They… have just wrapped up production on the remake (due in April 2009) of Grey Gardens. Grey. Gardens. The documentary. About Edith and "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale living in a filthy, unkempt mansion in the Hamptons? They remade a f***ing documentary.
And this is the thanks we get for buying tickets to see the marvelous I've Heard the Mermaids Singing back in 1987? A remake of a non–fiction film (available on Region 1 DVD from The Criterion Collection)?!
Memo to Mme. Polly Vandersma: Hope you've got alternative plans for the spring.
