Cannes and Sad Cemeteries and Speed Racers, Oh My!
2. Devan Scott and Will Ross have launched a new film blog, Sad Hill Cemetery. Devan and I got to know each other a bit while taking a film history class this past semester, and he’s easily one of the best film conversationalists I’ve had the privilege to bandy words with. I haven’t met Will, but I’m sure he’s a swell guy too. Looking forward to seeing what you guys have to say!
3. Just for kicks, and to get the revival going so that my future kids and their friends will regard it as a classic: Dennis Cozzalio’s year-old essay on the Wachowski’s Speed Racer. Even if you hated the film, it’s a brilliant read.
