i am liking woody allens to rome with love although admittedly i am taking small bites. clearly fellini is his guiding light for this effort and while its mostly just silly it feels less self conscious and ponderous than many of his recent efforts.
VCR alert for A Christmas Carol on TCM tonight at 9:30. As I stated last year, this is the best version, and tonight is the only showing for this season. There will, however, be plenty of chances to see other treatments, as ACC is one of the all time most filmed pieces of literature out there (without even getting into the many non-traditional versions spun off from the basic premise.) Of course itís public domain, and short, but the plot is so tight, and with so much good dialogue, that itís pretty hard to mess up. An interesting comparison table is here.
