    "The Social Network" Rant

    I feel like at this point I've talked "The Social Network" to death over a weekend of New York Film Festival-related social events. I saw it early Friday morning, and have ever since been in a remarkable minority in feeling slightly underwhelmed by it. It would be way easier to just love it as much as most folks do and coast through conversation with genuine agreement. But that hasn't been the case, and it's been awkward. For one, it's not like I didn't like the film. It's very well-made and offers a variety of worthy elements I'll detail in a bit. But because I wasn't hailing it as the second coming of "Citizen Kane" or convinced it in a...

    Gloria Stuart Remembered

    When you’ve lived a full life and made it to the century mark, it’s hard to complain, but Gloria Stuart still had a special spark even in her 101st year on the planet. Her energy was waning, and her mind could wander, but she loved life, including her family, her artwork, her fine-edition books, kites and bonsai plants. I’m happy that she was able to celebrate her 100th birthday in high style two months ago with a series of events, including a citation from the Screen Actors Guild, which she helped to found, and a gala evening at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which positively thrilled her. (I was privileged to host that eve...
