    Dog's Dialogue


    La Jetee + telenovela.

  • Vertigo



    Don't have much to add to what I wrote for Slant in 2011, except that Scottie manages to seal his doom by being a staunch empiricist in the first half ("There's an answer for everything!") and a deranged romantic in the second. Balance is important, one step at a time.

    Also Konstantin Shayne really delivers in his Pop Leibel monologue in the bookstore, considering his is a Mr Exposition role. People who believe Hitchcock was "indifferent to acting" might want to think again.

    Listen Up Philip


    Guys like Philip Lewis Friedman do saunter through Brooklyn without getting punched in the face, but Art needs to be better than Life.

  • Creed



    Best male weepie in a dog's age.
