of Things Past

I recently upgraded the following Siffblog entries, all from 2005-2006. The point was to jazz things up with new—or better quality— images, cleaner formatting ("Symmetry! symmetry!"), links, and the like. So, if you missed any of them the first time around...

***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** *****

The Beat That My Heart Skipped (dir: Jacques Audiard; with Romain Duris), The Bridesmaid (Claude Chabrol; Benoît Magimel, above), A Chat With Robinson Devor (five-part interview), Festival (Murray Lerner; Bob Dylan, etc.), Free Zone (Amos Gitai), Histoire(s) du Cinéma (Godard), Kryzstof Kieslowski Short Films, Max and Grace (AKA My Suicidal Sweetheart), Pusher II - With Blood on My Hands (with Mads Mikkelsen), Russian Dolls (more Duris!), Sherrybaby (with Maggie Gyllenhaal), Shopgirl (with Claire Danes), Sophie Scholl - The Final Days (best foreign-language film nominee), Spirit of the Beehive (Víctor Erice),
and The Treasures of Long Gone John (with the man himself).

Endnote: Time permitting, I plan to revisit all my reviews to ensure that the layout is consistent throughout. For those unfamiliar with Siffblog, the site began as a forum for Tablet writers to cover the Seattle International Film Festival. Since the paper collapsed, Mike Whybark has kept the site going. Now contributors post reviews, interviews, and other bits of business all year long. (Aside from, you can access the site using,, and After covering the fest for Siffblog for three years, I'll be writing for
