Posted on 05 June 2014

The Grand Seduction fits my category Movies That Should Play in Sag Harbor.  Don McKellar’s charming Canadian comedy is entering its second weekend in New York City, where it has received rapturous reviews.  I certainly had never before read a critic calling a film “adorable,” much less in the New York Times.  McKellar (inset left) [...]

Zero Motivation fits my category Movies That Should Play in Sag Harbor.  I hope that will happen soon because the US distribution rights to the unique debut feature of Israeli director Talya Lavie were recently sold to Zeitgeist Films.  This follows its overwhelming premiere at TriBeCa Film Festival, where it won the Founders Award for [...]

Posted on 10 August 2012

By Bryan Boyhan For decades he was a familiar site, a gray haired man jogging along the side of the road, his head bent to the ground, arms swinging at his side in any weather the skies would serve up.
