Dog Meet Dog

Over at the main website, a new full review is posted for Mike White's Year of the Dog, a film that is affecting at moments but baffling and annoying for its surrounding ineptitudes. The best that can be said for it, besides the fact that Molly Shannon's dog Pencil is the cutest actor in modern movies, is that it's leagues better than Alpha Dog, the worst movie of 2007 so far, and—only because it's new this week on DVD—the temporary denizen of the DVD Spotlight. The silver lining here is the enormous incentive that Alpha Dog supplies me to write a new review, stat, so that I can supplant this piece of trash from my own homepage. Yes, it's that bad.

My name is Allal el Alaoui .I am a chronicler and cinemagoer.My dream is to see the world united and everybody smiles again.I have written a project with the help of my colleagues and friends namely Razak , Mustapha Hayran , Essafi and Ahmed Bakkali.
My initiative tackles a noble goal that gathers two gigantic dreaming compagnies ,Hollywood and Bollywood, into a glittering and yet artistic night where the world enjoys a wonderful meeting between stars and super-stars , actors and actresses in order to serve global peace without referring to any geographical space nor any ethnic, religious and political status ,but instead this show or event relies on the mutual respect between people and dialog of cultures . I am in hopes some of your sponsors will be able to help me with my project. I was able to research your email and I’m excited to learn more about your help.I have interviewed Yash Shopra when he was in Marrakech( please google my name as Allal El Alaoui on Indian Cinema ) and i think he is a wonderful man.I want to project his movie Veer-Zaara because it is a movie about love , passion and peace this coming summer in Casablanca . This is a big project and i just wonder if one of your investors, sponsors could consider my idea seriously so as to make it successful,( Hollywood-Bollywood for the sake of peace .)

P.S : i have a financial plan ( DEVIS) Made by my production designer .it is ready to be emailed to you whenever necessary.
SNRT,Moroccan National Television is willing to give full assistance in covering the show via its TV cable and so is CCM, the National center of cinema . There are other fervent institutions in Morocco who are waiting for the time of the show to come in order to invest in this project.

And Happy 4th of July!

@John T., and @Everybody: I dream of it, I really do! I'm still learning my new job and re-learning how to manage my responsibilities and still make time for this project... We're coming to a breakthrough soon, though, including a whole new section of the website. (The blog itself will keep growing less important compared to the site, I imagine, but it won't go away.)

Thanks for being kind enough to ask!
