A good Thursday to you all.


In the next week, I’ll be posting a series of pieces about Munyurangabo and director Lee Isaac Chung. The first, an essay contributed by Chung himself, is now posted at Filmwell.org.

Also online today: CT Movies has published my commentary on two films: “Departures” and “The Song of Sparrows”.

And, speaking of “departures” …

David Carradine has died. At IFC, David Hudson is compiling the tributes and developing reports. Chris Willman has posted a reflection on a recent, memorable live appearance.
