'Supermarket tabloids and celebrity gossip shows are ... a fundamental part of a much larger movement that involves apathy, greed and hierarchy'
The New York Times read my mind, as it sometimes does, although the story it ran today on Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a tad glib for my tastes. Still, it's good that this anomaly of filmdom is getting some inquisitive press about his career, which has blossomed into the most involving and pure of his acting generation. After Brick (amusing movie, tremendous performance) and Mysterious Skin (great movie, tremendous performance) can't wait for The Lookout this Friday. Also, my friend Jason alerted me to JG-L's personal Web site, which features a revealing little video confrontation with the paparazzi and the buds of a potential recording career.
