I have to confess, I watched "The People Speak" last night, from 8-9, but then I turned to A&E's "The Jackson's: A Family Dynasty" Reality Show premiere ;) What I did see of "The People Speak" makes me want to see it in its entirety, yet still I went to bed without checking to see if they were going to do an encore performance last night on The History Channel, which they did at midnight, so I missed rec...

Viennale t o pay tribute to Bob Dylan

And then, in Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (1973), the taciturn cowboy flaunting his mystery in a moribund Wild West. But Dylan’s relationship with the cinema goes far beyond these two iconic images. As I’m Not There, Todd Haynes...
