Still doing some heavy-duty non-blog writing, but here are the most recent links to cross my radar:
- First, Film Festival World, a resource designed to help filmmakers in “launching films on the festival circuit” has an Essential Film Blog Reader that features a number of outstanding film blogs, including a number of my daily (or semi-daily) reads. And I’d mention it even if my blog wasn’t listed among their “essential blogs.”
- Second, just a quick mention of James Gandolfini’s upcoming HBO documentary about Iraq war veterans, Alive Day Memories, previewed in this New York Times article. The documentary focuses on their experiences as veterans and their memories of their “alive day,” the day they narrowly escaped dying. The documentary airs for the first time on Sunday, September 9 at 10:30 PM, so I’ll try to watch and do a brief write-up if time permits.
