  • 10 / 40 / 70 (Ocean's Twelve) – An experiment in writing about film: select three different, arbitrary time codes (in this case the 10 minute, 40 minute, and 70 minute mark), freeze the frames, and use that as the guide to writing about the film. No compromise: the film must be stopped at these time codes. What if, instead of freely choosing what parts of the film to address, one let the film determine this? Constraint as a form of freedom
  • Comparing TV, film versions of 'State of Play' (LA Times) – How a six-hour BBC miniseries was streamlined and Americanized into a two-hour political thriller.
  • Disneyn luontosuhteen menneisyys ja nykytila (NY Times) – Cultural theorists credit “Walt Disney’s True-Life Adventures” from the 1950s as the first films to commercialize nature overtly, and some even draw a line between his empathetic depiction of animals and the eco-political climate of the 1960s and beyond.
  • Seuraavan kauden jenkki-tv-sarjoita noin puolet on komedioita (LA Times) – Of 71 scripted pilots in contention for slots at the five networks, 33 are half-hour comedies and 19 of those are multi-camera formats — shows taped before a live audience, and sometimes enhanced by laugh tracks.
