Screening Gotham: All-Positive Friday!

Back by popu... well, my demand, some of today's uplifitng movie news of note from around New York:

--Over at Cannes, goddamned Patrick Goldstein of all people beat the world to the first substantial We Own the Night story. Today in the LA Times, Goldstein has full-hearted praise for James Gray's NYC crime thriller (a "big breakthrough"), complete with high points, spoilers and some revelations about Gray himself: "I'm just not willing to give up on myself. If I'm going to fail, then I want to fail to the limits of my talent." We have moles at Cannes working on a Reeler follow-up; stay tuned.

--Here it is Friday, the third day of Cannes, and TONY film editor Melissa Anderson is just getting around to blogging. Sort of. Something about Juliette Binoche's shoulders. But success, 90 percent, showing up, etc. It's a long week; she'll get it figured out.

--How to while away your Friday online? I started with ScreenGrab's latest Top 10 list of cinema's all-time greatest offscreen feuds, a thoroughly addicitve and informative if admittedly argument-starting (where's Björk/von Trier? Kubrick/Duvall? We have footage of these!) read to accelerate the workday. Until it's over, at which point you're stuck with us. But back to the good news...

--Following its acquisition earlier this week of Tribeca prizewinner A Walk Into the Sea, Arthouse Films just announced the pick up of Andrew Neel's documentary about his famous portraitist grandmother, Alice Neel. The company will follow the doc's recently wrapped NYC engagement with additional theatrical stays and a DVD release in early '08.
