In Reply to: Hey Kev, Moriarty proclaims Tom Green a better.... posted by Menlo Park Rat on October 24, 2001 at 13:18:37:

I know Tom "directed" FGF but do you really think any sane studio would give that guy full control over a movie? I've seen him in person....he's really like that....all the fucking time. (What is Drew thinking?) I seriously doubt that Green had much control over the actual shots.


: ....director than you, sort of.

: From his column today:
: "Tom Green is one of those people, a face put to that statistic, and the animosity between him and his parents is like some operatic manifestation of the friction inevitably caused by that situation. Kevin Smith wrote about this character in MALLRATS with Brodie, the Jason Lee character. Speaking of Kevin Smith, I’d say Green has a more confident visual style in his first time at bat than Kevin has developed even after JAY & SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK. Even in that film, there are moments where it feels like Kevin has no sense of how to convey geography or motion or energy with a scene. Watch the opening title sequence of FREDDY GOT FINGERED, cut to the Sex Pistols’ “Problems”. It’s Tom Green skateboarding through a mall, being chased by security guards, and it’s got energy to spare."
