Three filmmakers on film: in the Telegraph, Danny Boyle talks about his fondness for 1982’s "The Thing." In the Guardian, "The League of Gentlemen" creator Jeremy Dyson writes about his earliest filmic inspiration, TV series spin-off "Holiday on the Buses." We have no context for anything this British, but maybe some of you do. Also in the Guardian, Chuck Palahniuk, who isn’t actually a filmmaker, but who we’re including here for sake of convenience (one could make the argument that calling him a writer is a bit generous too — yeah, yeah, me-ow), writes about what "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest" means to him.
Elsewhere, Craig Phillips has the short he wrote, "Just Shy," up online. The San Francisco Chronicle has a guide to the summer of indie movies, and have you been reading Salon’s awesome TV finale recaps? All the cool kids are there, including one Choire Sicha with a hilarious "Desperate Housewives" piece.
