Screening Gotham: Once Bus Sex Edition

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

--What's the worst possible thing you can think of to spoil the hard-earned post-holiday calm of this lovely Tuesday morning? How about 25 years of Leonard Maltin on Entertainment Tonight? Nope. Maybe Paul Newman announcing his retirement? Not even that. Rather, I opened my New York Post this morning to have my innocent memories of Once shattered by the indelicate disclosure that Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova are sleeping together. Or rather, as Page Six says, "on their recent, cross-country bus tour to promote the flick, nature took its course." Seeing as she's 19, I thought this might mean helping her with her homework. Alas.

--In a turn of historic and conceptual synergy you could probably see coming a mile away, the Woodstock Film Festival today unveiled the Peter Max poster art for its event upstate this fall. And as of this writing, 100 signed, limited-edition prints are available for purchase on the fest's Web site.

--Congrats to Nathaniel Rogers, whose Film Experience is one of my favorite regular reads and who just joined the gang at Zoom In Online: "I still can't shut up about the movies but thankfully nobody asks me to do that anymore."

--There's a million times more chatter happening at Basil Tsiokos' blog, where the NewFest kingpin has dozens of interviews with filmmakers featured at the 19th annual LGBT festival (starting this Thursday). All right, so maybe not "a million" -- it's more like "nine," but it's pretty impressive nevertheless. Look for The Reeler's preview of NewFest '07 later this week.
