MINAMATA Updates

In that case, especially if you've never used iTunes, it's much simpler to wait for a Blu Ray release (not to mention the image and sound quality will be far superior). It has been released in the UK on demand but it's likely that a Blu Ray release will follow soon (considering it was released in A...

MINAMATA Updates

It's already available on demand all over the world (with English subtitles). If you're in the US, it's pretty easy to create an iTunes account in other countries, then feeding it with iTunes gift cards. I think the UK will likely have a Blu Ray release so we get the English subtitles on the Japane...

MINAMATA Updates

This is beginning to remind me of the terrible nightmare of attempting to watch The Brave in the US years ago. The only DVD version that was available in English and in a version that could be played on US dvd players came to us from Korea and was missing roughly 20 minutes of the film. Don't ask me...

MINAMATA Updates

I don't know. I spend a lot of time wondering about that and what purpose there is in refusing to release a film in North America (Canada and the US) but release it everywhere else. Makes no sense. And I don't think it has anything to do with money because clearly MGM would make more money if it was...

55th Karlovy Vary IFF welcome Johnny Depp 20th-28th Aug 2021

That is a lovely comment by Julian Temple, but the thought that fans in America don't support him as much as fans in Europe makes me so deeply sad. :sad:

WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS--Updates, Reviews and Discussion

Snoopy, thank you! Great scene, but it makes sense that they decided to leave it out. It would have diminished the allegorical feel of the film. Coetzee wasn't really going after reality. But, I am sure glad IFOD shared the scene.

The Lawsuits Thread

This is really wonderful news. I haven't been much of a commenter here but I followed this thread closely. Could it be that things may just almost be about to turn around for JD? I surely hope so.

Thanks to all for the wonderful, wonderful work on this thread!

The Sunday Times is NGN owned. (It is in the same building as The Sun.)
Even if a NGN journalist wanted to write a JD positive article, I doubt the editors or management would accept it.

I didn't know that, thank you.

Johnny Depp to Receive San Sebastian Donostia Award

I just found a piece in ScreenDaily about Wim Wenders, the German film director, defending the two festivals that are honoring JD for his work. I am hoping we will begin to see more people stand up for Johnny. And yes, obviously, right now it takes a lot of courage. See link below: https://www.scree...

Interview - Johnny on MINAMATA, CNN (from The Sunday Times)

Well, that's a really acid interview. I suppose the writer took the pulse of media and decided to lean in favor of Hollywood. Every writer who sits down to interview someone makes a choice. Either they choose to see the interviewee through a pre-established lens, in part because that makes the story...

MINAMATA Updates

Poking around tonight I found three different articles about how MGM is burying the Minamata release in the US. I remember the original delay back in February but I am absolutely horrified that those of us in the US may have wait even longer to see this film. I am including the links below: Director...

CITY OF LIES (LAbyrinth) Updates

I finally watched the film tonight. Covid and working zoom in school for a year utterly stole my focus -- couldn't consider anything else. It is a great movie and I highly recommend it for the truth it tells and Johnny's acting. My head is still spinning from the end -- I didn't know. It took severa...
