Screening Gotham: Lindsay Lohan, Now Half-Off?

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

--Everyone's weighing in today on the Tragedy of Lindsay Lohan, but look no further than Variety's industry survey for the latest on unemployability, insurance troubles, the best ways to hide your stash, rehearsals in rehab, sluffing the Tonight Show and word from philosophical NYC sales agent Andrew Herwitz, who wagers: "A lot of indie producers are probably going to be able to cast her in interesting parts because she will actually be reading their scripts. Not a lot of other scripts may be sent to her for a while." New York screenwriters, start your engines!

--Tarnation director and local indie stalwart Jonathan Caouette this week contributed an all-too-brief essay to The Guardian, detailing the merits of John Maringouin's own troubled-family memoir Running Stumbled. The film plunged off the radar in the States after a minor burst last summer; evidently the DVD is available now.

--We had a casual look last week at Errol Morris' new photography blog on the New York Times Web site, which we liked well enough. Not so for Vulture, which thinks a two-week layoff is underachieving. And what of the filmmaker's ad-man conflicts of interest? Whatever. There's only so much counsel you can accept from a blog that counts hunting Paul Dergarabedian for sport among its pastimes. I'll take the hiatus, thanks.
