good luck, zach. I hope everything goes good!

This is a slightly random post, so my apologies in advance. I study at Georgia Tech, and when you were in Atlanta, I very narrowly missed the opportunity of being there for your interview. My loss.

I am really looking forward to the release of Garden State. Its a good thing that its releasing in Atlanta after two weeks. I have my final exams next week and I've completely lost motivation!!! I think I am procrastinating by posting this. :-P

Anyway, good luck with your fabulous career!

Have a marvelous day!

I live in a small town outside of Vancouver BC, and I can't wait till it comes out! I'll have to drive to the city, but it'll be worth it! Good Luck Zach!

"what up duuuude!?"

hi zach, any more news on the dvd? you should really go 'all out' on it. although i'd love to see this film in the cinema first, i get the feeling that the dvd will be available first to me. i don't think i can stand the wait! i'm in the uk by the way. you've got plenty of fans over here so don't worry about how your film will do over here. we'll love it i'm sure.

honestly, i've never been so excited about a film. thanks for making it. also, this blog is hellish! keep the posts coming.

take care of yourself,

Hi, I'm glad you're sharing the pics with us, old fellas (a.k.a. FOGS :-)
It all seems to have been great, and looking at the pictures almost feels like being there (ok it doesn't, just trying to be nice. I was dying to be there, though).
Keep on with the good work, Zach! Have a wonderful week ;-)
PS: How's your bearded cousin doing?

Posted by: Katia Kreutz | Jul 21, 2004 9:19:00 AM

Yes!! I second that... We need Garden state to come to Hartford, CT

Hello Zack!!

I just wanted to say that I love your work, and I think you are one of the best people in the enterntainment these days. Not only a good actor but also an awsome writer & director. I was going crazy for last 3-4 months( couldn`t wait for this movie to come out) since i saw the first trailer. I`m going to see it tomorrow, and I know it will be amazing. Congratulations! What an amazing work. I wish you more and more success on your future project and Thank you for creating a movie that isn't one of those LETS MAKE MONEY movies, but rather an artistic piece of work.

the big ZB,
Congratulations on the film and congratulations to you, natalie, and the cast on the performance. I can only imagine the hard work and dedication put into this film and at the same time how much fun it was. You have inspired me, an aspiring actor, and i'm sure many others. Thanks! Take her easy, eh!

Posted by: moose | Jul 29, 2004 1:57:00 AM

ZACH bro,
It's me, GOD! Just droppin a line to say hey, good job out there; way to play the game! You reassure me on why i created humans, and Natalie too!!! A lot of reassurance from Natalie. I knew, at age 5, when i watched you slide down the slides, and swing on the swings, and climb on the....climbs, that you would some day impress me. You gave light to darkend areas of my life; in fact, suicide was in thought. In fact, mass genocide was in thought! Oh, HAHAHAHA, crazy me. Well i guess that's enough rambling on, got to go insu..... What?.....The Skating Rink?....What are you going to do?.... Alright, here's twenty dollars Jesus but i want you in by 12:00...I said twelve!!! (sigh) Jesus Christ......Nothing, i was swearing! Kids, my my. Well thank you very much Zach, or should i say, Jessica?????
-capital G capital O
capital D (GOD)
p.s. Oh by the way, how are the wife and kids? Is Linda still working at that restaraunt? I know that last time i spoke with her she HATED it. I mean HATED it. So i struck her boss with lightning, HAHAHA just joking i killed him more painfully and in a secluded area!

Went to see it at Union Square on the 28th. Sold out 4 pm and 7:15 pm shows so we settled for the packed 5pm show.

So refreshing! Every single person has been to a party like that and had random adventures with their weird friends. Whatta film my friend!

I heart Zach

Posted by: Melissa | Jul 29, 2004 7:27:50 AM

I've been waiting for this movie to come out ever since that week last spring when you were filming in the Quarry just 4 or 5 houses down from me. Instead of heading to Bagel for 5th lunch me and my friends drove up to Harding to try and catch a glimpse...good times. Congrats on everything, you're awesome.

Posted by: | Jul 29, 2004 9:54:35 PM

I saw your movie last week and I totally enjoyed it. It was incredibly real and refreshing. I just graduated from high school and in my last semester studied directing. You're movie completley inspired me! I really liked your angles and effects. Congrats on an awesome script and fantastic movie! PROPS!

Posted by: Sara | Aug 5, 2004 6:11:52 PM

DAMN IT YOU MADE MY MOVIE BEFORE I DID!!!! And from what I hear you did a damn good job at it. I have not seen the film for my self yet but I have watched the teaser trailer about a million times (2-10 times a day depending on how much inspiration I can handle in the given moment). As an aspiring artist and filmmaker I must commend you on your direction technique and taste in music, I actually just saw the shins play in San Diego a few weeks ago and it was fantastic. If you see this message, I would like to say that I have a huge respect for not only your talent but also for your efforts to try to stay in contact with people who are in the same boat as I am. If not then I would just like to let everyone know that it looks as though Hollywood has a new director with some genuine artistic integrity. And congratulations !

If at all possible please contact me at [email protected] for some extra hope that there are still some brilliantly creative people out there.

zach, you are such an inspiration. it made me so happy to see how perfectly you captured the essence of the "we're seven years out of college but still drink and smoke pot in our parents' basement back home in suburbia" scene. but what i loved most was the dichotomy that you set up between large's family and that of sam. though large's family would seem perfect when taken at face value -- no messy affairs or divorces, a successful father with a renowned medical practice, a prep school son turned actor -- the audience finds only bitterness and tragedy in this household. though large and his father express a desire to work on their relationship, it must still be noted that love is something that must be negotiated within this family. however, the viewers do stumble upon a wealth of unconditional love among sam's motley collection of a family -- a single mother whose husband who is out-of-sight/out-of-mind, the Sally Struthers mail order child, and the epileptic daughter with a lying problem. sam's family is a far cry from the perfect American household, but a deeply rooted love holds it together. zach, i admire your talent and creativity, and i can't wait to see what you create in the future.

I would have paid SO MUCH to be there, it's not even funny.

Posted by: Anna | Aug 31, 2004 2:10:33 PM

Dear Mr. Braff,
I just wanted to say thank you for encapsulating such amazing music, acting, writing and of course directing ;) into such a beautiful piece of work. I greatly admire your talent in every facet of work you perform. Drop me a line if you're not too busy.

Once again thanks,

Posted by: Anabel | Sep 1, 2004 12:39:33 PM

Hi Zach, I hope to one day be a director just like you! Well, not just like you, because then I'd be copying your personal style instead of forming my own... And then you might sue me for all I'm worth... And I'd end up as a hobo on the street who is unable to buy movie tickets and instead is reduced to doing naked cartwheels for money... Hmm... Well I want to be a GOOD director, let's just put it that way. Not to imply that you're not a GREAT director... And not to say that I'd surpass you in terms of this "goodness"... I mean "greatness"... I mean... Uh... YOU ROCK!
