Tyson director James Toback, Variety‘s Anne Thompson about 15 minutes after last night’s Che screening — Wednesday, 5.21.08, 11:38 pm. They were both foursquare against me on the film. Not enough drama and emotion, said Thompson, and not commercial. “In the States it’s going to make about $5 million dollars,” said Toback. Che is not any kind of huge box-office hit waiting to happen — we all know that — but for guys like me (i.e., “Sodernerds”), the film is glorious.
Complimentary snack bags, each containing a bland wonder-bread sandwich and a bottle of water — provided by the Wild Bunch marketers (perhaps by the same genius who arranged for the missing transportation to last night’s party!).
