Screening Gotham: All-Positive... Monday?

(Illustration: Time Magazine)

A few days late, some of the more uplifting news and notes from around New York:

--I promise this will be the last Harvey Weinstein-in-existential-crisis-mode item for a while, but The King was full of good news over the weekend in the Los Angeles Times. "As I told Patrick (Goldstein)," he wrote in a letter to the editor, "it was six months ago that my brother Bob told me, 'It's time for you to get back to making and acquiring movies -- to the kind of movies you were once known for.' Since then, I've been doing just that -- and it's just like the good old days.' " Anne Thompson's got his back -- wearily, but she's there.

--And hey! Check it out! At least one NYC audience favored Grindhouse. Well, mostly. But no worries; Weinstein Co. films have never tracked well with "lingerie buyers."

--Silver lining: Richard Corliss asserts his enduring critical relevance. Cloud: By writing about an issue more than a month old.

--Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman? I Doubt it.

--In the new issue of Filmmaker, Off the Black filmmaker James Ponsoldt has a fine burst of praise for Killer of Sheep, followed by an even finer interview with director Charles Burnett. An absolute must-read.

--Finally, Looker ran into Julianne Moore last week on the C train (!), which raises the question: Who's the most famous subway passenger you've ever shared a ride with?
