I'm thinking Woody Allen...the early, funny one, not the recent stupid one...

You're in luck, Tweety. Requiem for a dream was made by Darren Aronofsky, not Jim Jarmush...

But that movie as a basis for your life? Surely it can't be that bad, i know you're addicted to correcting bad grammar, but still....

Phew! My wonky memory has nabbed me a director! I just like the way he uses symbols and mood to tell a story rather than spelling it out like the audience is mentally challenged. It's a dark but wonderful movie!

Dark is good!!

Make the audience work is always a good creed.

But a lot of the time the audience is mentally challenged (judging by the majority of movies out there...). But there are exceptions, thank god...

If the story of your life would be filmed, who would you like to direct it?

{Thanks Jase for the idea}

In my case, it would definitely be David Lynch.

How about you?

No worries, David lynch is a good choice too.
But i'd want some fantasy explosions and space travel, so george lucas. Not strictly biographical, but it's my film and i want to shoot baddies in a space ship

If all my other choices are too busy to do the project - I'll go with Guy Ritchie (as long as he leaves Madonna at home). I can see him doing my life story in a "Snatch" and "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels" theme.

For Beerman - Ang Lee would be good. Something on the order of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon". I can see it now... The green silk Riverdance shirt and chestwig flowing seductively as Beerman leaps from keg to keg, down to the floor, back up onto the brew kettle, in to his office and taking out each his minions (who are blowing off their work) with every move. He finally floats down into his desk chair to resume his game of spider solitaire. (Beerman would be star of show, yes? He would be liking that very much!)

Hmmm... the Life and Times of TP by Trey Parker and Matt Stone would be a classic. We'd have to blame something other than Canada, though. Maybe Greenland. Or Denver.

Is good, I am thinking. I am like. Especially taking out of minions....

What abouts: Beerback Mountains. Is story of lonely ships rancher-person in 1963 Wyomings. One lonely day, lonely ships rancher is visited by travelling Michael Flatley, who is also lonely. Many colds and snowys days and nights pass with nothing to do but watch ships. So, in fit of passion one day, they invent Riverdance as way to stay warm. And rest is history.....

I was actually thinking more along the lines of an old Errol Flynn type movie... Swashbuckling, swinging around on ropes, rescue fair maidens, etc...

Or Mutiny on the Bounty for that matter... Or Dread Pirate Roberts...
