Oh yea, liked the way you did the opening title with the throwing stars.
    Yeah, we definitely had some audio issues. I've learned a lot from that process. I have never heard that the shot was too dark, and never thought that before. Interesting. Anyone else think the shot was too dark? and why?

    I just realized a little link. The entire day he is wanting to put on the headband, and he is carying it with him so there is a connection it is just very vague. Also we see the different Kanji Symbols throughout the first part of the movie. Oh well, live and learn.

    The stylized dialogue was a lot of fun here. I thought the last line about forest fires was particuarly hilarious, but then, I like random things, so what can I say.
    The kung fu sequences were OK, but could have used more rehearsal. I mean, I understand we're not talking Peking Opera here, but when you shoot a sequence like Tsui Hark, you expect Tsui Hark performances, and your stars weren't quite at that level.
    Also, what's the point of making the first half of the film so long? It really drags out the part we don't care about (his boring life) at the expense of the part we DO care about (his exciting ninja-life). The point was made by the combination of the title and the toothbrush shot. The whole office sequence was basically extraneous (although a little bit is funny).
    I like your hero - I think he needs another movie to play around in.
    Thanks, see you next fest.

LOL, Matt always had a smile on his face and has the patience I think you would need to be a great director. Isnt the randomness in this film great?!
