Lazy New Years Day Film Links

I’m slowly starting to settle back into a routine after last week’s MLA conference, and one of my first goals is to turn my conference paper into an article, in which I’ve been thinking about cinematic representations of the military, or more narrowly the war in Iraq, after September 11. With that in mind, I just wanted to bookmark a couple of articles that look interesting. First a NYT article on the upcoming slate of September 11 films, many of which should hit theaters this year.

Second, Benjamin Halligan’s “On the Interval Between Reality and Unreality,” a response to Zizek’s original 9/11 essay published in Senses of Cinema.

Finally, and this isn’t really related to my paper, but it’s still pretty darn cool: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Margaret Herrick Library has launched a searchable online catalog highlighting more than 30,000 motion picture scripts available for research at six Southern California collections (via Alternative Film Guide).

Here’s wishing everyone a Happy New Year.
