Sally Potter's Yes, a truly bizarre romance written in iambic pentameter starring Joan Allen and Simon Abkarian, premieres at the end of this month after spending almost a year on the festival circuit. After the film's screening late last summer at the Telluride Film Festival, Scott Foundas filed a review for Variety that became something of a legend, characterized in part by the line, "Yes is the type of purely intellectual construct that, even when it works, inspires most audiences to say ‘No.'" Foundas talks to Potter in this week's edition of the LA Weekly, less about the film than about the impact of his review.
