It was all about peace and love this Halloween.

About Jackrabbit Slim

Location: Vegas, Baby! I’m much older than the other whippersnappers here, a baby boomer. I tend to be more snobbish about film, disdaining a lot of the multiplex fare for “cinema.” My favorite films: Woody Allen’s oeuvre (up until about 1990), The Godfather, The Graduate, A Hard Day’s Night, Pulp Fiction. Politics: Well, George McGovern was my political hero. I’m also a prickly atheist. Occupation: Poised to be an English teacher in Las Vegas. For many years I was an editor at Penthouse Magazine. My role on this blog seems to be writing lots of reviews and being the resident Oscar maven.

  1. I was going to start HAGEBOC for Interstellar but determined it’s too early. We’ll start with Hunger Games.

    It’s interesting how I went from enthusiastically monitoring every aspect of the production and marketing of Nolan’s films to not caring at all about his latest.

  2. MIke Nichols has died–he had an extraordinary career. I’ll write something up in the next few days, as I try to process just how many films and plays of his I saw.
