Red, Black and Blu

Is this a killer app?Just back from my FIPRESCI deliberations in London … and no, I’m afraid I can’t tell you which movie we picked, you’ll have to wait for Thursday night’s gala presentation at the Odeon Leicester Square. (Ooh! Aah!)

What am I at liberty to disclose? Well, lunch was delicious.

But to demonstrate that my time at the film festival hasn’t all been cakes and subtitles, here’s my latest Sympatico/MSN DVD column, written between screenings and focusing on the week’s 800-pound gorilla, “Spider-Man 3” — a title which should conquer both the standard and high-definition markets this week.

Oh, and speaking of that high-def format war, you’ll probably want to know about this. It certainly got my attention.
