Thank You Rialto Pictures!

Jean-Paul Melville is one of my favorite screenwriters of all time. The only thing that could make me have more anticipation for the American première of his L'Armée des Ombres would be if Jean Gabin was in it. Sadly, he's not...But I'm still saving the date.

In Honor of My Sister's Birthday Today....

Even the Shiksas appreciate a good Seder!

The Bjork-Barney Enigma Machine

These kooky kids fascinate me. I am totally conflicted about seeing this film. Matthew Barney Mormon? I haven't seen any of his Cremaster films, but I hear there are a Mormon Characters and Symbols, etc in them. Maybe it's just because he grew up in Idaho. Or maybe it's another case of a hot dude abdicating his tribal duties!

PPS...isn't it funny how Napoleon Dynamite is set in Preston, ID...just about as Mormon a town as you can get, the star's Mormon, the Director and Writers are Mormon...but there are no OVERT references to Mormons in the movie? Like they wanted to totally avoid the topic. That's like setting a movie in Fallujah and acting like the locals are Eskimos.

Former Dodger Great Facing a Mound of Debt - Los Angeles Times

Former Dodger Great Facing a Mound of Debt

Oh how the mighty are fallen. Steve Garvey was the first Dodger whose name I could pronounce. He was a favorite of my childhood. He's gone from MLB Golden Boy to certified chump.
