For Deadline’s Cannes Q&A, Allen invited us to his Manhattan screening room. And how, despite a groundbreaking TV series deal with Amazon , he doesn’t own a computer or understand what a streaming service is. all he knows is, he regrets a deal that has taken him out of his comfort zone. And despite his four Oscars, and the seven won by actors in his films, Allen believes he has never done anything of real consequence in all the years of generating stand-up comedy, books, plays and movies. It has the vibe of a place where people might play bridge, which is exactly what they did until he got hold of it. DEADLINE : What is this place. ALLEN : A bridge club years ago that we took over and made into a screening room with a projector, to screen films recreationally. So we edit in the other room, and come in here and look at it. Then we become depressed, go back in that room and try to fix it. DEADLINE : How long is it from depression to finished film. ALLEN : I have no strong feeling on it. I’m happy to go whichever way everyone is. Digital looks very good to me if it’s done well. Film always looks great if it’s done well. I’ve never shot anything in digital, but I think I will shoot my next film digitally to see what that’s like.
Q: This set of almost 70 microscope slides from the 1800s includes 12 novelty slides, “microdot” efforts showing the Royal Family, Niagara Falls, etc. The owner’s father purchased them in England during the Second World War. A: Often referred to as the father of microbiology, Antonie van Leeuwenhoek was finally recognized by the general public about 200 years after his accomplishments of the late 1600s. Companies promoting the sale of microscopes often sold accessory... Exhibition slides consisted of artistically arranged diatoms, or colourful insect scales in snowflake shapes or floral bouquets. The “microdots” you mention — extremely reduced photographs requiring a microscope to view, and once said to have been used for espionage — are of much interest and quite collectible. Discerning collectors will often pay quite a high price for individual slides, depending on the subject, age and rarity. Without assessing each of your slides, I’d say the collection is worth $150. Q: This is a silhouette of the squire of West Haddon, Northamptonshire, England. A: There are several theories as to how a shadowed profile came to be named after Etienne de Silhouette, Louis XV’s finance minister. One is that the minister’s name became associated with things done “on the.
One player emphasized to me at the time, "You can tell [the Cavaliers] don't like each other. Now that pendulum has swung the other way. After the Wizards (40-31) took 31-point loss to the Golden State Warriors on Monday on the heels of a 23-point loss to the lowly Sacramento Kings on Sunday, Mo Speights didn't bite his tongue about what's wrong in D. C. . Speights, who has a... We knew if we hit them, if we got a couple stops they would start arguing with each other and quit," Speights said after the Wizards were held to 1-for-18 shooting in the game-changing third quarter. Like single-issue politics, in sports everyone wants to attribute a current crisis to one problem and they have the one answer to make it all better: Randy Wittman's rotations, his offensive philosophy, John Wall's turnovers or health, Marcin... Perception and reality aren't the same, but in sports (like politics, unfortunately) that perception becomes reality.
