For the Impassioned

Waltz with DemocracyThe latest issue of NOW is on the stands, featuring my look at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival, which starts next Tuesday. There’s some powerful stuff in there, as there usually is, along with some excellent films that have been kicking around the circuit for a while. Do check them out.

Oh, and if you’re a fan of Christopher Nolan’s “Memento” and you’re in a major North American city, you might want to catch a special 10th anniversary screening of the film tonight, which includes a video interview with Nolan by noted cinema enthusiast Guillermo del Toro. Seriously, his “Scott Pilgrim” Q&A with Edgar Wright at the New Beverly was a thing of beauty — that’s got to be online somewhere, surely.

  1. I guess Boston doesn’t count as a major North American city. Harumph…

    Oh well, I got my screener copy of the new Blu-ray yesterday. I’ll have to take a look to see whether that del Toro interview is on there.

  2. @ Dom — yup, just the way it worked out. But next week it’s all me.

    @ Josh — I think the interview is happening live, so it almost certainly isn’t on the disc. But if it is, let me know, and I’ll order it for myself …

  3. Is it just me, or does it seem like del Toro is stretching himself awfully thin these days? He’s writing books, he’s producing movies left and right (according to IMDb, he has 12 currently in development right now), he’s a consultant to Dreamworks Animation, he wrote the two Hobbit prequels, and he’s popping up all over the place hosting these Q&As and so forth.

    He’s in serious danger of overexposure. I’d prefer that he just settle in and focus on doing one or two things really well, rather than try to do everything all at once.
