    You made a dumb comment suggesting I actually thought Wheatley woke up one day deciding it would be a good idea to remake a Hitchcock movie and settled on Rebecca. I answered in kind.

    Today I saw the Netflix film Enola Holmes. I found it completely enjoyable.

    My point was that if Wheatley was remaking a flawed or lesser known Hitchcock, I would assume there was some artistic promise in it. When you're remaking a classic and not putting a different slant on it, it's probably just a cash-in.

    From every interview I've watched there's a greater emphasis on the book, not Hitchcock's film. As in, it's another adaption of the book. You keep talking as if it's a Hitchcock remake (hence why your suggestion that he do a different Hitchcock film is dumb) but if that's your logic, what does that make the 1979 and 1997 miniseries? Hitchcock remakes for television?

    You've also claimed that:
    But this interview seems to say the complete opposite:

    Right, because a director is really going to come out and just admit it was a project borne out of laziness or lack of ideas :rolleyes:

    You're being unreasonable for whatever reason, so I'll just drop it.

    I thought it was great and De Niro played a delusional hack comedian perfectly. The scenes in his basement talking to cardboard cutouts of celebrities as his mother yells at him from upstairs is classic stuff. I've listened to the movie referenced so much on Opie & Anthony Radio clips over the years that it felt like I'd already seen it, pretty weird experience.

    Definitely up there for me in Scorsese's filmog now.
