Some of today's (very slight) movie news of note from around New York:
--David Rakoff is taking The Reeler's Woody Allen freakout about a dozen steps further with his blog at Nextbook, on which he is filing insights and impressions from each tandem programmed in Film Forum's ongoing Allen series. Good stuff, particularly his asides about the surfeit of "messy-haired slinky ectomorph boys who work" at the theater and the inclusion of pro-blogger motivational speeches. I needed the kick in the ass (though I'd much rather be down watching the retrospective).
--Face it: The primary reason Look Magazine retains a place in contemporary cultural consciousness is because Stanley Kubrick used to be one of it staff photographers. Now there's a book to remind us. (Via Movie City News)
--DIY crusader Sujewa Ekanayake has a consumer warning for you: Danny Leiner's post-9/11, New York-based, "brilliant comedy" The Great New Wonderful is neither brilliant nor a comedy. Discuss.
