- Kent Jones on Film Criticism’s Condition – Rather, the two complementary actions embodied in Wood’s approach—discarding surface detail in order to look to the inner core, and restoring the film and/or the filmmaker to a state of phantom wholeness—have become habitual over the years, and resulted in a dramatic gulf between how, why, and for whom films are actually made, and the way they are commonly written about by critics. I don’t believe that the gulf between artistic practice and criticism is as wide in any other art form.
- Francis Ford Coppola Reveals Every ‘Godfather’ Film Took Place In Same Narrative World – “Observant fans sometimes point out that a character named Michael Corleone appears in all three movies and that he’s played by Al Pacino each time, and I can assure you that’s no coincidence,” said Coppola, who noted that “all the puzzle pieces are there” for anyone who looks hard enough at the three motion pictures. “In fact, those aren’t three different people, but rather one character who appears three times. Michael in New York in the first film, Michael in Lake Tahoe in the second one, then Michael back in Manhattan in the third—they’re the very same man.”

- Oscar Night in Hollywood (Raymond Chandler, 1948) – Technically, they are voted, but actually they are not decided by the use of whatever artistic and critical wisdom Hollywood may happen to possess. They are ballyhooed, pushed, yelled, screamed, and in every way propagandized into the consciousness of the voters so incessantly, in the weeks before the final balloting, that everything except the golden aura of the box office is forgotten.

- Alec Baldwin: Good-bye, Public Life – I probably have to move out of New York. I just can’t live in New York anymore. Everything I hated about L.A. I’m beginning to crave. L.A. is a place where you live behind a gate, you get in a car, your interaction with the public is minimal. I used to hate that. But New York has changed. Manhattan is like Beverly Hills. And the soul of New York has moved to Brooklyn, where everything new and exciting seems to be. I have to accept that. I want my newest child to have as normal and decent a life as I can provide. New York doesn’t seem the place for that anymore.
