of it all]
21 June 2001: They say you should avoid discussing politics and religion, so in this commentary I will wisely avoid politics [Putting words in Jesus’s mouth]
