Dear Filmmmakers,

Has anyone seen shopgirl featuring steve martin. It really had some serious visual storytelling, especially the lighting, it looked very symbolic to the story and had some beautiful scenes.

Dear Filmmakers,

If you have not seen Shopgirl WATCH IT!
I really does have amazing visual storytelling and beatifull shots and music.
On the story side story wise I give it a 7 out of ten, and Acting wise a give it a 9 out of 10.
BUT cinematography wise I give it a TEN!

AWSOME FILM

I really liked this film.
Steve Martin is a great writer.
Too bad he's such a terrific comedic actor. It will probably keep him from the respect he deserves as a writer.
I think the film had just the right look for the story being told.
I especially like the garish look & art direction in the girls house.
Reminds me of my first apartment in Long Beach!
Well, they didn't have 1,000 cockroaches in Shop Girl, but other than that...

Not yet. I just bought the audio book (Steve Martin reads it himself) for my sister though. I'll listen to it when she's done and will probably wait for the movie to come out on DVD.

I love some of Steve Martin's work and am happy to say that he's finally getting the respect he deserves. This year Steve was awarded the Mark Twain Prize and honored at the Kennedy Center. The ceremony was taped as a special and presented pn PBS in October 2005.

Ah, yes, I saw the Mark Twain awards.
Some funny stuff said that night.
I loved it when Steve Martin got up to accept, and one of the things he said was:
"and to quote Mark Twain; 'whatever you do, don't name an award after me'"
