SEEING JOHN MALKOVICH

Here’s how blogging works. First you run a site for four or five years, then one day John Malkovich turns up at your house:

Also, my friend Bryan appears wearing a Pope hat for some reason. How did this come to be? Simple; John’s sister Melissa is a dear friend of this site, and arranged for us to meet while her brother (a wide-ranging blog reader) is in Sydney filming J.M. Coetzee’s Disgrace. Nadia cooked (veal involtini); pals brought wine; everyone talked politics and art and sport for about six hours.

Which wasn’t a stretch for Malkovich, who’s outrageously well-informed (and hilarious) on just about any subject you might name, from 1950s British cars to Portuguese architecture. Worlds-collide moment of the night came when John asked, in that voice: “What’s the story with Margo Kingston?”

    1. I can see soccer on the TV reflected in one of the pictures, but I’d love to know why the fellow on the left seems to be wearing a cardboard bishop’s hat.

    1. Malkovich: The best actor in American cinema, and one of it’s more entertaining directors (you should see his adaptation, Dancer Upstairs- magnificent). He is my favorite actor, on par with Gary Oldman…who, oddly, is another right-winger.

      Hmm, didn’t occur to me that my fave actors are righties…Malkovich is famous for exasperating people in his art crowd; truly a legend (I have no idea how the brit Oldman turned into a Republican, but he really is one).

      I’m envious, Blair. You have one good luck in the people you get to have close to you: if I had one actor I’d like to pick the brain of (and thank God, I don’t: no star struck lad, this boy, thank you), it would be Malkovich.

      Allright Blair, so make good- WHY? What did this have to do with politics? I’m really curious here, especially to find Malkovich is still connected to life and not in star-star land (which amazes and impresses me).

      Tell. Us. About. The. Politics. We’re curious. The two words “Margo Kingston” aren’t enough.

    1. I will first say that there is no one here who is a bigger fan of John Malkovich than me.  He’s a very excellent actor.

      However, I do have two questions.  First, just who is this sister, Melissa, who is such a dear friend of this site?  And second, did she mention anything whatsoever about secret stores of Sumerian mead?  Because the last thing I want is to be awaken in the middle of the night by Yippie, my attack dachsund, barking ferociously at a motley cohort made up of Tim Blair, Malkovich, and the Pope, trying to work the lock to my storeroom in the basement in a secret place.

    1. Oh GOD. Disgrace was the book my ex-fiance was reading—for years, because he had this pretentious idea that you should read “slowly” like people “used to do in Jane Austen’s time.” So he would sit there staring intently at a page for about an hour, giving the impression that he was not so much reading as trying to absorb the ink on the page into his brain. Watching him read was the opposite of restful. (By the way, my ex-fiance had a Master’s Degree in English, so he had had whatever ability he may have had to simply enjoy a book quite destroyed by the time I met him.)

      Anyway, I picked the book up one day and read it through, as I was still under the impression that the ex’s opinion of what was “excellent” should be considered. Well. If your bag is hero-less “life in post-modern Seth Effrika sucks” stories than it was quite well-written. The caustic observations on academia in SA were quite good, though. It should make a great movie that I’ll never see.

    1. About five years ago, when he was asked who he’d like to fight in a battle to the death, Malkovich responded with Robert Fisk and George Galloway.  Even if his filmography included no more than a few episodes of Full House, that would still make him one of my favorite actors be default.

      There’s an audio file, if JM is game to listen in.

      FWIW I think that Margo is sympathetic to Pauline, but couldn’t bring myself to listen too long.

    1. Don’t know if these quotes are real, but I like them.

      John Malkovich: The other day I was walking down the street in the rural town where we live (in France) and a truck hit me, rather hard, going fairly fast. And he starts to drive off, so I chase after him, reach in the window and grab his steering wheel. And I say, ‘Normally, in a civilized society, when we hit someone with a truck, we might inquire as to their well being.’ So he said, ‘I’m sorry,’ and I said, ‘Great. Try and be a little more careful and that would be fantastic, and so sorry to have troubled you.’ I walk another 30 meters and he pulls up beside me a second time—and asks me if he can have an autograph.

      John Malkovich: I’m not prone to talk much about what I do. But then I never have been. I mean, I don’t think hookers rush home from work and say, “Honey! I had the most incredible hand-job today!”

    1. Someone else also visited Australia recently, Tim. Why didn’t you invite her to your house? You have so much in common – you were a pioneer of blogging, she pioneered e-commerce:

      In 1992 Von Teese’s boyfriend (an early internet aficionado) convinced her to create a website where she could sell her photos, and before long dita.net was one of the first adult sites on the internet. ‘This was back in the days when people would send us a cheque in the mail, and when we got it we’d mail them the photos,’ she laughs.

    1. One of the more interesting explanations I have seen for the origin of ‘pear shaped’ as in, going wrong, is that it relates to the use of hot-air balloons in WWI.

    1. #153- why “Hedgehog”?

    1. On the subject of knowing famous people, an acquaintance of mine named Archie used to be Scooby Do on the Channel 9 Saturday morning kiddies show called “The Channel Niners”; his appointment was relatively brief, however- one morning after a big Friday night at the pub, he was lurking to one side of the studio and nursing a hangover when a little urchin decided it’d be rather a wheeze to pull scooby Do’s tail. Scooby didn’t take kindly to this, and hoofed the little basterds up the clacker while exclaiming on camera (muffled, but audible) to “fuck off you little cunt”, causing a shocked silence from the hostess and much wailing from the punted piccaninny. He later vomited inside the head of the costume before fleeing the building, just ahead of security.

      We were dubbed “Loathsome Spotted Reptiles” by Sylvia de Costa Roque, who penned the social pages in the Brisbane Courier Mail in the 1980s, due to our outstanding performance at a Law Ball.

    1. It probably helped her come to this view when we continually referred to her as “Sylvia de Cocka Roach”.

    1. Of *course* he’s outrageously well-informed and hilarious: He’s a Southern Illinois conservative, like me. We’re all a nest of good eggs, and we all want to take out Fisk with a length of rusty piano wire.

      Really though, his family is beloved where I grew up, active in state ecological causes (real ones, that keep places beautiful), local newspapers, the whole bit. I’m sure he’s as every bit as good as the bunch he came from.

    1. #177- I believe she plagiarised it from a monologue by Peter Cook featured in the first “Secret Policemans Ball” where he was playing a judge summing up. No matter, it was a badge we wore with pride. Probably should have had blazers made- it’s sort of a RWDB for the eighties. And wasn’t Kerry Packer supposed to be “The Goanna”?

      BTW, scroll down through the comments on this MI item- there’s some little scamps having a jolly old chuckle about Pamela Bone’s diagnosis with Jimmy Dancer- those lefties really are a caring lot. I might join in- I hope the authors of those items get a flesh-eating bacterial infection of their unused reproductive organs, an infestation of botfly in their pointy heads and Crohns disease; how’s that for sharing?

    1. I must confess that the only thing I’ve seen Mr M in was that yarn where he was a baddie and killed all the other crims and then the plane slid down the street in Las Vegas for about 20km and he got killed and the only ones that survived was that bloke with the long hair and the sheila. Far be it from me to offer a critique but I thought it was just awful.

      Be that as it may and having said that, let me say this, we all do things that seem like a good idea at the time, so it’s off to the video shop for me to have a look at some of the other gear, now I see that he might be a person of interest because all the posts here seem to be generally of the view that he is a thoroughly decent fellow.

      But I can’t come at that old french stuff where they all wear that frilly gear and powder. I just can’t.

    1. #187- Yes that’s him. He was in that other stinker where Rusty Crows ex root got flattened by a Kenworth. Happy ending at least.

      Have just finished watching the entire 2 seasons of Deadwood, which was interesting from the point of dealing with government interference, witty dialogue and the use of the word cocksucker about 8 million times.

      Speaking of involuntary incontinence, there was this gem:

    1. Malkovich is what Id refer to as an old style actor. Not his methods but his apparent drive to keep acting in pretty well anything.
      A lot of stars wont touch “iffy” scripts or roles, as it might damage their “brand name”.
      A lot of repected actors from the 60,s-80’s starred in some awful crap between their major roles. Think of the piles of spaggetti westerns, swords and sandals, and cheap “crisis of the month” movies spat out in that time. But occasionaly an actor would “own” one of these movies and turn it into magic. Think of Richard Burton in “the wicker man” (NOT nicolas cage), or Donald Sutherland in the 70’s “invasion of the body snatchers”. Both should have sunk, both held up well because of the actors.
      A halfway decent actor can sleepwalk through a well shot and written movie (God knows tom Cruise has been doing it for 20 years now) but a great actor will lift dross.
      I loved him in Napolian (Gerad Depradeu was Napolian he was Tallyrand?) though Gerad had the best line “you are shit in a silk stocking”.
      I havent seen a lot of his stuff but most comes accross well, does understated menace well.

    1. Sorry, frollickingmole, but it was Edward Woodward in The Wicker Man, and there’s no way that movie should have sunk, regardless.
