Wonderful Wilder

Saturday, June 2--------It seems inconcievable to me that the current generation of filmgoers (and possibly even most of the filmmakers) do not know who Billy Wilder was. Or is, for his style of filmmaking remains remarkably fresh and current. For myself, Wilder is one of the giants, who combined the pace of Hollywood filmmaking with the sophistication of his European roots. His movies remain decidedly adult and deal with human emotions that are still very much in style. For local audiences who ...

Spending The Holidays With Woody Allen

Saturday, December 23----When I was growing up Jewish in Brooklyn, New York in the 1960s, Christmas Day meant only two things…..Chinese food and going to a movie. In those halcyon days when Christmas was more of a religious event than an excuse to go shopping, almost all restaurants, stores and other commercial venues were closed on Christmas Day.....with the exception of Chinese restaurants and most movie theaters. So, it became a Jewish tradition (and the only option in town) to frequent ...
