Well, neaura, yes. :|
you're not being any fun [what, no pouty emoticon?]

I was having fun with the idea of sorta-Luddite Keanu NOT taking a selfie, because taking a selfie seems enormously non-Keanu-like to me.

And while I didn't hear him say "yes! I'm gonna be Dr Strange! Excellent!" I also don't see him saying "no, I am absolutely not going to do this"
Ah, the joys of journalistic accuracy! "we don't have a story! let's turn it into a mythology!"

looks like many people didn't 'get' its humor, its quirky-ness, Conor's own particular awesomeness... didn't fit their preconceived ideas about how that world or that movie shoud behave and sound like

Hardball was definitely a shock to the system for me at first because Conor was so totally unlike all my previous ideas of Keanu. Once I set those aside and looked again, I realized what a great job he did in the role. Even when he was Johnny-Mnemonic over the top, like the scene right before he took the kids to the baseball game, there was a reason for it that made sense within the parameters of the character. There was genius in the difference between his fake-charm with the teacher vs. the real charm that just sort of poured out of him unaware in the "I'm interested!" scene. And the list goes on.

Also, lucky elevator girl. Sigh.

Haha, I'm sorry about that MmeRenard! I was looking at those pictures and trying to chew(fully aware that digestion might be impossible) what I was seeing. I would've believed if someone had told me that they'd ventured near a blackhole and clicked a picture of it rather than THIS :-)... that's why the ending ah...

well, those photos were taken while Almodovar was re-filming some iconic short movie of the Lumiere brothers... and everyone else around him is taking a photo at that very moment... so guess it was part of the 'script'? No idea, just typing out loud.


I like the other photos more, though. They clearly show he had some ideas of his own on how the thing should have been choreographed/directed/filmed ;)


Here's more about that exercise in re-filming a classic:

He loves it when you call him Big Poppa. ;)

Keanu Reeves is a fan of old typewriters so I asked him to type some advice on my old Remington #cbcarts

('Keanu's advice for actors : PERSEVERANCE ')

Let's just say if I'd been one of the women sitting at that table, that scene would've had a VERY different ending. ;)

My mother said of Conor: "Don't you ever date a guy like that."

She's right. He's terrible relationship material for most of the movie.

Well, Street Kings is on USA right now, and I'll bet Tom Ludlow would do OK in a bar fight.

Yeah, with a guy like that there's only one kind of relationship to have. I've never been able to do it, but after seeing Conor in that scene I certainly get the appeal.

A commenter:


Alien Jesus: "I just watched on DVD the first Matrix again after quite some time... Honestly that scene where Reeves is all hooked up to hoses in that egg pod covered in goo, I still marvel at the fact that no one else on Earth at that or any other time could play that scene with such finely tuned bewilderment. The boy has a unique talent, that for me is always pretty damn winning."

BET: Who would win in a fight? Neo from The Matrix, or John Wick?

Keanu: Uh... knowing the two guys... uh... Neo... wouldn't fight, and, um, John Wick wouldn't... They'd be a good tandem. You know, like, Neo would do some like, you know, reality warping stuff, and then John Wick would just take care of business.
