Small Wonders

Hey, remember when people used to seek out independent cinema?The new Sympatico/MSN DVD column is up, and because it was just too unpleasant to imagine giving any more virtual ink to “Hannibal Rising” or “Blood and Chocolate”, I rolled back up the schedule a bit and went with “Old Joy”.

I’m told the Sympatico/MSN site gets four million unique viewers. And if even a tiny fraction of them decide to take a chance on Kelly Reichardt’s marvelous little picture — available for rental or sale at a video store near you! — I’ll be very, very happy.

Not as happy as I would be to have this, but still.
