Hey Laz, Reds in 35mm is pretty great. Storaro is a master of light & shadow. I probably caught one of the re-release prints that you were talking about. I haven't seen a crowd of folks that enraptured by a film at this particular theater in ages.

I haven't seen Multiplicity since it came out, so you're trusting the opinion of a 9 year old who didn't get half of the jokes on this one here, but I loved that movie.

It tends to play surprisingly well with audiences, and not that it feels like a much shorter film or anything, but I think it's very well-paced.

It's staggeringly constructed. There are enough small moments & callbacks (Jack's never-ending stream of cabs, any encounter with Gene, anytime someone mentions that they're a "writer") made through inference and understanding of adult emotions that even at 3 hours is a lean piece of filmmaking.

The first half, if only for how it tracks Louise's introduction to Greenwich Village culture and she & Jack getting wrapped up in the throes of revolution, is my favorite. Not that I mean to diminish from the second half.

On another note, the Alamo's hosting the first non-West Coast Noir City fest this weekend. Here's what's playing. Any insights?

RIP Alain Resnais. Huge loss. But what a life.

Yep. Arguably cinema's greatest living/working artist at our current moment. Certainly one of the most important. A sad loss, but he had a long career, long life, hopefully a satisfying one for him. Sure seems like it may have been. He went out making films just as good as he started out too, which is insanely uncommon.

If Godard outlives Rivette and Varda as well I'm going to be pissed.

Resnais is likely my second favorite Nouvelle Vague director after the former.

And as Lance said, the guy was cranking out several essential films in his last decade of work.

I'm glad we still have one last one from him to see. Though You Aint Seen Nothing Yet would have been a fitting swansong

He was writing another before he died, too. Him and Ruiz, raging against the dying of the light.

I only got into his filmography a couple of months ago. It didn't take long for him to become my favorite French New Wave director. RIP

Watching The Wrestler. It's really good (must not be directed by the Coen brothers..!). I obviously had Mickey Rourke and Mickey Rooney confused. I've seen Rooney cop a lot of shit, and thought it was him in this, but Rourke is great.

Marisa Tomei should be in everything, ever.

if you want Tomei, I recommend Before the Devil Knows You're Dead
A good movie for P S Hoffman and Sidney Lumet, too.

... Are you joking? Mickey Rooney is like 90 years old!
