- 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.”

- Pulp Friction of the Hollywood Trade Magazines – Over at The Wrap, Sneider posted “What’s the Deal? Stop Trying to ‘Change’ the ‘Fifty Shades’ Castings—It’s Pointless!” He laments to me that he is putting all his energy into casting stories. “But casting gets hits. Whether it’s Miley Cyrus, Ben Affleck, or Dakota Johnson, it’s all about getting that name in a headline.” Which should lead anyone who believes information is power to ask a basic question: In an era that often values “stickiness” and the almighty click-through more than accuracy, analysis, or context, has the race to be first put meaningful entertainment journalism on the endangered list?
