    Which name is that?

    I'm glad no one bothers with your "print publications." People know when they're reading something they've read before. Heck, you still copy from me!

    It's amazing to me...

    No problem, Rebecca Bell. How is Leeds? It was good to see you at MUBI. I hope you enjoyed our conversations. How many other fake accounts do you have there and at other sites?

    I agree with a lot of what you've said (particularly with your comments on its visual aspect), but it seemed like the film ultimately cornered itself because it didn't develop a strong enough...

    Technically you're right because it does exist on DVD: I think there are at least 3 different versions available (I have the cheap Panorama disc), but there's little doubt that the Criterion release...

    Re: Caché by Haneke

    A few months ago I probably would’ve argued with the latter part of your statement, but after what recently transpired in Paris, it became obvious that things aren’t what they used to be. The riots...

    Fair and balanced: Jim Hoberman on Brokeback

    Brokeback Mountain, which opens (finally) next week, is less a movie than a chunk of American landscape, or perhaps, as director Ang Lee suggests, a pioneering settlement on Hollywood's "one last...

    Re: My review

    Initially, yes, but that was not the case after the scene shifted to Guyana. There were sequences – involving Yhap’s chickens, the locals the filmmaker tried to impress, etc. – that were merely...

    I think Franco is a pretty good actor -- I liked him in the TV series "Freaks and Geeks" and in one film with De Niro (can't remember the title) -- but he's mostly been relegated to B-grade stuff.

    I liked Ruiz's Ce Jour-là quite a bit (it made my "Best Undistributed Films" list in 2004). I'm glad that it hasn't been forgotten, but I highly doubt that it'll be distributed, though. Among other...

    No, I haven't seen this one. Actually, I wasn't even aware of it until you brought it up. Is it worth tracking down?

    None of the mainstream releases from 2006 have attracted my interest so far. ...

    It wasn't meant to be a refutation; there isn't much there to "refute."
