burber: Who's Keyser Soze?
Ed Grubermann: No Cordwainer Bird?
Krieghund: burber: Who's Keyser Soze?He is the devil.
Soulcatcher: Ed Grubermann: No Cordwainer Bird?Harlan Ellison used that pseudonym occasionally.I doubt we will ever see Alan Smithee accepting a Best Director Oscar. Apparently 100% of his work is shiate.=]

thornhill: browneye: Why do the Coen Brothers avoid credit for editing their own films?While the Brothers claim they don't want their names appearing too many times in the credit because it would look awkward, I suspect union rules are at play. The film editors union probably has an agreement with the DGA that directors who are not members of the editors union cannot receive film credit for editing their films. And the editors union probably won't allow DGA directors to join their unions for fear that it will put editors out of work. Thus, DGA directors may edit their own films, but not receive formal recognition.

WhoIsWillo: My understanding is that is has to do with editing guild rules about co-editors, though they joke that it's because they get tired of seeing their names all over the credits.
