Screening Gotham: Write if You (Can't) Get Work Edition

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

--Current events have me in a fairly humorless mood, so I'll let The Observer's Christine Smallwood make the jokes: "It’s a big world," she writes in her feature about the diminishing role of video clerks in New York. "Clerks can do lots of things. 'There are tons of options for them,' (current clerk Rob) Hatch-Miller typed [via iChat!] 'I mean, they could start blogs, they could write for any number of publications.' " Friendly advice to Rob Hatch-Miller from someone who knows: You're better off as a clerk, believe me.

--Or, like the gang at Reverse Shot, you could do it for the love. Take the current "On Demand" issue -- "a clearinghouse for the questionable taste of earlier years as the youthful transgressions of the gestating movie lover are wrenched into the cruel light of day," writes RS co-founder Jeff Reichert. Actually, there's more to it than that, but they tell it best.

--If you thought the Weinstein Company letter-writing apparatus was busy yesterday, wait until it gets its heads around Patrick Goldstein's column in today's L.A. Times. I had to stop reading after, "I feel like putting Harvey's picture on a milk carton." There's an interview, too. Good Christ, are there no new stories in the world?

--On second thought, don't answer that.

Damn it, I really must become a film writer so I can place a Reverse Shot piece on Labyrinth...
