Good writing ahead...
link Cheyenne answers the questions with such wit and thought, I can't even pick a favourite part. The idea for him and Jane Krakowski in a Doris Day/Rock Hudson like musical? His dream role of playing the lead in Carousel? His adoration of Tina Fey! All great things.
And, while you're at it go read him making a case for Marion Cotillard's work in Rust and Bone as a worthy awards' contender. link I'm still to review that one, but I agree with his words.
There are some key ways to assure linkage from me, Nick (Cinema Romantico) knows most of them. For example, write some kind words on Atonement and I'm there. link The link takes you a reworking of his original review of Wright's film, and it's a good read.
Paolo (Okinawa Assault Incident, Paraphrased Kulchar, elsewhere) and I have this email correspondence going on and he's trying to
link Get your thoughts in by the 12th.
Amir (Amiresque) does not care for Kylie's song in Holy Motors (alas) and he does love the film either, but he offers some thoughts on why he didn't but still found much to appreciate. link Boo, Holy Motors is another one I've been meaning to review...
Yojimbo (Let's Not Talk About Movies) gives a look at the entire of James Cameron's oeuvre. link My love for Titanic is boundless and a not as boundless fan of Avatar, too, neither of which Yojimbo is especially fond of.
link He's not quite as exuberant in his love for it as I would (because I love this movie) his dissection of what it gets right and not quite right is a fine read.
And, to end on a triple note. Last night I published my thoughts on a nagging film related issue, and I'm but one in a group of bloggers who are still charmed by the cinema but not by how it's being received. Andreas (Pussy Goes Grr) who I cited in my article wrote eloquently on strange prejudices against "art house" cinema link, Jessica (The Velvet Café) wants to know where the film fans have gone, and when they were replaced with persons looking to nitpick link and Ryan (The Matinee) is encouraging readers to express their love for film if they really are film lovers link. All three touch on valuable issues worthy of discussion.
So, you've got lots of reading to do. Go crazy.
