A New Toy
The beloved bearded film academic, David Bordwell, has revamped his website (http://www.davidbordwell.net/) and added a blog (http://www.davidbordwell.net/blog/index.php) - which he's updating regularly from the Vancouver Film Festival as we speak. Let's say it will soon be invaluable - and it's already a lot of fun. As an extra sweetener, Kristin Thompson blogs there as well - and she has an epic post about the current status of Peter Jackson and The Hobbit.
As if I needed any more reason to see it, Bordwell says Still Life is now his favorite Jia Zhangke film.
Slot it alongside Dave Kehr's blog as a must read.
