Well I've heard he's got a 'Limp Bizkit' so that's him out of the picture.

I recently found out about an upcoming film called Inception. It looks almost like an Escher drawing in certain parts. Hopefully this will be a good sci-fi action film, but with something to make you think.

I'll probably just see it because it's Christopher Nolan. And it has Cillian Murphy, and that's never a bad thing.

I'm curious though... how long has it been since Nolan made a film that doesn't have Michael Cain in it? I'm also interested in how DiCaprio does out with Nolan as a director.

That is amazing. At this point, I don't think he should stop.

He seems to favor certain actors. At least, the same actors keep showing up in his films. Cillian Murphy, Christian Bale, Michael Cain, etc. It's not egregrious... and since I like all those actors, I'm certainly not complaining.

It's a pretty common attribute in auteur directors. The Coen brothers have a certain set they tend to use (McDormand, Goodman, Buscemi, Turturro, Clooney). Bergman had his repertory company.

As did Werner Herzog...Klaus Kinski appears in most of his films but there is a definite troupe of actors which feature.

True, I suppose I didn't notice it except with Nolan 'cause he makes more big budget, widely advertised movies. Not that the Coen Brothers are indie or anything, but just the way I think about the Batman movies and the Prestige and all. They're still spring/summer entertainment flicks, as opposed to the slew of Oscar nominees that get released around fall/winter.

This looks like an interesting horror film. Bitter Feast: A chef kidnaps an influential and snarky food blogger after said blogger writes a particularly scathing review of the chef's work. He then forces the blogger to perform basic cooking tasks, and if the blogger delivers anything less than perfection, he's subjecting to bloody, painful torture.

Let me guess, starring Gordon Ramsay.

No, but funny enough the influence for the film was a review of one of Gordon Ramsay's restaurants by the NY Times' Frank Bruni.

Mario Batali has a small role in the film though.
