Hey pallies, likes I just loves to find Dino-love bein' expressed in more and more unique ways all over the Dino-sphere! Today's Dino-passion comes via the on-line presence of "The Jerusalem Post."
From an interview of "celebrated" Israeli movie director Avi Nesher by Miss Hannah Brown comes the Dino-discovery that Mr. Nesher is, in the words of Miss Brown, "a guy who decorates his office with German posters from Dean Martin’s Matt Helm movies." (btw, just to lets you know, I am deeply saddened by Miss Brown's dissin' words of our Dino's performance as Matt Helm...but this post is 'bout Mr. Nesher's Dino-devotion, not Miss Brown's poor taste.)
Now likes how Dino-brillant is that.....an accomplished Israeli movie director diggs our Dino so so much that he covers the walls of his office with Dino-decorations a la Matt Helm. Man, woulda I loves to see Mr. Nesher's Dino-homage decorations and likes to be able to speak to him 'bout his Dino-devotion!!!!!
I tried and I tried pallies likes to find some of dem German Dino-posters, but to no avail. If any of you dudes have any leads on where I mights finds some, please give a Dino-holler. Am sharin' just the first few paragraphs of the interview, and if you woulda likes to read more, just clicks on the tagg of this Dino-gram to goes to "The Jerusalem Post' pad to checks out the whole thin'. Dino-psyched, DMP
The Jerusalem Post
Once I was Avi Nesher
By HANNAH BROWN
Celebrated director discusses emotional new film.
For a guy who decorates his office with German posters from Dean Martin’s Matt Helm movies (featuring the Rat Pack front man as a sleazier James Bond), director Avi Nesher talks a lot about redemption.
That’s just one of the contradictions about Nesher, and why it can be hard to characterize him and the impact he’s had on Israeli movies. Another is that while he dresses like a kibbutznik in casual clothes and flip-flops, his office is in a beachfront complex near Tel Aviv and features a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean.
Meeting to discuss his latest film, Once I Was, which was just released all over the country, he is excited about the movie and eager to talk. But the phone doesn’t stop ringing, and most of the calls concern details of the release. Asking his assistant to handle most of them, he takes a few, apologizing profusely, like a first-time director on the brink of success rather than one of the veterans...
