    Same here.

    Out on DVD/Blu soon, though.

    Review: 'Bettie Page Reveals All' The Authorized Therefore Definitive Bettie Page Bio-Doc...Right? | The Playlist

    Just as Page herself had all of the pieces (looks, brains, charisma) to be a bona fide star a la Ava Gardner in her heyday rather than a latter-day cult icon, this film has all of the pieces to be a great and thorough documentary (a cult turned popular subject, new and old footage, interviews with admirers, friends and colleagues, authorization by the lady herself), but misses the mark. There's just something unnervingly clinical about the whole film, exemplified by a tape recording of boyfriend Richard Arbib saying, "she liked sex and was very good at it." It all just lacks the va-va-voom vitality of Bettie Page that has drawn us in for decades and endures as her lasting legacy. [C+]
    I'd still like to see it.

    Joel Allen Schroeder, the director of Dear Mr. Watterson is appearing for Q&A after the 7:40 screening tonight and tomorrow at the North Hollywood Laemmle.

    DEAR MR. WATTERSON Q and A’s this Weekend at the NoHo | Laemmle - Laemmle.com

    My question, of course, is if this dude is named Schroeder, why is he focusing on Calvin and Hobbes and not Peanuts?

    The Act of Killing comes out on VOD, Blu and DVD 7 Jan 2014, but there's one last So Cal Chance to catch it in theatres: this morning (22 Dec) at 10:30AM at the Laemmle Santa Monica. Director Joshua Oppenheimer will even be there for a Q&A following. Also, it's a matinee, so it's $8.

    Apparently, an extended director's cut of The Act of Killing will be getting some theatrical engagements early next year. I'm not sure if that also means the 7 January home video releases will also be extended, but I'm looking pre-ordering either way, especially if there's a director's commentary. Really astonishing film.

    I love Errol Morris' work, inluding the Philip Glass music.

    Similar treatment to "Fog of War."
