If this blog had skin, it'd be all pruney after a whole month in those April Showers. If you didn't enjoy that series you were probably cursing the blog. It's safe to come back in the room. We've towelled off. Here were ten dry highlights of the month that was.
Nicole and Rabbit Hole some thoughts on the great actress and her eclectic filmography
Movie Themed Easter Eggs Watchmen and more... I was feeling crafty
Nashville Film Festival my narrow Nicole Kidman miss and some interesting films: zombie picture Make-Out with Violence, future romcom hit (500) Days of Summer, lost 70s gem Girlfriends and the jolting transgendered doc Prodigal Sons.
Foolish Oscar Predictions the first round. Can't wait to see how year develops
Thinky Sci-Fi two new pictures falling on the brainier side or conceptual side of the sci-fi genre
Cannes LineUp or 'What Everyone Will Be Talking About in May'
I had much help from guest bloggers this month
Whatever Works Rosengje took in Woody Allen's latest at ShoWest and liked what she saw. Particularly in regards to the ever wonderful Patty Clarkson.
Chlöe Sevigny Adam's take on her secretive screen presence
The Art of Self-Advertising Adam on Almodóvar on Almodóvar
British Films in the 00s Dave's choices for the best of the Brit-flicks
Coming in May
<--- April showers bring... May Flowers. Plus: Hugh Jackman, lots of Terminator nonsense (I'm sorry. I love the franchise... why aren't any of you with me on this?), my various issues with Star Trek, Tilda Swinton in Julia and Pixar's Up. And finally, *hopefully* a return to those previously regularly scheduled blog series I've been neglecting (sigh)
