Screening Gotham: All-Positive Friday!

Continuing the fledgling tradition of last week's inaugural All-Positive Friday, here's some of today's more pleasant movie news of note from around New York:

--Hey, look: Clips from Factory Girl! And only the ones where Sienna Miller is nude! Very positive -- except for that sex scene, which looks like Harvey cut it between innings at a beer-league softball game. But we'll take it. (Absolutely NSFW)

--Things are looking up at Cinematical, where Top 10 Top 10 List veteran Ryan Stewart has assumed editor-in-chief duties from James Rocchi. But don't take my word for it: "It's been a lot of fun," Rocchi writes, "but at the end of the day, I think that Cinematical -- and myself -- are best served by this move." So sudden! And he never even wrote me back!

--On the heels of Reeler contributor Lewis Beale's run down of unsung Oscar-worthies, Salon's film critics whip up their own suggestions for Academy consideration. Meet us on the outside looking in, gang, and wear something warm.

--Great news from Sundance: After making last year's short-film selections available on its Web site, the film festival has reached an agreement with Apple to broadcast the 2007 shorts on iTunes. These include no fewer than two dozen films by New York directors, many of whom you'll be able to read about on The Reeler starting Monday.

--Finally, this is beyond brilliant (and beyond irony, evidently): The 2007 Fly Fishing Film Tour, featuring the headliner Trout Bum Diaries, Volume 2. The line starts here, pal -- get behind me.
