March comes in like a lion!

From the director of Eternal Sunshine, who is also auteur of The Science of Sleep, we get an auteur outing, Be Kind, Rewind.

Reviewer sentiment is v mixed on Charlie Bartlett but it looks kind of fun.

This brings us to my personal choice, Persepolis, which is loved by pretty much all critics It's only at Regency, which is kind of a neutral factor for me.

Actually, I guess I have two personal choices, seeing as how The Diving Bell and the Butterfly has finally showed up right here in River City.

There Will Be Blood has spawned a meme, or at least

a catchphrase.

Seems as tho "I will drink your milkshake" has caught the popular imagination in a big way!

Won't try for a full post mortem on I'm Not There

except to say that since so many screenplays have been radically slicing and splicing timelines and point of view, how could they not try persona?

I thought the real show stealer was "Woody." Here's a youtube interview with the actor He's not as adobable cuz he's a full blown teen instead of being poised (gracefully!) on the cusp between childhood and adolescence as in the movie, but he's still got the charisma thing going on.
