If you recognize the image, then you can guess what my next Foreign Region DVD Report will be; if not, well, Tuesday's only a couple of days away anyhow. I find in this frame a nice distillation of the wit of this particular, often misunderstood filmmaker.
In other news, as the Oscars approach, I see that Jeff Wells has used the imminence of the awards ceremony as an excuse to hit the laudanum early. I now really and truly hope that The Hurt Locker wins Best Picture, so that on Tuesday morning I can get the paper and read the headline "Film Blogger" Arrested In Trendy Bistro Fracas or some such. Funsy!
As I'm here, I'll remind you that my own liveblogging of the Academy Awards will start here, God willing, at about 7:30 p.m. Eastern time. I will be unassisted by any mind-altering substances.
