Any word about Twist of Faith? Haven't heard of that one. Born into Brothels is due to open here this week. I'm looking forward to it. I'm sorry to not see Control Room.

A foreign movie can't be stupid.

I think it's both -- he showed it on TV and said he didn't care about being disqualified for this award because he could still aim for Best Picture.

Um. What the hell is a TUPAC: RESURRECTION and why should one ever really care?

I think I will quickly do a little review from my notes from last fall on Born Into Brothels. It looks like many more people are going to be interested in it.

Tupac: Resurrection is a documentary about Tupac Shakur, the rapper who was mysteriously gunned down in Las Vegas over 10 years ago.

From Showtime's website:

Short-listed for a Best Documentary Oscar nomination, this engrossing film from writer/director Lauren Lazin tells the true life story of slain rapper Tupac Shakur - in the musician's own words. Using hours of interviews and home videos of Shakur, the filmmaker is able to weave a spellbinding biographical portrait of a complex artist, narrated by the subject himself.

OK, that's better. I thought for sure it was a live video, concert footage, something like this.
