OOH BABY.

A fascinating career, she has had. Some really beautiful films but also a lot of high-brow schlock, a lot of it, like that flick about Valerie Solanas. Whoo, that was a bad one, but so fun!

She is a painfully cruel and petty woman, though. It makes me wonder if the ends justify the means(pun intended!).

I interned there.

I'm pretty sure her philosophy is 'I make socially-conscious cinema, and therefore I can treat everyone below me like human garbage.'

Also, Christine: EVERYONE WAS AWKWARD IN HIGH SCHOOL.

The film of Mildred Pierce was a lot better than the novel. So that could be a problem.

Table, do you know her? I've seen her speak a few times and she seemed super generous with info and experience. a buddy interned for her and LOVED her.

With Kate Winslet, even? Did I read that correctly? Damn.
