The News: Otto Focus

By S.T. VanAirsdale

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

--Film Forum's Otto Preminger retrospective closes Thursday, and Michael Musto is over the moon about Foster Hirsch's biography and last week's Q&A joining Hirsch and Bunny Lake is Missing co-star Keir Dullea: "Dullea's best day on the set of Bunny Lake? 'The day I found out I got the lead in 2001: A Space Odyssey!' "

--Radioactive sprinklings of Golden Globes fallout continue to land around New York, with Richard Corliss overblowing his awards-show requiem in Time Magazine ("In other years I've parsed the portents of the Globe awards, and applauded or derided the winners' speeches. This time there was no star wattage; the announcers on the channels I watched all sank into a sea of blandness and blondness") and even indieWIRE editor-in-chief and confirmed all-around nice guy Eugene Hernandez getting off a sucker punch at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association: "Sunday night's 30-minute press conference to announce the winners was more in keeping with the value of the actual awards." Better luck next year, HFPA, assuming there is a next year

--Goodbye, Sharon Waxman. You will be missed. By someone else.

--I'm a day behind on this, but if I hadn't heard maybe you'd haven't either, and either way, do you really want to hear: Scarlett Johansson is directing a segment of the upcoming short film anthology New York, I Love You.
