Depp There were huge crowds at the screening of "Public Enemies" at the Mall of America last night. They filled two theaters and still had to turn people away. I'm mulling over the film in my mind, and will write it up closer to the opening on Wednesday. It's fair to say that Johnny Depp does put in a great performance though.
Klein Make sure you check out my colleague Jim Bickal's chat with William Klein who will be the subject of a Regis Dialog tonight at the Walker Art Center. It sounds like he will have a lot of stories. Jim says they talked for an hour, but he has distilled it down onto a great feature which you can hear right here.
Maddin And I have been meaning to post a link to Kathie Smith's fun account of "Saddest Music in the World" director Guy Maddin's recent appearance at the Talkies in the Twin Cities.
