That Time Of Year...
2

Lots of film news this week. Awards are being announced, Sundance unveiled its lineup, the annual write-ups have begun. I, on the other hand, have been doing my own work, spending time with my boy, reading books when I have some quiet time and have generally been COMPLETELY OUT OF IT. And yet, I am at peace. Why am I not engaged, eager to share my thoughts, plans and ideas about this hectic cinematic season? I can't get excited. Awards will be given, films accepted and rejected; another year, another cycle. I don't feel cynical about it; I just don't feel much of anything... I'll let Bill Murray summarize it for me:

Precisely.

More when I can...
