Throwback graphics

I look forward to ESPN Classic's series of contempo college hoops games produced with 1970's production values. In particular I look forward to silent, static, drop-shadowed, yellow supers.

Shawshank Commentary

Probably the best director's commentary I've ever heard: Frank Darabont on The Shawshank Redemption. He somehow at once personifies the hollywood insider, struggling outsider and movie fan.

Five Obstructions

I'm not even a fifth of the way through The Five Obstructions and it's a weird, thrilling examination of the mechanics of cinema and the perverse world of Lars Von Trier. Recommended.
