Hella busy week, with some magazine interviews, DVD liner notes work, and loads of long-lead screenings, including Lars von Trier’s characteristically divisive Antichrist and the fashion documentary The September Issue, about Anna Wintour (the loose inspiration for Meryl Streep’s character in The Devil Wears Prada) and the creation of Vogue’s annually bloated, big-deal September volume, the 2008 version of which featured capricious cover gal Sienna Miller. I need to lay down some thoughts regarding Lone Scherfig’s An Education, too, and the ascendant star of Carey Mulligan, who does deliver on the hype.
Yes, I still need to see Sundance sensation The Cove, about which I’ve heard great things; that should be next Thursday, after screenings earlier in the week for Orphan, Oz-ploitation documentary Not Quite Hollywood, Scott Hicks’ The Boys Are Back, Richard Loncraine’s My One and Only and more. Looks like I
dodged the bullet got pulled off of an assignment on G-Force, alas. So you’ll have to get your animated talking guinea pig fix elsewhere, it seems.
