I've just come off of a week that included 10 movies and 2 interviews, plus two more this weekend and two more next week. I would have seen more movies still if not for my Thursday class. What's the sitch? The Mill Valley Film Festival and the fall movie season. Almost every movie is some kind of event, and each deserves consideration for the "year's best." It's not like summer when you can blow off something like "Stealth" and get away with it...

In new movies, we have the superb double-bill of Capote and Good Night, and Good Luck, both movies set in the 1950s about real people -- both writers -- who tried to do something different. Curtis Hanson's chick flick In Her Shoes isn't too bad, but Julian Fellowes' directorial debut Separate Lies is pretty forgettable. Wallace & Gromit fans will rejoice when they see The Curse of the Were-Rabbit beautifully make the transition to the big screen.

As for new DVDs, I checked out: Devo - Live: 1980, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, The Story of Marie & Julien, Voyages and The Warriors: Ultimate Director's Cut.

I also have a new interview with David Strathairn, the star of Good Night, and Good Luck in the Examiner. So, there it is.
