Back to the library
This past summer, the Clark County Library sponsored a "Critic's Choice" series with some local film critics choosing favorite movies to present. I introduced John Sayles' Lone Star, and it seemed to go well. Apparently, the library folks liked the result, because this month the series returns, with a focus on overlooked films of 2007. I'll be presenting two films this time around: Joey Lauren Adams' Come Early Morning, which is technically a 2006 release but played briefly in Vegas in January 2007; and Craig Brewer's Black Snake Moan, which has gotten far too little attention at year-end list-making time. If you're in Vegas, you can see me ramble about these movies on January 8 (Come Early Morning) and January 22 (Black Snake Moan), both at 7 p.m., at the Clark County Library at Flamingo and Maryland Parkway.
