Blunt talk about AEON FLUX
For fans of Charlize Theron in black Lycra, there was no better movie released last year than Aeon Flux. And a few of you may recall that I liked the movie, both for the Lycra outfits and because it was a smart and thoughtful adaptation of a very unique animated TV series. Well, Aeon Flux is now available on DVD, and I still recommend it for those who like cool science fiction ideas. But what really makes the DVD worthwhile is a full-length audio commentary by the film’s two screenwriters, Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. These guys are a fun pair, and they’re refreshingly blunt as they talk about why they’re not particularly happy with sections of the movie as released. If you’re at all interested in the crafts of screenwriting and filmmaking, get hold of the Aeon Flux DVD and listen to this frank and witty commentary.
