Screening Gotham: A Good New York Year at Cannes

(L-R) Norah Jones and Wong Kar-wai on the NYC set of My Blueberry Nights

Some of today's movie news of note from around New York:

--New York will be nicely represented at Cannes this year, with both locally shot films (Wong Kar-wai's My Blueberry Nights, James Gray's We Own the Night, Abel Ferrara's Go Go Tales, Ramin Bahrani's Chop Shop) and local filmmakers' work shot abroad (The Coens' No Country For Old Men, Julian Schnabel's The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Harmony Korine's Mister Lonely) sharing the spotlight among the selections announced today. Also noteworthy: Non-competition premieres including Sicko, Ocean's 13 and the Daniel Pearl biopic A Mighty Heart.

--Kitty Carlisle Hart, RIP.

--Cindy Adams sat behind Ryan Gosling at the Cinema Society's recent screening of Fracture, and today, the play-by-play: "Watching intently, chewing gum, he hunched forward on the edge of his seat at about the same time Sean Penn, Epatha Merkerson, Ian Schrager and others of us hunched forward on the edge of our seats." Only in New York, etc. etc.

--Attention film students! Do you have what it takes to make the next trailer for the Film Society of Lincoln Center? "The winning trailer will be professionally finished by HBO Films producers and will appear, with the winner’s named credited, before every film screened at Lincoln Center for two years," notes Wednesday's announcement; the deadline is May 31. Just do us a favor and make the music good; the stuff they have now is stuck in my head like an ice pick.
