    That Really Was Aaron Sorkin Defending "The Social Network" in a Blog Comment

    I stand corrected. For the past 24 hours the film blog water cooler has been populated with chatter about Aaron Sorkin's response to the sexism criticisms against "The Social Network." But I was very skeptical, for a few reasons. Even after I was told the blog belonged to a fellow TV writer it still didn't make sense to me. Sorkin hates the Internet.

And, most importantly, why would anyone feel the need to defend his work, let alone actually do so, on a relatively random Blogspot blog, to another commenter on that blog? Especially when every other outlet on the web has had some commentary abo...

    "Secretariat" - Horse Race War?

    I'm pretty disappointed that "Secretariat" doesn't open with long, rotating shots of Ancient Greek horse statues, one of which would transform into a real thoroughbred via camera dissolve, as if to imply the titular 1973 Triple Crown-winning stallion was born of marble and god-like perfection. I expected something akin to "Olympia" -- more than "Triumph of the Will" -- after reading Andrew O'Hehir's review at Salon, with its well-circulated and well-criticized pull-quote saying thus: "in its totality 'Secretariat' is a work of creepy, half-hilarious master-race propaganda almost worthy of Leni Riefenstahl." But there really aren't enough slow...
