Okay. I can see that; originally when the article said he was stopping because he wasn't making any money anymore, I'd assumed Germany was cutting back on the tax incentives and write-offs it was offering film productions, and he wasn't able to make his 'films' as cheaply.

But yeah, this makes even more sense - I cannot think of the last time I even watched a film off a DVD anymore.

I loved doing it (even if he just seemed to have the opposite of "a knack for making films"), and I'm sorry he can't do it anymore.

Thanks to LRR's interview with him, I found he was a cool guy...just absolutely naff at making movies.

I wish him well, and hope Allen! can console himself with following the (critically acclaimed) exploits of Boll's restaurant. :)

I bought Takashi Miike's remake of Hara-Kiri a couple days ago from a bargin bin. Very rare I do that.

I do hope his restaurant continues to go well. He seems really nice and friendly when people aren't slamming him over his movies, despite their quality(Or lack thereof).

When LRR interviewed him he spoke like a normal person. I wouldn't have minded sitting down with him for a chat after that.

They did, but the video seems to be down. You can search for Uwe Boll on the video page to at least find the link to it's page.

Eh...the whole "beat the shit out of his critics" boxing matches rather soured me on the man.
