... do you not see how that movie would be viewed as indicating that Weinstein didn't do the things he was accused of? It would come across as hagiography, you get that right?

Yes, that is my point. I agree with Knox, it’s very hosed up that they did this and then hid behind “well, her life was just a jumping off point, of course it’s fiction, no real association was intended.” And nobody would hide behind the “it’s fiction” excuse if they did this with a more culturally charged story. But they are relying on the general perception that she was not really a victim for cover.

Yeah I realized and edited. Anyway I get the impression that Matt Damon's kind of a scumbag, or maybe he's just trying to generate personal negative publicity to draw controversy away from his scummy movie.

You don’t perceive this as a possible problem? Hollywood can steal the rough outline of your life events, and do so so blatantly that it’s clear who is being referenced without needing to name them, make millions of dollars off of your story, and you are owed nothing, not money, not an opportunity to provide input, absolutely nothing?

Would this movie exist if Amanda Knox didn’t?

I read the Wikipedia article and it seems pretty different from what happened to Amanda Knox aside from the premise of American student wrongfully accused of murder in a foreign country. If they just changed names and called it a day, that'd be a different story. Although yes, the writer probably should have avoided mentioning her name directly.

Again, the fictional character of Shmamanda Shmox does things that Amanda Knox was accused of doing, which have also completely dominated the narrative of what actually happened. Her point is "I'm forever associated with terrible things that someone else did to someone else, stop associating my name with those things and also with different terrible things that people already think I did."

It's like putting out a movie about Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS where there actually wasn't a mass shooting, it was all a leftist government conspiracy false flag operation. "Well gee, since that's not what really happened this is totally above-board"

Jesus I know it's Ridley Scott and a stacked cast but the House of Gucci trailer looks horrendous. For some reason everyone's doing bad Italian accents and Jared Leto is in old man makeup for no reason.

I hope everyone got paid ridiculous money because it looks like it will be forgotten in a week besides gunning for a costume design award.

I think there are a couple clips out there, there are a few different actors. I think a couple of brief clips made their way into the final episode, like there's a shot where Sansa ages like 2 years between cuts.

I suppose Corden's show gets decent ratings or whatever, but he's not a big star, he's a VERY limited actor, and from all accounts is unpleasant to work with. I'm not sure why he's considered a go-to.
