Just realized it's Wednesday.....three-day weekends really mess with my schedule.
Retro in more than just its title sequence, Peyton Reed's Down With Love was a PoMo twist on the Doris Day/Rock Hudson romantic comedies (Pillow Talk, Lover Come Back) of the early 60s. It's far from perfect, and I didn't actually catch up with it until a couple of years ago, but its charm supersedes its flaws. There were, perhaps unsurprisingly, only a handful of correct submissions. Congrats to those that got it.
To answer a question asked by more than a few people -- yes, I have every intention of bringing the blog back to life. The short reason for the delay -- not enough hours in the day. Between work on Benten's upcoming release The Good Times Kid, planning for Fish Eyes, writing the occasional review for Time Out New York, and finalizing the deals on some very exciting future projects, there's just been little time to write anything longer than 140 characters. Yes, I've been bitten by the Twitter bug. Horrifying.
This week's belated entry -- a reprieve after last week's challenging one. Everyone should know this film. Submit your answers to this address. Good luck!
