May Reviews

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

Amazon DVDs: Mercy - The Complete Series [five-disc set], The Other Woman (Don Roos directs Natalie Portman), and HBO's five-part Mildred Pierce (Todd Haynes directs Kate Winslet).

Amazon Theatricals: Circumstance and Forks over Knives.

Still playing (or yet to open): (Pom Wonderful Presents) The Great-
est Movie Ever Sold
, Meek's Cutoff, Miral, and
Water for Elephants.

Flavorwire: I get a mention in this piece by Jason Gross.

Though we salute a good number of writers here, this list is obvious-
ly incomplete. There are great writers who are no longer with us (Pen-
ny Valentine), who aren’t writing about music now (Barbara Flaska,
Stacy McArdle), who write occasionally now (Carla DeSantis, Caro-
la Dibbell, Deborah Frost, Amy Schroeder), who currently cover
other parts of the pop spectrum (Kathy Fennessy, Joy Press, Tri-
cia Romano) or whose current music scribing status is unclear...

Parallax View: Interview with Mike Mills (Beginners).

5/24 update: Unfortunately, I didn't get to interview Mr. Mills.

SIFF: Crying Out (À L'Origine d'un Cri), Donor, The Empire
of Mid-South
(L'Empire du Milieu du Sud), Jucy, Lesson Plan -
The Story of the Third Wave
, Love Crime (Crime d'Amour), A
Matter of Taste - Serving Up Paul Liebrandt
, My Afternoons
with Margueritte
(La Tête en Friche), Oliver Sherman, On
(Tournée), Three (Drei), and Winds of Heaven.

Siffblog: Dispatch #1, Dispatch #2, and Dispatch #3.

Video Librarian: Behind the Burly Q, Day-
dream Nation

, Biebermania!, From Prada to Nada, Guy
and Madeline on a Park Bench
, and Miral.
