'Map to the Stars' toilet scene and the crushing trophy.

A tricky scene that takes place in a bathroom didn't scare Julianne Moore away from accepting a leading role in "Maps To The Stars," but the same can't be said for others.
In a conversation with , the film's director David Cronenberg spoke of how the Oscar-winning actress didn't so much question the sequence -- "a whole long, complex, funny dialogue scene while they're sitting on a toilet, farting and whatever else" -- unlike a number of her fellow Hollywood colleagues.
"We had no discussion whatsoever". "It was other actresses -- this script being around for 20 years, other actresses had certainly seen it and many, many of them had big problems with that scene. They just felt they could not do that scene."
The veteran director recalled various actresses' ambivalence about being able act out that scene, but Moore didn't require any convincing.
"With Julie, it was no discussion at all because it was in the script," he recounted. "It was great. She loved it, as she did the rest of the script, and it was just, 'What's the best way to do it?' You know, where do we want to put the camera, how do we block it, what's the choreography, all just very pragmatic stuff. 
Nothing at all about the inner-life of that scene because it was right there on the page and it would come out in the performances."

Btw, Julianne was fantastic in this film, and she appeared contractually able to dominate (hog up) 'bout 85 % of screen time over the others- but it is Mia's performance at the final chapter of this dark comedy and her cold-faced brutal & direct attack on the apparently non-existent mental health system in Hollywood that steals the trophy, obliterating its emblematic absurdity forever into your heads (and I mean literally). She made this mediocre movie work. bye.

I just killed a fly with my fly swatter. This happened in the kitchen. This happened without using RAID. This happened using a fly swatter from the 99 cent store. 

bye (splat).

Heath Ledger's 'The Brothers Grimm' is now on NETFLIX !  
But Jane highly recommends 'Leo the Last' by John Boorman, as it is kind of a remake of Hitchcock's  'Rearview Window,' but with a 'Taxi Driver' inner-city schizophrenic steroidal ' blow up your own house at the end of the movie ' edge to it.  bye.

Inaccurate and Bias Review:

Ok, so I'm finally going to admit my secret to the world !


Sorry it took me this long. 

Love, Bye.

Head transplants will finally be available in two years!

Sergio Canavero, a doctor in Italy, has drawn up the plans for a human head transplant

A surgeon says the first human head transplant could take place within the next two years.
Sergio Canavero, a doctor in Turin, Italy, has drawn up the plans for the radical surgery and hopes to begin assembling a team this June, the Guardian reports.
“If society doesn’t want it, I won’t do it. But if people don’t want it, in the U.S. or Europe, that doesn’t mean it won’t be done somewhere else,” he said. “I’m trying to go about this the right way, but before going to the moon, you want to make sure people will follow you.”

Although Canavero says the technology isn’t far off from making this surgery possible, he could confront a range of ethical issues. “The real stumbling block is the ethics,” Canavero told New Scientist magazine. “Should this surgery be done at all? There are obviously going to be many people who disagree with it.”
The first successful head transplant was completed in 1970 on a monkey. The monkey couldn’t move its body and died after nine days.
'Sounds like monkey business to me. And all over again,' exclaimed Doctor Janey Public to a National Geographic journalist urging for comment. 'But I'll buy a head just for the hell of it. I'll put a big one on lay-away. bye.' And the interview ended with a headache.
