Real concept drawings of “Lord of Light” (aka “Argo”) by Jack Kirby for Science-Fiction Land. The movie was supposed to be turned into a theme park eventually.

Congrats to the two Quebecois (Canadians) nominated for the academy awards: Kim Nguyen and Yan England. I met them both (briefly) and I’m really happy for them.

With Les Invasions Barbares, Incendies and now this, the cinema of Quebec is getting a lot of exposure lately and I feel really proud.

FĂ©licitations messieurs, vous faites rayonner notre culture!

I want to have a career like Johnny Depp, Sean Penn and Jack Nicholson. I want to win an Oscar one day. […] Look at Leo. His career can only go downhill from here. He’ll always be the guy on the boat.

*winning best foreign picture is not the same as best director folks.
