In the News

The Forager makes a case for why we should care about Lost In Translation… Great post–downplays the “Hollywood stuff”, which is just backdrop anyway, it’s not important what these characters find themselves distanced from, it only matters that they do; a plea against “biographical readings” of the film; good discussion of Scarlett Johansson’s role and performance (is she the next Stanwyck? too soon to tell, but it’s been a long time since anyone even raised that question…Debra Winger? we know how that turned out, unfortunately…); another invocation of “termite-art”!

I walked out of the room when they awarded “Best Original Screenplay” to the film–the Academy’s traditional “pat on the head” to great movies that don’t have enough industry momentum behind them…

On the other hand, John Commonplacebook loved Monster, which I haven’t seen…

Alan David Doane presents: “5 Questions for Dave Sim”!

Flat Earth discusses the upcoming Krypto cartoon! He also directs our attention to a wonderful round-up of the DC super-animal family

Sean Collins’ review of Teratoid Heights has piqued my interest in the book–I may summon a copy to the store, in order to investigte the matter further. Which reminds me…

I’ve been reading Seth’s It’s a Good Life If You Don’t Weaken, and I’m pretty impressed… more on that soon!

More Dark Knight blogging too…

Good day friends!
