Notes from the Red Zone

Well, maybe a little evilThis week’s NOW features my interview with Mark Strong, who plays a villain-in-waiting in “Green Lantern”, and another conversation with Maria Bello, who plays a mother grappling with a horrible loss — and an even more terrible discovery — in “Beautiful Boy”.

I also review a couple of NXNE films, and take a look at Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s 1973 sci-fi curio “World on a Wire“, which the Lightbox is screening in a new 35mm presentation Friday and Sunday. But given that it’s three and a half hours long and was originally produced for television, you might want to wait for the Criterion edition and catch it at home.

Just a thought.
