In the French-made, English-language sleeper Taken, Liam Neeson was a former CIA operative who was (outlandishly) able to thwart a sex-trafficking ring. Audiences responded vociferously to his take-charge character. His latest film, Unknown, was also made in Europe—this time, Berlin—by Spanish-born director Jaume Collet-Serra, and it casts the reliable actor in a role that couldn’t be more different. In this yarn, he loses control of his life, or to be more specific, his identity.

When a documentary makes you interested in a subject you know nothing about, to the point of generating enthusiasm, I’d call that a successful film. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Deborah Morales have a lot to be proud of with their maiden effort in the documentary field, On the Shoulders of Giants, which is now available exclusively on Video On Demand through Comcast, Cox Cable, and Time Warner through the end of March.

I abhor sloppy reporting, and now I have been guilty of it. Somehow I managed to garble the facts in yesterday’s post about this week’s blogathon. No great harm has been done, but I would like to set the record straight.

I am proud to be part of this year’s blogathon “For the Love of Film (Noir),” an enterprise I missed out on when it was launched in 2010. Last year, film buffs just like you raised a sizable sum through grass-roots donations and helped to save three silent film shorts discovered at the New Zealand Archive. There's an equally worthy project on tap this year; details follow later in this posting.It’s been several months since the chief of the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Library in Moscow presented, with ceremonial flourish, digital copies of ten long-missing American silent films to Dr. James Billington at the Library of Congress.

One of the things I admire most about director Miguel Arteta’s films (including Chuck & Buck and The Good Girl) is that he shows such compassion for his characters. That’s why I was thrown off by Cedar Rapids, at first. The screenplay, by newcomer Phil Johnston, seems to be making fun of its naïve, almost childlike small-town hero, Tim Lippe, a dedicated insurance salesman played by Ed Helms.

History is where you find it, ranging from rare film clips of early Technicolor, silent-era Disney and more, newly posted online, and works of true scholarship, to amazing discoveries hiding in plain sight.
