    ...and our friends at Tribuneco were kind enough to capture it on a cellphone camera, and then were proud enough to post it on their website.

    The fail shown here is unprecedented.

    That was brutal. Which body part would you sacrifice to frostbite? Jeebus.

    1stADD: Someone in the comments linked to an article about the director's journal. Here's a brilliant excerpt:

    "Next day, I team up with James Gandolfini and Mimi Kennedy, two of the US cast. They play a Pentagon general and a US state department politico doing their not-very-best to stop a war happening. Mimi is hilarious and James is always charming and generous, and very patient with the press. Just as well. The first interviewer is from the LA Times. That's an important newspaper. We all have to be on our best behaviour. The reporter places a small mobile phone on a tripod. We look at each other, and get ready for the smart incisive questioning. "If you had to lose one body part to frostbite, what part would it be?" Somewhere out in the digital ether, there's footage of the three of us all looking at each other thinking, "What in arse's name has happened to the LA Times?"

    That was actually physically painful.
  6. My advice to you is to start drinking heavily.

    What does a tripod for a cellphone cam look like?

    And this was the LA Times -- you can only imagine how the three guys felt knowing they still had to sit through questions from People, Access Hollywood, Extra, etc.

    Too many points. I just use meth instead.

    Anyone know what the story is? Did the LA Times outsource Sundance coverage? But then again, look who the LAT is competing against in the region.
