COMING IN SEPTEMBER: It's Back to School Month so we'll be visiting some edumucational movies -- any suggestions? We'll be hitting new movies like The Family (La Pfeiffer), Don Jon (Scarjo & JGL), The Face of Love (The Bening!), and Prisoners (Viola, Hugh, and Jake? Yes please times three). Nathaniel and Amir will be reporting live from TIFF next week and Nathaniel, Jose, JA and Glenn will be reporting live from NYFF later in the month.
Finally, we had great fun in August "introducing" the characters from 1952's Supporting Actress lineup, revisiting the Oscar ceremony and then reviving Stinky Lulu's Smackdown. So next month 'The Year of the Month' (that has an odd ring to it, eh?) is 1980 so if you want to maximize your reading pleasure you'll rent Supporting Actress nominated films like Raging Bull, Private Benjamin, Melvin & Howard, Inside Moves, and Resurrection and maybe catch a few of the other seminal films from that year ... you know, for context.
