    Hell No, I'm not letting them see that.

    The prioritization is due to the fact that I nearly laugh myself into incontinence every time I view a clip from it. It's already a cult classic and hasn't even been released. I'm almost counting the hours.

    I'm loooking forward to seeing this. I still have a hard time seeing Nicole Kidman as Diane Arbus. She seems not quite right... too tall, perhaps?

    I don't know... Natalie Portman, maybe?

    Thanks for the link, Dorothy!

    I'll definitely see it. I saw the trailer a month or so back. While it may not be much in the way of an actual biography, I enjoyed the look of reverence on Nicole Kidman's face while she slowly unwraps a Rollei.

    And the Rollei gets a close up! Gotta love that.

    Also, a Sinar Norma 5x7 with what looks to be a Commercial Ektar gets a lot of screen time too.

    This is what I'm saying! At last, a movie that has some star power.

    There's an interview with the Director, Steven Shainberg, in the current issue of American PHOTO.

    Although the film is supposedly based on Bosworth's bio, Shainberg apparently added quite a bit himself -- his "father and uncle had known Arbus through her lover Marvin Israel." The article/interview goes on to say the "movie is mostly fiction" focusing on an "invented relationship" and "tries to imagine the artistic transformation" Arbus underwent "during three months in 1958."

    Still, I intend to see it.

    I'll be curious to see what others think after seeing the film (myself included).

    I figure...it might be the way I view an image by Arbus. Always wondering 'what next' or where things lead. Such as the famous image of the twin girls:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...5051200902.jpg

    Kinda neat seeing them now.

    Yikes, Nicole Kidman... I don't like to put down another Aussie but I think she is a B grade actress at best. I think I'll give it a miss...

    And what about her judgement... Tom Cruise and then a guy who has to go into major rehab a few months after here comes the bride....
