Waiting for the Barbarians - Tidbit 9: The Struggle to Get This Film Made

All the business nonsense with the Professor and City of Lies has been a bit of education. And then there was Johnny's role in Don Quixote . :facepalm: How many films have been rumored for him over the years, too. It is a strange business Thanks for the informative tidbit. I had no idea what a produ...

Waiting for the Barbarians - Tidbit 8: The Characters

I am not worried about Johnny's role being too small in this movie. He has a very meaty part, Joll is a pivotal character and one we love to hate (at least in the book). Johnny has played some really good smaller parts -- Roux in Chocolat, for instance. He will bring something special and memorable ...

Waiting for the Barbarians - Tidbit 6: The Karoo

He painted such a clear word picture in the book that I could see clearly in my mind the fantasy world he created. I suppose on some level he must have been influenced by the surroundings he knew.

And just to add, if Amber Heard abused the Yorkies the same way she abused Johnny, she'd be in jail by now. Sadly, this is true. :-/ People say animal abuse is so horrid because the animals can't just leave. But an abused spouse doesn't leave easily, either. Abusers pick their victims carefully.

Waiting for the Barbarians - Tidbit 3: Competition

Interesting to think of the book being set in South Africa where Coetzee was born and spent his childhood. But perhaps that is because my knowledge of African geography is sorely lacking. For me the book seemed to be set in some unnamed fantasy land. Many of the themes in the book seem universal to ...

Also If you already knew this, forgive me as I haven't seen it posted anywhere, but ... IMPORTANT NEWS!!! I've just bought the blue ray of City of Lies from Amazon Ita...

CITY OF LIES (LAbyrinth) Updates

I watched it today. I don't know whether it would be confusing for someone who hadn't done any background work first, but I was glad I had read the book and watched some documentaries before I watched the movie. Johnny was absolutely wonderful in this film! I guess I shouldn't be surprised by that, ...

There seems to be an expectation here that Johnny will win if the case goes to trial. Unfortunately, being right does not always mean you will win a case. It is always a big gamble. A settlement would be a sure thing.

CITY OF LIES (LAbyrinth) Updates

The Italian discs are available on ebay and the price/shipping is not bad at all. My concern is if they will play in the USA. From what I have read most blu ray discs (but not all) are region free. The seller I contacted on ebay couldn't give me any region information. I hadn't thought about the lan...

Perhaps we can all rent and watch the Professor and give it positive reviews. Johnny does a magnificent job in this role. Maybe we can start rebuilding by giving this movie the praise it deserves. :cool:

I am curious about the photos of Johnny's injuries. Who took them, when and why, etc. I am surprised that Johnny allowed himself to be photographed in such vulnerable circumstances. Somebody must have been on the ball early on. I imagine that "her" camp will claim they are made up and fal...
