A personal diary keeping people abreast of what I am working on writing-wise.

Thursday, October 22, 2009



* Amelia, Mira Nair's biopic of Amelia Earhart is an emotionless snoozer. Starring Hilary Swank.

* Astro Boy, a cool looking movie that is stuck somewhere between the quality of the original material and a misguided desire to satisfy the kiddie market.

* Coco Before Chanel, starring Audrey Tautou as the fashion designer in her formative years.


* Actors & Sin, a slick entertainment-themed double-bill from Ben Hecht.

* Dusan Makavejev: Free Radical - Eclipse Series 18, a boxed set of experimental and highly entertaining films from 1960s Yugoslavia. (Also at Criterion Confessions)

* Monsoon Wedding - Criterion Collection. Mira Nair may have crash landed this week with Amelia, but this is a reminder of how good she can be. Comes with seven bonus short films. (Also at Criterion Confessions)

* My Fair Lady, the Audrey Hepburn musical is reissued and downgraded. Keep your old DVDs, they are better.

* Whatever Works, the Woody Allen/Larry David movie comes to DVD, and I revisit my old review from its theatrical run.

Current Soundtrack: Kings of Convenience, "Boat Behind;" New Tales To Tell: A Tribute To Love And Rockets, on sale at Amazon right now for a $3.99 download
