“You’re out of control wrong all the time.”
“Having read your site here and there, you might be the worst box office prognosticator on the planet Earth, let alone with a website… You have this bizarre attitude that you know things about the business.”
That’s how The Hangover Part II director Todd Phillips opens his interview with longtime internet box office obsessive David Poland. Phillips seems like a really angry guy, a guy who holds lots of grudges, and I like that. I just sort of wish that the darkness Phillips always exudes when I run into him or see him interviewed came across more in his films, which tend to have mainstream, middle class sensibilities.
