Martin Scorsese and Woody Allen want Roman Polanski back on the streets. Jewel, not so much... The two Oscar winners, along with Pedro Almodóvar, John Landis, Jonathan Demme, David Lynch and more than 100 filmmakers, actors and industry types, have signed a petition objecting to the fugitive director's arrest and demanding his release from a Swiss jail. Authorities in Zurich took the 76-year-old Polanski into custody Saturday at the behest of Los Angeles prosecutors, who want him brought to justice for a 1978 statutory rape conviction. The fact Polanski's been on the lam for drugging and then having sex with a 13-year-old girl didn't seem to faze his fellow filmmakers, who are peeved that the Academy Award winner behind Chinatown, Rosemary's Baby and The Pianist was picked up while he was on his way to accept a lifetime achievement award from the Zurich International Film Festival.

TODAY’S NOTABLE TEXAN BILL PAXTON For MAY 18th 2014 Actor Bill Paxton was born William Archibald Paxton on May 17, 1955 in Fort Worth, Texas. He moved to Los Angeles, California at age 18, where he found work in the film industry as a set dresser for Roger Corman's New World Pictures. He made his film debut in the Corman film Crazy Mama (1975), directed by Jonathan Demme. Moving to New York, Paxton studied acting under Stella Adler at New York University.

Beautiful version of Neil Young playing Ambulance Blues from the Trunk Show by Jonathan Demme.
Jonathan Demme selling vast art collection in Pa.
Went to Slamdance in 2011 and sat in a small room listening to Neil Young and Jonathan Demme talk shop. Just totally unreal.
Watching Working Girl. Haven't seen this in a long time. Oh Melanie Griffith, you were so good for awhile there. I loved Something Wild directed by Jonathan Demme. Then you did this. Then you married Don Johnson.
NOTE TO FILM SCHOOL DWEEBS: Director Paul Thomas Anderson only attended film school for two days, preferring to learn the craft by watching films by the filmmakers he liked, as well as watching films accompanied by director's audio commentary. In 2012 at Australia's Melbourne premiere of The Master at The Astor Theatre, Anderson spoke candidly of his brief experiences at film school, remarking on his frustration at the 'dull silent movies' displayed by lecturers who tried to make movie watching feel 'as much like homework as possible. Anderson cites Martin Scorsese, Robert Altman, Jonathan Demme, Stanley Kubrick, Orson Welles, and Max Ophüls as his main influences as a filmmaker. IF YOU'RE NOT EXPERIENCING IT AT SCHOOL, YOU'RE WASTING YOU MONEY!

Something Wild is a 1986 American action comedy film directed by Jonathan Demme and starring Melanie Griffith, Jeff Daniels and Ray Liotta. It was screened out of competition at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival.[2]
: J.t.'s 31 DAYS of HORROR '13 - "The Silence of the Lambs". The debate still goes on whether this is a horror movie or a drama, but most seem to refer to it as a thriller. The groundbreaking novel by Thomas Harris was adapted in 1991 by screwball comedy director Jonathan Demme, and starred Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, and Ted Levine. It went on to sweep the Oscars that year, earning five wins in all the major categories. Foster stars as Clarice Starling, an F.B.I. trainee who is appointed the task of interviewing notorious serial killer, and cannibal, Hannibal Lecter (Hopkins), to gain insight on how to capture the still-at-large murderer known only to the police as "Buffalo Bill" (Levine), who has a tendency to skin his victims and has just captured a Senator's daughter. Clarice will be tested both physically as well as mentally, as she must break through to Lecter in order to track down Bill and solve the case, before it is too late. Excellent, well-crafted storytelling at it's best going on in this ...

watching you in "Crazy Mama" (Jonathan Demme, 1975) Looked like a fun, speedy shoot. Do you remember having fun making it?
One of my favorite things about Jonathan Demme's Something Wild is that John Waters and John Sayles play bit parts.
Watching the Jonathan Demme doc Neil Young Journeys. To hear him you'd never believe he's 67 and the songs 40 odd. Talent is timeless.
I was given Christopher Walken (I know, right!?) by Jim Jr Steendahl I sure hope it's not cheating that I asked for help from IMDB. That man has been working, dood. Movie I loved— "Who Am I This Time?" directed by Jonathan Demme, an American Playhouse production co-starring Susan Sarandon. I really wanted to see him play more romantic leads! Maybe he still will. Movie I Liked— it's a tie with True Romance and Pulp Fiction. Does his small but extremely memorable appearance in "Annie Hall" count? I could also watch that Fatboy Slim video every day of the rest of my life. Movie I Hated— I've never seen them, but did you know that he's in "Gigli" and "Mousehunt"? Movie I Hated that I liked— "Brainstorm" Plus how can you not absolutely love a guy who likes Will Braden's Henri so much? Like the status and I'll give you an actor.
