Another neat event I’ll be missing due to the Vietnam journey is an evening reception for Blue Is The Warmest Color costars Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux at the French Consulate residence in Beverly Hills. Then again if I could attend I’d just be in conflict. Half of me would want to ask about Seydoux about the latest turn in her quote war with director Abdellatif Kechiche, and the other half would want to duck that topic because everyone else has been harping on it. The result is that I would probably just stand around and not say anything to anyone. I can’t ask the same question that everyone is asking — I have to ask something original. What are the chances that the forthcoming special edition Criterion Bluray (i.e., not the bare-bones version coming on on 2.11.14) will get into the Kechiche-Seydoux spat? Zilch.
