Screening Gotham: Defiant Underwear Edition

All right, STV is back, battling fatigue and Nyquil brain pirouettes to bring you some of today's movie news of note from around New York:

--The Smoking Gun offers up a five-page script excerpt of the rape scene in Hounddog, featuring 1,000 curtailed gerunds ("wavin," "gyratin," "moanin" etc.), an early misuse of the word "lightening" and a description of Dakota Fanning's "underwear hit(ting) the ground hard, with defiance." Wow -- "defiant underwear" would have made great Sundance swag if only the producers had thought ahead.

--Critic David Edelstein declined an invitation to view the Ralph Nader documentary An Unreasonable Man and meet its subject, responding that "I couldn’t make it but to leave my seat vacant in the name of the Iraqi and American dead." Then he saw the film and liked it, backed away from the comments, but still. Ouch.

--In an uncanny pairing of writer and subject, New York's horniest blogger looks back at the highs and lows of retard cinema. WARNING: Rosie O'Donnell video ahead.

--Although nobody outside Los Angeles may ever see Factory Girl, that's not stopping some critics from reviewing it anyway: "I find myself wondering why I should go see this movie. Adding reasons to the 'no' column is that it’s another film about Andy Warhol. Haven’t we heard enough about this guy? Didn’t someone shoot him in I Shot Andy Warhol?" I... I... don't know what else to say.
