: : : 1) Did you lose anything invaluable in the flood?
: : A lot of electronics. Some art. And three great hard wood floors.
: : : 2) Are you concerned that "Gigli" and/or the whole "Benifer" tabloid phenomenon
: : is going to hurt or affect "Jersey Girl" in some adverse way?
: : Not really. Our flick will rise or fall on it's own merits.
: : : 3) Do you ever miss the freedom of being independent, or are the trade-offs in
: : more cash and resources worth the late-night pillow squabbling with Harvey W.?
: : What's a pillow squabble?
: : In truth, I almost always get what I want anyway, so there's no loss of freedom. In
: : fact, with the wherewithall (sp?) we're afforded by working with Miramax, I probably
: : get what I want more than I would if we were hardcore "indie".
: : Fact of the matter is, unless you're in attendance at the IFFM yearly, or at Sundance
: : checking out flicks before they get bought, you rarely see an "indie" flick anymore.
: : Miramax. Sony Classics. Fine Line. Focus. IFC. Once one of these logos
: : appears in front of a film, it's no longer "indie."
: : To me, what's always made an indie is the content of the film. You look at the flick,
: : and decide whether or not it ever could've been made through a studio system. If it
: : couldn't, then it's "indie."
: : : 4) Speaking of which -- is it safe to say FLETCH WON is dead for now?
: : : 5) What are you currently reading/listening to, if anything new?
