The conversation at the Vice Squad office (read: Martone's house) went something like this:
John: Hey, ANN says Mamoru Oshii wants to go to Poland for his next movie.
Me: Mamoru Oshii wants to pole dance in his next movie?!
See, my ears are all blown out from having to listen to the audio on our myriad of videos nonstop for the last few days.
Anyway, as much as I'd like to see Oshii pole dance (I place a hefty value on novelty), it turns out he actually wants to shoot his next (live-action) film in Europe, specifically Poland, and that he wants Gianna Jun (the star of the upcoming live-action take on Blood: the Last Vampire) to act in the film.
Cool beans! I've never been to Poland. It's one of those places that calls it “football” instead of “soccer” right?
