That “anonymous Toronto buyer” has struck again with reactions to a pair of pics-of-the-moment….
(1) All The Boys Love Mandy Lane — Brilliant little film with a refreshing cast of unknowns. Imagine an episode of The O.C. mixed with Texas Chainsaw Massacre. An inspired quick-draw pick-up by the Weinstein Co.
(2) El Cantante (i.e., the Jennifer Lopez project that I went “yipes!” about two or three weeks ago) — I thought it was too long. The screenplay is lazy . The crowd reaction last night at the Elgin was lukewarm even though there was a strong Puerto Rican contingent in the house. This isn’t a home-run. Might have trouble finding a strong U.S. distributor. Only the music makes it interesting.
