How many of you knew that Tim Burton worked as an extra on 1992s HOFFA? Well, as in worked I mean, put on some pasty make-up and laid down in a coffin. During the Teamsters funeral scene, it seems that Danny DeVito and Jack Nicholson snuck up on Burton and surprised him. It's also like a mini-BATMAN reunion. The Penguin meets the Joker. I thought it was a cool find for those of you who hadn't seen it.

HOFFA seems to be an unforgettable film amongst viewers. I think it's a multiple watcher. Nicholson sort of fascinates me in whatever role he decides to take on. He's an interesting character on his own, then to add another layer to that makes for an entertaining performance.

Hoffa's a cool movie, the performances, set pieces, atmosphere, and cinematography are awesome. Unfortunately, I don't have one damn clue what the fuck they're talking about half the time. There are too many political details that the characters rattle off at breakneck speeds, leaving me unable to catch up. All I really got from the movie was the Hoffa was an asshole, passionate, and willing to break the law to do what he thought was right, and also a little corrupt. But I still don't

All I really got from the movie was the Hoffa was an asshole, passionate, and willing to break the law to do what he thought was right, and also a little corrupt. But I still don't understand who or what the Teamsters were/are, or what their purpose was, or what the cause of each problem in the movie was. Too many political details for me to keep up with or even grasp.
