Altman Film To Premiere At Berlin
The Berlin Film Festival has announced most of its lineup. I'm most excited by the debut of Robert Altman's "A Prairie Home Companion," which has a great cast. It's only been a few years since "Gosford Park," one of his best, so there's reason to hope. Other intriguing films include "V For Vendetta" (which I assume is a mess) and two flicks from Michel Gondry: "The Science of Sleep," about a man held captive by people in his dreams; and "Dave Chappelle's Block Party," a concert film/sketch comedy piece inspired by "Wattstax." That could be tremendous fun and who doesn't want Chappelle to stop with the online gaming and rejoin the world?
