I for one would love to see James Mangold‘s Ford v. Fairlane [sic], an Anne Thompson slip of the tongue…the two big players are The Irishman and Marriage Story…the title of The Two Popes alone…nobody really knows how much autonomy Fox Searchlight will have in the distribution realm…A24, significantly, giving an 11.1 release date to Trey Edward ShultsWaves, about a high-school wrestler (Luce‘s Kelvin Harrison Jr.) committing a “shocking act”…why is The Aeronauts playing the fall festivals?…the about-to-open Apple pocketbook…these guys actually care about Spider Man split from MCU…HE aside: Joker, trust me, is basically just another origin film…a well-written, appropriately noirish and Death Wish-y, and probably a well-acted one, but an origin story all the same.

The Adventures of Ford Fairlane (’90, d: Renny Harlin), :”acton comedy muster” starring Andrew Dice Clay as Ford Fairlane, a “rock n’ roll Detective”, whose beat is the L.A. music industry, and who drives a 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner. Wiki summary: “The film was both a commercial and critical failure, just barely breaking even with its budget and being awarded the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Picture, tying with Bo Derek‘s Ghosts Can’t Do It. However, it has since developed a cult following.”
