This is pretty spectacular: The long-gestating, all-things-film resource Moving Image Source launched today, featuring an inaugural set of articles by critics including Jonathan Rosenbaum, Dennis Lim, Melissa Anderson, Ed Halter and others. The site also has a calendar of international repertory series, screenings and other events, as well a research guide for the
workplace procrastinator restless film wonk in all of you.
As you'll probably deduce from its name, the site is an offshoot of the Museum of the Moving Image; as such, all the museum's archived Pinewood Dialogues are here, as are direct links to its online collection catalog (Jaws 2 had a comic book! Who knew?) and archives of presidential election commercials since 1952. It appears that the only missing is a blog or a blogroll, but those things are just trouble anyway. Big, big congrats and thanks to MoMI for putting this together -- and happy exploring! -- STV
