Anonymous asked: Detention was a huge piece of shit, right?

Yeah, I thought so, but I’m not a fan of that hyper-kinetic, post-ironic filmmaking. Kind of like COMMUNITY at its worst. Also, I kind of hate teenagers already and DETENTION really made me hate them.

leaversdance asked: Hi, do you have any views in New Zealand cinema? Have you seen any films from New Zealand?

unfortunately, i am pretty ignorant of the cinema of new zealand. i’ve only seen some of the most internationally famous films from that country, like THE PIANO, WHALE RIDER, HEAVENLY CREATURES,  & DEAN SPANLEY.

obviously i’ve seen the LORD OF THE RINGS films, and since then a lot of hollywood productions have been shot in new zealand.

for being such a small country, new zealand has produced a lot of quality actors, too: cliff curtis, sam neill, anna paquin, melanie lynskey, lucy lawless & my fave, zoe bell.

my biggest association with new zealand & film is the new zealand film archive, where a huge treasure trove of “lost” movies were recently recovered. so, my biggest view on new zealand cinema is basically that i want to raid their national film archive. call me, NZFA!
