"My favorite movie about the theater is ALL ABOUT EVE, but then again that movie is my favorite movie about everything about movies and love and lust and life itself." - Jay

"TOPSY-TURVY perfectly captures the feeling of imminent failure that you get when you're in rehearsals." - Peggy

Personalize Your Guest Room DVD Collection

Hi kids. It's Nathaniel typing at you from a surprisingly cool Chicago, a welcome break from the stifling NYC heat. I'm visiting Nick for a few days and arrived to find the guest room (which doubles as the DVD Containment Room) super-personalized for my stay. Nick has arranged his movies in chronological order which instantaneously revealed to me why I've always been disappointment by my own DVD shelves which are alphabetical. The alphabet is about as exciting as the Dewey Decimal system. Chronology is king. 

Nick already tweeted one photo of his shelves for giggles but I thought I'd share my two favorite library notes with you. Our favorite shared movie genre, as previously noted here on the blog, is Women Who Lie To Themselves™. That note was strategically placed right under a certain Oscar-nominated 1996 picture which is a very literal interpretation of the genre. Guess which movie!

This genre is immortal and always revisited by the best filmmakers and actresses so I especially love the apotheotic "Women Who Lie to Themselves SILENTLY at the OPERA™", don't you?

Two more shelves after the jump...

PSA: Great Films on the Big (or Slightly Bigger) Screen

If there's an awesome repertory movie house near you make sure to support it this weekend or next during the peak craziness over this year's Oscar nominees. See something really special you haven't seen before to remind you that the here and now ain't everything.

NYC -The gob-smackingly brilliant Black Narcissus (pictured left, which we wrote about during Season 1 of 'Hit Me...') is playing at Film Forum and will make nearly every one of next week's Oscar nominees look like timid wallflowers when it comes to psychosexualspiritual provocations, expressive production design and the use of color and light. Take that, uh...  Life of Pi (?) 

LA & CHICAGO, anyone?
