breaking bad

Extras and superstars

I had to laugh at Peter Bradshaw's Guardian review of the new Madonna film 'Filth and Wisdom':

She has made a movie so incredibly bad that Berlin festival goers were staggering around yesterday in a state of clinical shock, deathly pale and mewing like maltreated kittens. She is also the producer and co-author of the script. If she'd done the location catering as well, they'd have had a Jonestown situation on their hands.

LOL. Apart from that, how did you like the film Mr Bradshaw?

A tangentially related anecdote just came to mind. One of my friends used to be a film extra. He worked on 'First Knight' with Richard Gere and Sean Connery. He says Gere was good natured and easy going, and everyone liked working with him. Apparently Connery was a complete git.
