delinquency


so apologies. i thought this blogging thing was gonna be easy. but i got lost in the cut and never found a breath to write.

so here's an update. we finished up in malta about a month ago. i never did get to that chinese restaurant, never tried the rabbit, but andy and i found a good indian place instead. who would think? we also ate at a place called ron's which was actually ran by a guy named godfrey. go figure. he made some great grilled fish and had the best sicilian cheese cake in malta.

anyway, we are now back in nyc mixing the film. granted a few pounds heavier. we're working with dom the mix master again, collaborator from pi and fountain days. it's slow work but coming together.

we are rushing to get ready for the venice film festival. we've been invited to compete on

SEPTEMBER 5th at 7pm in VENICE

on the lido. it will be close but we should make it. this will be THE WRESTLER'S world premier.

two days later we will be at the toronto film festival on

SEPTEMBER 7th at 6pm in the ELGIN in TORONTO

that's gonna be a crazy screening. i hope some of you readers will come out and support us.

hope all of you are well...

Hey Darren. If you were blogging every day, I'd be wondering about your productivity! Great to hear about the score--I was wondering if Clint would be doing the music for the movie. Awesome. Can't wait to see it.

If I had to pick betwixt quality work and daily blogging, I'd choose the first. :)

Always nice to hear your updates.

When can we expect a preview for the film? I would love to see something.

Keep up the spectacular work Darren.

so good to hear this! i can't wait to see your new masterpiece...I would love read the screenplay of the fountain, it's still one of the most beautiful films i haver ever seen, but it seems very hard to find...Any suggestions?

I've just finished a screenplay based on true events, and writing a biopic right now, i know how consuming this job is.
Looking forward to reading your next posts. Jordan.

Hi there. My name is Francisco Casal and I'm from Argentina. Today is my birthday and a friend recommended to take a look to THE FOUNTAIN. I just did. I'm really touched by this film. It's just amazing. I can't described it right know. I have to recognized that I'm also touched by other factors. My girlfriend started to cry while she started to hug me because she was touched too!
I study at the University of Buenos Aires something related to cinema. I'm in third year. The point is that I've presented last year my short film at the university and caused a great impact. I really want you to see it (13 minutes) at www.enanasblancas.com.ar I used the music of your film (Clint Mansell) despite I've never seen your film, just Requiem and Pi. I also touched the idea of the stars, souls, life after death and eternal love. I can't believe the strange coincidence. I hope you can see my work, it would be an honor if you can take a look to my first work ever. You've got my mail.
Sincerely yours,
Francisco Casal

Great to hear from you Darren and I'm glad everything is going well. I wish I could be at the film festivals but I'm poor and it's a long way. Can't wait for the film to be released.

I'm so excited for this and have been such a big fan of your work. Any director that takes such an appreciation towards sound is a plus in my book. It would be an honor to work with you and Henighan someday.

"The Fountain" a movie for ALL seasons!
This the sixth time I have watched this movie and never got tired of it.The imagery was devastatingly beautiful! No doubt you have been inspired through gifts of"God" or something to have made such an honorable movie!
The MUSIC was God! Every time I watched this movie I cried and I got something new out of it! How inspiring!
Darren! I hope the universe takes care of you and your family!

Nquoid said...

Yes, finally. One of the few movies I'm eagerly anticipating. Darren you truely are a visionary. Also if the movie is debuting in September should we expect any trailers anytime soon as I'm dying to see footage from this.

Jay said...

Dude, Darren, Don't waste a second man. Though you probably STILL make an epic film regardless. Goosebumps just thinkin bout it man. Good luck!! You're my hero >_<

Lester said...

I can't wait to watch The Wrestler! And Darren, just wanted to tell you that I love love LOVE The Fountain, it's the most beautiful, moving, evocative, affecting movie I've ever watched, and I thank you for it!

Adri Marcos said...

I just re-watched The Fountain and finally remembered you did a commentary... but it's gone.

Where did it go, Mr. Darren?

Oh and yes, like everyone else, The Wrestler. Can't wait.

Borek said...

We will love to see you again in Warsaw. Maybe you will go there with your new movie (please :) :)
