Still no distributor for "Adam Resurrected"

Goldblum and Schrader

This is the best thing I've read so far this week (though I admit it's still early, being only Tuesday night...)

"A movie that does not have a distrib is Paul Schrader's Adam Resurrected, which stars Jeff Goldblum in an astonishing role as a Berlin cabaret performer who survived a concentration camp by playing a dog for a commandant (Willem Dafoe). The movie is magical, fictional and outrageous, like the popular Yoram Kaniuk novel it is based on, and marks a feat of daring on the part of Schrader and Goldblum. Some small distrib will figure out that there is a long-shot Oscar play here for Goldblum, who uses every skill he ever learned in his career for this juicy sexy crazy role."

Some little studio needs to pick this film up. Not only do I think Jeff Goldblum finally deserves Oscar consideration (he was robbed when he didn't win for his portrayal of Seth Brundle/Brundlefly 22 years ago!), but if someone doesn't pick this flick up, I won't get the chance to see it on the big screen - like so many of Jeffy's recent wonders. What's that? Why, yes, I AM a selfish woman.

That sucks! But from what I hear, the movies is getting great reviews.It's time for an Oscar. Or atleast a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Something!
