The fifth episode of ReelerTV is on the air, featuring a discussion with Rocket Science writer/director Jeffrey Blitz and a chat about some of this week's new releases with New York Magazine film critic Logan Hill. We also unpack our black armbands in memory of the late Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni, check out the scintillating slate set for Film Forum's fall season and send you over to Picture New York's Web site to read more about the city's controversial new proposals designed to regulate filmmaking in New York. (You can read my other thoughts over at our new news and comment blog Screening Gotham.) It's more than any mortal can stand, which should probably be a warning to auterist survivors Eric Rohmer and Jean-Luc Godard to stop reading right about now.
A brief programming note: ReelerTV will be taking a little break for the next few weeks, likely returning in late August with all kinds of new hijinx and chaos from the New York cinema trenches. We pledge a full report upon our return about what we did over our summer vacation.
Thanks as always to ReelerTV's unflagging producers at Good Hard Working People and to our gracious, gentle hosts at the Pioneer Theater. And thanks to you for your continuing support and viewership. I'll see you back here soon. -- S.T. VanAirsdale
