Fog City Mavericks
30 September 2007 | by gruvyman2See all my reviews

Why does San Francisco sound so envious and insecure in it's vain attempt to focus attention on itself. Boasting of a cinematic legacy that it can only validate by referencing the very city that it continually tries to disassociate from. The film and television capitols of the world, not just the U.S., are in Los Angeles. FACT.

Francis Ford Coppoloa, the so called San Francisco film maker, is often portrayed as the guiding force that gave birth to the "The Godfather". WRONG. The movie was initiated and developed by Parmount Pictures executive Robert Evans. In Los Angeles. He handed the film to FF Cope at a time when the director had not yet hardly flickered. Oh yeah, and unless she's recently moved, his daughter Sofia lives in L.A. Not Frisco. Ooops. We're not "supposed" to call it that as all of the film making "indies" from SF seem to always say as they're having lunch, dinner or drinks on the Sunset Strip. Uh-huh, you know where that is.

Your bitchy and self congratulatory whining would take on an air of greater self respect and credence if you never set foot on the ground you so claim to be superior to in this film. Please, see what you can do to develop your own truly independent film community. Think about it as you remember Francis and George are giving a Best Director Award to the "New York" film maker Martin Scorcese at the Academy Awards. In Los Angeles!
