This past week as announced on the previous post Wonders in the Dark passed the four million level on page views after eight and a half years in existence. This is a great honor for Allan Fish and the many writers who have rocked these halls in every capacity. There are no plans to end this party anytime soon, so as some have noted we must keep on keepin’ on! Thank you to all for your support and insights for this incredible ride!
March weather. Twenty degrees one day and 60 another. This has been the propensity in the NYC metropolitan area anyway. The Tribeca Film Festival has announced their lineup for next month’s festival. Lucille and I are readying for our annual marathon, and I’ll have the full coverage here at the site.
This past week we saw two films in the theaters though several others at home, including some 2016 repeats. We saw:My Life as a Zucchini (Ma Vie de Courgette) **** 1/2 (Landmark Cinemas) Saturday night
Logan *** 1/2 (Secaucus multiplex) Saturday afternoon
Lucille, Sammy, Jeremy, Broadway Bob and I saw the lovely and moving French Oscar-nominated subtitled animated feature “My Life as a Zucchini” last night at the Landmark Theaters in Manhattan. We braved bone-chilling cold to take in yet another gem from last year that opened two weeks ago in US theaters. In the afternoon we saw the action epic “Logan” with Hugh Jackman. It was the very first time I modestly liked a film in that normally bombastic series, as I felt it had a more profound humanist element at play.
