The Man From Porlock, however, isn't going anywhere. I'll be on- and off-line for the remainder of the week; and once I start work my posting may be not quite as pervasive as it's been this summer. But I will be here, I will post, I will respond to comments. And I will continue reading the excellent blogs so many of you contribute. I've lost track of how many times I've read from so many of you a review of a film I've never seen or even heard about, then promptly went to the nearest theater, ordered it from Netflix or picked it up at the library. All of you have deeply enriched my moviegoing experience, so I need to scope out the cinemas near my new residence, give Netflix my change-of-address and get a new library card as soon as possible.
To hopefully return the favor, I highly recommend the great Winter's Bone (in theaters) and the very funny Smiley Face (on DVD). For stimulating film analysis, check out Paul Brunick's perceptive review of Salt, Stephen Altobello's hilarious and insightful series on the history of the Wilhelm Scream (at a blog new to me, Peel Slowly), and the outstanding video essay series by a few of our friends at The Museum of the Moving Image. Last but not least, don't miss this week's John Huston Blogathon, hosted by Adam Zanzie at Icebox Movies. I'll be in transit, followed by unpacking boxes and dealing with a high-maintenance cat, but will certainly check it out when I can. Keep the comments coming around these parts too, if you have any.
