Screening Gotham: You Can't Fire Mia Farrow, Because She Quits

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

--New York yesterday mourned the loss of film ex-royalty and humanitarian champion Mia Farrow, who, in a Wall Street Journal editorial asking, "Does (Steven) Spielberg really want to go down in history as the Leni Riefenstahl of the Beijing Games?", earned a swift and severe career death sentence that will free her up for a dusty, deprived eternity of UNICEF missions and, if she's lucky, John Moore films. Poor Jack Valenti was so upset about the whole thing that his head damn near exploded.

--So much for The Nanny Diaries' April 20 bow. The Weinstein Company pushed the Scarlett Johansson/Laura Linney comedy back to September at the earliest, with an "insider" (certainly, absolutely not named or affiliated with anyone named "Harvey") noting to Page Six, "It's better for awards consideration. This is a better plan." Hear that, Wall Street? All part of a plan. Go back to mourning Mia Farrow.

--Over at Reverse Shot's blog, a pseudonymous contribution gently thwacks the New York Underground Film Festival's opening-night selection VIVA before following Nathan Lee's lead into defining what "underground" actually means. Discuss, debate, etc.

"Poor Jack Valenti was so upset about the whole thing that his head damn near exploded."

Ha ha! A classic line.

And as much as so many wish that bastard would just go on and die, really it's his fucking organization that should die instead.
