What with Tintinmania all over cinemaland … there’s people speculating about other comics to bring to the big screen … and so here’s some dreams of mine: Jeunet & Caro getting back together to work with Boucq on some Jérôme Moucherot story. Michel Gondry finally making his masterpiece inspired by Franquin. Wilhelm Busch‘s Max und Moritz by Herzog. But most of all: Julius Knipfl or any other Ben Katchor creation by Hirokazu Kore Eda – assisted by Martin Scorcese, for his knowledge of NYC. Or Joe Apichatpong Weerasethakul interpreting Katchor‘s “Cheap novelties” in collaboration with Woody Allen, why not. Or even Kar-Wai Wong or Anh Hùng Trần assisted by some James Toback, Paul Schrader or other. (RIP Jun Ichikawa.) Just as long as the mighty Abel Ferrara isn’t involved – Katchor’s work is way too subtle for that ;-) Can’t see Amos Kollek doing it either.
