The News: J-Long Island

By S.T. VanAirsdale

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

--Page Six reports today that North Shore University Hospital staffers are "aflutter" with the rumored arrival of Jennifer Lopez, whose Liz Taylor disguise (pictured at right) was fooling nobody as the actress/songstress/reproductress settled in to make twins. The paparazzi wagon train en route to Manhasset can reportedly be seen from outer space. Congratulations to all in advance; I don't think I can stand to cover any more.

--A pair of major fest faves are headed to local theaters via ThinkFilm and Magnolia, according to statements dispatched late Tuesday. Straight outta Toronto '07, ThinkFilm will strike first in May with the split-screen Ellen Page drama The Tracey Fragments; Magnolia will follow with the Sundance World Documentary Jury and Audience Award-winner Man on Wire. Check out The Reeler's recent interview with Wire director James Marsh and save the date for late summer.

--Today in Little Known Oscar Facts: Kris Tapley notes that Brooklyn's own Vanessa Roth, the co-producer of Cynthia Wade's Oscar-nominated documentary short Freeheld, could join the Coppolas, the Hustons and John and Hayley Mills as the fourth father-daughter combo to each win Academy Awards.

--I read this the other day and was reluctant to link to it, but in retrospect it's lovely to see David Denby coming around to a point The Reeler made three months ago: The Coens are a totally insulated, deliberate, redundant -- and sure, talented -- phenomenon symbolized throughout No Country For Old Men. The only difference: Our piece won't make you want an hour of your life back.
