According to David O. Russell (who had a great talk with Elvis Mitchell at the LA Film Festival last night), Spike Jonze’s first movie was supposed to be an adaptation of a children’s book, then it was going to be a BEASTIE BOYS MOVIE, WHICH APPARENTLY FELL THROUGH.
It ended up being Being John Malkovich.
THAT WAS A THING.
I’m finally getting around to watching Election.
And holy SHIT is Reese Witherspoon’s performance drawing some mental parallels to Amy Poehler in Parks and Recreation personality wise.
Anyway, liking it a lot so far. Alexander Payne is such a peculiar damn filmmaker.
