Viewed 9/20/11 by Doug Duke I saw 50/50 almost a year and half ago when its tentative title was still LIVE WITH IT, and even then I loved it! I was so happy that on September 20th, 2011 I got to revisit it! It was just as great, if not better than the first time […]Read more "KCET Cinema Series: “50/50”"
Viewed 9/6/11 by Doug Duke My most anticipated film of the year, DRIVE, played on September 6th, 2011 at the Aero Theatre and I was blown away!

Viewed 6/21/11 by Doug Duke Another week at the KCET Summer Series and another film that blew me away! PAGE ONE: INSIDE THE NEW YORK TIMES is remarkable! As soon as it opens, it starts with a montage showing all the newspapers that had to close down due to irrelevance, basically. Newspapers are dinosaurs just […]Read more "KCET Cinema Series: “Page One: Inside the New York Times”"
