Thompson on Hollywood

True confession. I love Sally Potter, from the great Tilda Swinton-starrer Orlando to the sexy verse-poem Yes. But her films just don't do a lot of stateside business.

Potter's latest, the fashion-industry film Rage--starring Jude Law in drag, plus Judi Dench, Steve Buscemi and Eddie Izzard--is one of the first feature-length films to premiere on mobile phones. As I neither saw this film at a film fest nor at a screening nor as a screener, I could download the movie to my BlackBerry via the Babelgum mobile app, but I think I'll just take the old-fashioned route and order the DVD.
