Peaktalk gives me credit....

… although I am certain I had nothing to do with “Hollywood Does Van Gogh” – the plans by actor Steve Buscemi to bring three of assassinated Dutch Filmmaker Theo Van Gogh’s films to the screen in American indie versions. Peaktalk’s Pieter Dorsman concisely states what is also my reaction:

Van Gogh’s movies were not exactly material for the masses and it will be interesting to see what Buscemi and friends will make of some of the material. The proof will be in the pudding: how will the publicity be handled once these productions are released? How much of it will be spent on the moviemaker’s life and in particular, his death?
