The News: All-Positive Friday!

By S.T. VanAirsdale

As per tradition, some of today's movie news of note from around New York:

--For its Fall Preview issue this week, New York Magazine go-getter Logan Hill spoke with Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin about their work on No Country For Old Men; apparently these guys have more stories than time, because the outtakes published today online would be the best interview most outlets would get for their main scoop. "So the dog’s name is Scooby, and I was like, 'Here Scooby!' It was just the gayest thing," Brolin tells Hill about the psycho pooch that came within seconds of chewing off his package. Mild spoilers here, I suppose, but, hey, whatever works to hold you over.

--Earlier this month on The Reeler, Jana Prikryl shared some dirt about the Silent City sidebar of Film Forum's NYC Noir series, including a bit of background about the Library of Congress' showcase of films dating back to 1894. IndieWIRE's Charlie Olsky checked out the actual program on Monday, which apparently involved Bruce Goldstein as ringleader and lively piano accompaniment. Take that, IFC Center!

--Via Pullquote, I've been directed to the Angelika Film Center's new blog, a thoroughly odd enterprise with raw video of director appearances, introductions to random Angelika filmgoers and, in its strangest coup, a long, loud, unabridged interview with Great World of Sound director Craig Zobel. I recommend it on that basis alone, even if it takes about 30 minutes to load. I've seen worse marketing tie-ins.

--Finally, congrats to Matt Zoller Seitz and his crew at The House Next Door, celebrating their 1,000th post today. Which, in blog years, is like hitting your sweet 16. I don't even want to tell them what happens around Post #2,000, but let it suffice to say it requires medication and a lot of open space. Cheers!
