Letters to the editor about Take One no. 49.



Mr. Wise,

Thanks for the cover and profile [Michael Dowse's It's All Gone Pete Tong It's All Gone Pete Tong is a 2004 fictional independent biopic about Frankie Wilde (Paul Kaye), a DJ who goes completely deaf. The title is Cockney rhyming slang for "it's all gone wrong". The term also seems to be based on the phrase "it's all gone pear shaped". ]. Much appreciated. It gets lonely for us filmmakers here on the West Coast sometimes. Look for our new film Everything's Gone Green early next year based on an original Douglas Coupland screenplay.

Best regards,

Elizabeth Yake

Dear Editor,

You seem to have overlooked 19 Months [in "The Most Popular Canadian Films Released in the GTA GTA Grand Theft Auto (legal)
GTA Grand Theft Auto (video game)
GTA Greater Toronto Area (Canada)

 between 1994 and 2004"]. It played three consecutive weeks here [in Toronto] last May--two weeks at Canada Square
''Canada Square is also the name of an office/retail complex in Toronto.


Canada Square is a public square at Canary Wharf, on the Isle of Dogs in London's Docklands.
 and one week at the Carlton. Not a big deal really, but I don't want the film to be lumped with those that only drew "100 lost souls" in a two-week run at the Carlton. I can assure you we did more than 100 in single screenings. Perhaps you can update that next time you do one of these lists. Otherwise, keep up the good work.

Best regards,

Randall Cole

Sorry Randall, it was an oversight. Your film should have been listed between Love That Boy and Perfect Pie Perfect Pie is a 2000 play written by Canadian playwright Judith Thompson. The story concerns the childhoods of Patsy and Marie (later known as Francesca) and the impact it had on their lives. . Editor

Dear Editor,

It's Warren Sonoda, director of Ham & Cheese. Thank you so much for the awesome article Tom Lyons and your magazine put into the current issue ["Black Walk Takes a Walk on the Funny Side"]. Your coverage of Black Walk was so amazing a·maze

 for us and our company. It is much appreciated. Thankfully, I am going to be directing my next feature in June, so hopefully I can keep the story going. (Which is the whole point of the struggle, isn't it? To stay in the game.) Again, thanks for the support.

Dear Wyndham,

Thank you for running my review [My Mother Is an Alien: Ten Takes on Life and Film by George Melnyk, page 54] and for the embarrassingly enthusiastic value you attribute to my life and work. No wonder so many film academics resent me! My one regret is that your copy editor didn't put quotation marks quotation marks
