Marty DiBergi is the greatest living American film director to have gotten his start directing dogfood comercials. The dirty stinkers down at the Academy don't know what the Hell they're on about. I mean, losing to Milos Foreman & "Amadeus" in 1984 was bad enough, but they've ignored him ever since! Not even a nomination in 20 years! A travesty, proof positive that there is no justice in this world.

Yeah, Marti got ripped, but what about that other greatest living director, Mark Borchardt?
Mark my words: Someday "Northwestern" *will* be finished, and it will be a MASTERPIECE!

If Michael Moore can win for Best Documentary, Marty should have, like, eight.

That's right - NOBODY can capture "the sights, the sounds and the smells of a hard-working rock band on the road" the way DiBurgi can. If you thought Scorcese's "The Last Waltz" was a masterpiece, you haven't seen the fruit of DiBurgi's 1982 "Tap Into America" tour coverage...

Perhaps Tiki Central's own "Bobbi Fleckman", Purple Jade should weigh in on this travesty....

Oh great, now my aural image of Purple Jade's ruined. Now instead of reading her posts in a smokey Naw'lins accent (with just a hint of drawl) I'll be hearing Fran Dresher!
