The News: No Country Overkill is On

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

--I know I've done my part to suffocate the Coen brothers' art to within an inch of its life, but really: Have we gotten to the point where we are actually parsing the film shot-by-shot to see if someone is or is not standing behind a door? "Where is ruthless killer Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) when Sheriff Ed Tom Bell makes his non-official exploration of the motel crime scene after the massacre there?" Glenn Kenny asks on his blog at Premiere. "And if he is where we think he is -- that is, laying in wait in the motel room Ed Tom enters -- why doesn't he (Anton) do anything, where does he go... what does that make him?" It's up to you to tell me I'm oversimplifying, but Christ. Can't a guy just walk away?

--Karina Longworth has found the film angles in both Emily Gould's departure from Gawker and the impending apocalypse. Sort of.

--The Sunday Times published a fantastic piece about NYC video artist Paul Chan, who is presently staging an outdoor version of Waiting For Godot in a New Orleans location decimated by Hurricane Katrina. I covered Chan's journey to Sundance earlier this year and am now wishing I had a trip South in my future.

--Maybe I've just missed these over the last year and a half, but Ironic Sans' 60-second Life Of... videos are blowing my mind. Nadal's Shadow had me grinning like I'd never seen a movie before, and I guess there are "bonus points" available to viewers who can identify the street this cab meter is trolling. I have an idea, but I'll never tell.
