Nose + Grindstone
Two more weeks left in the semester and it's grading time, big time. (Honestly, I like the life and work of the academic but will never learn to enjoy grading.) I've been watching films—back on the movie-a-day regimen and it feels good!—so I hope to return with some film thoughts next week. Before I go, let me leave you with a few links. Have a good week, everyone.
-- The William Shakespeare Blog-A-Thon at Peter Nellhaus's place.
-- Acquarello has been filing dispatches from the Carlos Saura retrospective in New York.
-- The Siren travels to Josef von Sternberg's Macao.
-- I hope you've been keeping up with Andy Horbal's adventures at "film criticism boot camp" in New York.
-- Jonathan Rosenbaum in the Chicago Reader on Paul Verhoeven's Black Book and Jafar Panahi's Offside.
-- A great, meaty essay by Tag Gallagher, "American Triptych: Vidor, Hawks, Ford," in the last issue of Senses of Cinema.
