Seeing Things Clearly

I remember ze times, when we did ze thingsOlivier Assayas’ “Summer Hours” is one of the best films you’ll see this year, and it’s barely getting a theatrical run. So when it opens tomorrow, please make time to catch it on a big screen.

After missing both the movie and the man at Cannes, I caught up with Assayas at TIFF to discuss his film — and distilled that half-hour conversation into an online Q&A in today’s NOW. And in the paper proper, you’ll find a couple of very different reponses to a casual observation in my review of the “Taking of Pelham 1 2 3” remake.

Such a loaded word, “terrorism”. But then, I guess that’s the point.
