To borrow a gimmick

If I may be so bold as to appropriate a signature feature of my dear comrade Sconz, I’m going to share some worthwhile links with y’all on this overcast Tuesday morning. Is my lack of originality apparent or what?

An insightful (and concise) review by David Sterritt of Chris Marker’s masterpiece Le Fond de l’air est rouge (English: A Grin Without a Cat).

Vintage Rosenbaum: J.R. on the top ten films of 1987 (!!!spoiler alert!!!: Godard’s King Lear isn’t one of the elite ten)

More Rosenbaum: another write-up on a director/critic whose work I’m extremely anxious to check out, Luc Moullet.

By now, you’ve no doubt seen and been intrigued by the commercials for the new 3D Final Destination thing; but what does this unintentionally hilarious film franchise owe to Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal?

Though it hasn’t yet announced its schedule for the Fall semester, on 8/29 WUD Film is treating students to a very special event: a screening of the 2009 Paul Rudd/Jason Segal vehicle I Love You, Man, played straight off the recently released DVD. Can you feel the excitement?

Ah, hell; I’m no good at this “barrage of links” business. David Hudson, on the other hand, is.

Actual writing forthcoming.
