As per tradition, some of the week's more positively spun movie news of note from around New York:
--Brooklyn Public Library CFO John Vitali told the NY Post on Thursday that the library is in talks to deliver not only books to readers' homes, but free Netflix rentals. It's great if it's true, obviously; alas, this is such a scoop that even Netflix didn't know about it. I'm sure it's nothing a quick phone call from a lawyer can't clear up.
--As noted at GreenCine Daily, critics are racing for superlatives to describe The Earrings of Madame de..., now screening with a new print at Film Forum.
--Revolutionary Road, Richard Yates' brilliant, crushing tale of wedded woe in suburban New York, is finally coming to the screen -- with stunt casting in full effect and Sam Mendes behind the camera. Whatever, I'll take it.
--The New York Underground Film Festival is coming up, and that means one thing: Tube Time, one of the great annual events in New York cinema. Art Fag City editor (and Reeler contributor) Paddy Johnson explains everything -- she's competing this year and could use your tips.
