Screening Gotham: Post vs. Soderbergh. Again.

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

--I've wondered for a long time what Page Six has against Steven Soderbergh, starting back with its misbegotten box-office sniper job from 2005 and continuing today with a heartfelt message of concern over the filmmaker's own selective sense of history in his upcoming biopics of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara. "Soderbergh will no doubt gloss over the six months after Castro seized power in 1959, when Che was in charge of La Cabana fortress, overseeing the trial and execution of 600 political prisoners," the Page predicts, also getting in a nice dissident quote recalling "the sorry howling of the dying." In other pursuits of social justice, P6 also has the story of Terrence Howard's most romantic cab ride ever. Not for the squeamish.

--"Who will improve on (Adam) Sandler? Who can do for New York, in the wake of 9/11, what the young Scorsese, De Niro, and Keitel did for the city in earlier years, and under less threatening skies?" Anthony Lane, reviewing Reign Over Me, wants to know!

--But what David Garvin really wanted to do was direct.
