Re: “Sneakquels! Your Guide to NYC Movie Theater-Hopping

This is an awesome article thank you; I'd also like to add AMC bay plaza in the bronx, there are two sides so as long as your movie is on the same side there's no one to stop you, plus unless its the weekend there is usually no ticket checker on the opposite side either.

Re: “Alex Karpovsky: The Most Honest Mouth In Movies

As part of the Dunham spawn, Karpovsky is part of the Apatow spawn. As part of the Dunham/Apatow spawn, Karpovsky roots himself firmly in the narcissistic netherworld of Generation Y. If Generation Y is to be measured in entertainment value by Lena Dunham's leavings, then by all likelihood, it never should have existed. At least then, "Girls" would have never happened, and "Tiny Furniture" wouldn't have been spewed on the world in all it's nauseating splendor.

What anyone associated with Dunham can't realize is that- nobody cares. Nobody cares that they make noise. Nobody cares that characters like Karpovsky are in love with themselves. No one cares anything about them. If the Russian meteorite landed smack on top of the whole naval-gazing troupe of "Girls," or the self-loving cast of "Sleepwalk..", the biggest concern of the viewers would be whether there was wine or beer in their fridge.

What about Karpovsky's leavings in these movies makes you wonder or care about any of the characters? This entire genre is the equivalent of the Jehovah's Witness who keeps coming to your door regardless of how many times you send them away- because they're SO CONVINCED that you should love them as much as they love themselves.

Put these idiots away somewhere.

Re: “Technostalgia

I program a summer film series, and have run into this very problem with WB. "Can you use a DVD?" they ask. Problem is, DVDs routinely look *horrible* when projected on a giant movie screen. Blu-rays are a little better, but have nowhere near the luminosity of at 35mm print, or a well-done DCP.

Pauline was wrong about Matthew Modine. He's a terrific actor.

Re: “Cave of Forgotten Dreams: Herzog Was Here

Intriguing review. It definitely spiked my interest, and seeing a documentary in 3D sounds exciting!

Re: “The Fury: Fritz Lang in Hollywood

Some other attempts to pithily sum up the difference between Hitchcock and Lang:

Hitchcock uses the sea in most of his films, Lang never does (Lang actually talks about this in his interviews on Clash By Night, saying how difficult it was for him to film the ocean)

Lang's films are typified by enormous numbers of insert shots; when Hitchcock shoots objects, they're POV shots

Re: “The L's Second Annual Film Poll

Didn't anyone see Mother and Child with Naomi Watts and Annette
was my favorite film of the year.....and better than The Kids are Alright...which I think was condescending, and only interesting to a naive audience.

Re: “Vincere: Italy (Dis)embodied

As always, D'Agostino gives a rich rendering of the multi-layered work...his perspective is all the more compelling because of his deep knowledge and access to film, literature and Italian and Italian American cultures...a pleasure to read.

I am pleased to see so many mentions of Remember the Night. But isn't someone, anyone, gonna stick up for Bad Santa?

Re: “The Discerning Person's Guide to Underrated Christmas Movies

How about Elia Kazan's "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn"? I think it's rather overlooked and underrated, to the general public at least. It should be on the list of "dark" Christmas tales.

For real obsure stuff which you will never see: "Where are you, Santa Claus?" a short film(drama) from Poland, about a lonely and neglected pre-teen girl looking for the real meaning of Christmas. It might be my favorite Christmas flick, if I had to pick just one.

Also remember that parts 1 and 3 of Kieslowski's Decalogue are set around Christmas time...
