I just turned in my "Dark Knight" review and I'm still breathing hard (in a nutshell: Ledger's amazing, Bale's good, Gyllenhaal thankfully ain't no Katie Holmes, and the film's ambitions get the better of it but not ruinously -- read the rest on Thursday). So for now, some filler links!
You think you've seen "The Godfather"? You haven't seen "The Godfather". But you will this September.
Was that Senator Patrick Leahy I saw in "The Dark Knight"? Why, yes, it was.
Hayao Miyazaki fanatics (of which I am one), take note: the master's new film just opened in Japan. No one's quite sure what it's about. I think you'll have to take a bunch of five-year-old kids and ask them.
Is Heath Ledger the new James Dean? Shame on you for asking, but maybe. Or maybe not.
And Glenn Kenny weighs in on A) why you should remember Evelyn Keyes (in photo above), and B) why "Mamma Mia!" made his flesh crawl. While I sympathize with his pain, I don't empathize; despite being an unholy mess, a gravity-sucking quasar of camp, and an unparalleled exercise in white Bollywood, the upcoming film actually gave me great, demented pleasure.
