The Egyptian Theatre in LA will be hosting a special screening of The Exorcist on Tuesday May 6th which will feature a discussion of the film with Maynard and director William Friedkin:
The Modern School of Film’s FILM: MASTERS series screens movies hand-picked by renown cultural figures, followed by in-depth discussions with them.
A favorite film of Maynard Keenan from the band Tool, who joins us for a discussion following the screening with William Friedkin, moderated by Modern School of Film founder Robert Milazzo.
1973, Warner Brothers, 121 min, Dir: William Friedkin
Friedkin adapted William Peter Blatty’s bone-chilling best-seller into the classic American horror film in which Catholic priests Jason Miller and Max von Sydow go head-to-head with the unholy one, inhabiting the body of young Linda Blair. “I auditioned 500 girls and went with Linda because I felt she was the most intelligent, most pulled-together youngster I had ever met.” – Friedkin. With Ellen Burstyn.
Special Ticket Prices: $10 Member, $12 Student/Senior and $15 General. No vouchers accepted for this or any other specially-priced program.
It’s a cool movie, so sounds like a pretty good night out. Grab your tickets here.
*shakes head slowly with eyes closed*
why do you shake your head? at first my reactoin was another lame move but then i thought why would i think that? its not a bad thing. its a classic movie and if they do this with more famous type people i dont think its such a bad thing. its a movie and a little chat. not like hes selling Pepsi Next or something lke that. which could happen in time. baahaha 😉
I know, I know. It’s got nothing to do with the post.
I think it’s a great film and sadly I think I’m falling into the hole of the “give us the new album” shit.
God, I just want a new single, and I’d wait months for the album.
I’m not angry at the band…. It’s just fucking depressing.
Anyone else agree?
My sentiments exactly. I love the movie and it would be interesting to watch the Q&A after but it would be awesome to get something musically… anything. Release Problem 8 as a single, if it exists. Lately, I’ve been listening to Tool’s extended live tracks and segues on YouTube just to have something new from them that I can listen to. Some of it is really cool.
I take it as good news that he is hanging out in LA. Also him watching the movie a few times and discussing it in a panel may put him in an interesting frame of mind for writing some haunting lyrics.
Generally I’d agree, however he’s more likely spending time in LA with APC and Puscifer at the moment rather than Tool. Hopefully once his 50th birthday celebrations are out of the way he might find his way to the Loft…
Adam might as well be up next with his take on “Panic Room”, then Justin can critique Danny’s role in that Thanksgiving turkey animation. Or maybe Justin would be better suited for a reading of Green Eggs and Ham seemings how he’s the accent and all. But yes, good that MJK is in L.A., hopefully laying down vox. They spent nearly a month on the road together, all them harmonizing parts and such ought be coming together nicely.
Anybody check out “Smile” by Deftones (apparently from Eros)?
it def gets old! but i guess im getting even more use to it. which is prob kinda good but…. ah well
Kanaduh should record this!
