Imagine an alternate universe where Jerry Schatzberg's underrated 1973 Palme d'Or-winning "Scarecrow" was a goofy comedy with Bill Cosby and Jack Lemmon (for further fun, imagine "Panic in Needle Park" in the same way). It sounds silly, but it could've happened had the stars lined up differently.

The Jarecki family's ventures into feature film making certainly haven't had the best of luck, have they? After making names for themselves with documentaries such as "Capturing The Friedmans" and "The Outsider," brothers Nicholas and Andrew's recent efforts have hit stumbling blocks. Nicholas' adaptation of Brett Easton Ellis' cult favourite "The Informers" was met with scathing reviews while Andrew's "All Good Things," a romantic drama starring Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst, based on the life of real estate fortune heir, Robert Durst, was long shelved by The Weinstein Company before finally finding another distributor.
