With my regular workload compounded by NYFF press screenings (which began last week), I'm quickly learning to operate on 4-5 hours of sleep. Not, I have to admit, an ideal situation. But hey, if I didn't sacrifice my mind and body in the name of cinema criticism, how else would I be able to get you all these brand-spankin' new reviews?
This Past Weekend:
Jackass Number Two (Slant magazine)
Jet Li's Fearless (Slant magazine)
Feast (Slant magazine)
This Coming Weekend:
School for Scoundrels (Slant magazine)
New York Film Festival:
Syndromes and a Century (Slant magazine)
The Proposition - DVD (Slant magazine)
Check back in a few days for more NYFF reviews, including ones for Todd Field's Little Children and Stephen Frears' The Queen.
And check below for my thoughts on Brian De Palma's underwhelming The Black Dahlia and Sophia Coppola's sumptuous Marie Antoinette.
