January Reviews

These are the reviews and other pieces I'm working on this month.

Amazon DVDs: The Rockford Files - Season Six [three-disc set] (click here and here for seasons two and three) and MGM - When the Lion Roars: The Story of a Hollywood Empire [two-disc set].

Amazon Theatrical: Notorious, my second B.I.G.
review after Nick Broomfield's Biggie & Tupac, which I
covered for Amazon and the SIFF '02 program guide.

Still playing or yet to open: Burn After Reading, Doubt, Lakeview Terrace, Let the Right One In, Milk, Rachel Getting Married, Timecrimes, and Waltz with Bashir.

Siffblog: Wendy and Lucy and the continuation of an
interview with Tia Lessin. I also fixed some more links:
Deep End, Lemming, Pierrot le Fou, Shopgirl, Married
Life and Prefab People
, and a chat with Michel Gondry.

Still playing or yet to open: Gran Torino.

Video Librarian: Absolutely Safe, The Cheetah Girls - One World [click here for my first Cheetah Girls review], En Vogue - Live in the USA, The Great Polar Bear Adventure, Ice-T - Live
in Montreux, Inheritance, and Through the Eastern Gate.

Endnote: Wendy and Lucy, Kelly Reichardt's fine follow-up
to the excellent Old Joy, opens at Seattle's Varsity on 1/23 (that's
Michelle Williams, above, as Wendy). Film still from Blake City.
