Re: “Yelling to the Sky, The Kid With a Bike, The Duellists

The Kid with a Bike looks like a fairly simple story, but the Dardenne brothers are great at turning the ordinary into an extraordinary affective tale. The grand jury prize is pretty impressive, and I can’t wait to check it out. I was talking to a friend that I work with at DISH who said that it was his favorite foreign film of 2012, and we usually have pretty similar tastes in movies. I just saw that I could rent it through Blockbuster @Home from DISH, which is great because I don’t like buying movies that I have never seen. I love the wide variety of titles that they have because I can check out everything from Hollywood blockbusters to little indie movies like these!

Re: “CineFiles

The Definitive Document of the Dead sounds like a must see.

Re: “Cinefiles

Have to correct you, Justin. Both Key and Peele have talked about their bi-racial upbringings in early episodes and interviews.

Re: “Cinefiles

I am a Colorado College graduate who has spent about half my adult life developing The River Why as well as co-writing the screenplay. I also mortgaged my house to help pay for it. Critics certainly have the right to hate the film, but it might be nice to remember that there are real people behind it who risked a great deal to attempt to create something of value.

To the letter writer friend of the author who (rightfully) defends the novel: please do not "assume" anything about a movie you have not seen. I urge you to see the movie (available on DVD or VOD almost everywhere) and decide for yourself. The author of the novel has, purposefully, not seen the movie, and has not read the screenplay since an early draft in 1985.

I can assure you that we have talked to, and heard from, dozens of audience members who have read and adored the book who also, having actually seen the film, feel that the movie is a splendid adaptation. The River Why Facebook page contains some of these comments.

I look forward to hearing more from Colorado Springs.
