The News: Spitzer Casting Call

By S.T. VanAirsdale

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

--There must be a film angle in the news of our Gov. Eliot Spitzer's being linked to a prostitution ring on Monday, right? Of course there is: "[A]ll we at Defamer are interested in is who should play Eliot and wife Silda in the inevitable CBS Movie of the Week." Editor Seth Abramovitch's choices are Stanley Tucci and Mary McDonnell, but commenters are adding more. You're invited to join them, and when you're done there, for the sheer, non-film-related joy of it, have a look-see at Gothamist readers' Spitzer Photoshop experiments. They're good for whole seconds of amusement.

--At The Film Experience Blog, Nathaniel Rogers points us to the Ziegfeld Theater's spring schedule of musicals, repertory blockbusters and a few first-run tentpoles. None exceed the sheer anticipation provoked by "Go Ape Week," featuring a 40th anniversary revival of Planet of the Apes on the massive screen on West 54th Street.

--If you haven't heard Jeff Lipsky tell his My Dinner With Andre story before, S. James Snyder has a pretty good version of it in his mid-point survey of the ongoing Louis Malle series at IFC Center.

--Michael Haneke made poor Entertainment Weekly blogger Missy Schwartz cry with his remake of Funny Games, and her colleague Clark Collis wants answers! Soft answers, facile answers (I know them when I hear them), but answers nonetheless. Thanks for that, I guess.
