Screening Gotham: Reign Over 3,000 Miles Away

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

--Really, when you think about a much-anticipated New York film dealing with the microcosm of one man's tragedy during 9/11, a Los Angeles-only press junket just makes sense. Or at least it did to Sony, which hosted interviews with Reign Over Me stars Adam Sandler, Don Cheadle and Liv Tyler and director Mike Binder recently in California. For more, we go to Coming Soon's Heather Newgen, reporting live from hell.

--From the archives, just discovered: The Brooklyn Rail features an interview with Albert Maysles on nothing in particular. But, you know, in a good way: "The very common journalistic notion is that unhappy families are different and happy families are the same so why bother if it’s a happy one? ... In fact, I don’t think they’ve tried the other. It might work. The Dalai Lama is probably the most popular person in the world today. Where’s his negativity?"

--Brooklyn's favorite filmmaking twins, Jeff and James Israel, premiered their latest short Face Value last week at SXSW. How to commemorate? How else? An Israel Brothers Comic Book in five chapters. Start here and work your way forward.

--Non-film-related note (unless you count Barry Diller haunting the joint): As previously seen at last year's Tokion Creativity Now fest, The New Yorker Conference is doing a bit of a lousy job booking women speakers and participants for its panels and events. And as usual, Art Fag City proprietor (and Reeler contributor) Paddy Johnson is leading to charge to straighten this shit out. It could be going better, so get in her corner and start sending some e-mails.
