06.01.07DVR Not exactly the feel good movie of the year, but worth watching I thought. There's a parade of recognizable actors that keep drifting in for one or two scenes - I guess to show that they're against fast food - which both makes it cool because he got a lot of good actors and not so cool because none of them are in it very long so the movie feels kind of aimless because of it. Not as aimless as I'd heard though... I liked this one probably more than others.

I am also half jazzed / half miffed that Linklater used Friends of Dean Martinez for his music. Jazzed because I think they're great and suited very well to film scores but miffed that I wanted to be the one to do it. They supplied music for a small doc about the Salton Sea and I saw them play live in front of that and was really impressed with their vibe so they made it to my fantasy list of people I'd use if I ever got a shot at making a movie. Now they'll want to get paid or something since they've already been in a "real" movie. Plus... I dunno, the use of their stuff here gave the movie too much of a Traffic knock-off vibe for me... I think their music's great but not the best choice for this movie.
