Just taking a quick break from the book to point out that I was recently interviewed for Film in Focus’s very cool Behind the Blog feature. And to point out that between the FIF interview and Sujewa’s documentary, I’ve found myself thinking about blogging and community quite a bit lately.
One of the more interesting questions is where I was asked to name my “favorite blog entry.” It’s an odd question, one that I’d never really considered. And I think I could answer it differently every day depending on my mood. I do like the basic answer that I gave: my favorite entries are those where I was writing about a film that genuine inspired me (my review of the Jem Cohen film, Chain, is one example). But I think I could probably also name my rant against an LA Times op-ed complaining about Marxist film professors. Or about some of the many documentaries I’ve seen at Full Frame the last two years. I won’t make any claims about the quality of these entries, but it was sure fun writing them.
Update: I think the original link to the Behind the Blog feature is broken, so here is a new one.
