I have enthusiastically offered to join Ric Burke at the fantastic film blog Film For the Soul in his highly ambitious quest to host guest reviews of films cinema blogosphere writers consider among the best of the best of the decade of the 2000s.
My review of Catch Me If You Can, written almost six months ago, will be featured at Ric's place (it sounds a little like Casablanca, doesn't it?), on Saturday, June 20, going up at 9:00 PM London time. For those who never read it, or did and would like to take another look--at a website where there is actually someone competent pulling the levers and pushing the buttons and adorning essays with beautiful production stills and the like--or just want to support Ric in this noblest of enterprises, please visit this weekend. And don't just stop there; Ric is counting through the years of this decade, and cinephiles of all kinds should see what all of the hubbub is about.
Meanwhile, right here in the coming days, more reviews of contemporary films still playing in dark palaces throughout the land, and, yes, after some catching up, back to some classics, including at least a couple of "grade B film noirs" recently celebrated at my local Roxie Theatre and whatever else pops into my crazy, oversized head.
