The films of Jerry Schatzberg, particularly the key works he directed in the 1970s, have been undervalued in the eyes of many critics who, in their survey of American cinema have elevated other directors to iconic status. (He is not alone – Michael Ritchie is another director richly deserving of re-evaluation.) So this brief retrospective, which includes a masterclass with the filmmaker, is a very welcome addition to the third edition of the American Film Festival.

One of my favorite international sales agent is Memento. Now they are representing the film of one of my favorite people in the biz, the hyphenate director-producer-writer who also was put into the role of casting director by Steve Soderbergh while casting Che, Rodrigo (Rigo to his friends) Bellot.
