Sometimes, the impulse to write does get stymied; it's hard to work up much enthusiasm when the entire critical landscape seems to be in a state of decline (and this has been the topic of much discussion, as witness the panel that followed the annual AICA meeting). I've seen a lot of movies in the last two weeks: i have now seen 12 of the features that will be part of the Brooklyn Academy of Music's CinemaFest, and, yes, there are trends that have emerged. I also saw a few other movies, such as Jacqueline Caux's documentary "Prism's Colors, Mechanics of Time"; i saw two documentaries on HBO, "Bobby Fischer Against the World" and "McEnroe/Borg: Fire & Ice". I also saw Errol Morris's "Tabloid" and John Turturro's "Passione". But it's been a lot and i need to try to process it all.
