Specials: "The Dark Crystal." Proulx-poo. Carell and WHO?

Sunday specials:

CRYSTAL METHOD
Peter Chattaway finally watched The Dark Crystal. And he’s not so sure it’s the “New Age” trip it has been sometimes described to be.

PROULX-POO
E. Anne Proulx’s account of the Oscars would never be described as “a romp.”

“IT’S THREE COLORS: BLUE MEETS THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRIGIN…”
What great actress would you least expect to see paired with Steve Carell in a romantic comedy? How about my favorite actress, Juliette Binoche?

    I have lived with racism my entire life, know what it looks like, and have experienced it in almost all its forms. I think Crash is a lousy film, poorly made (some of the worse use of slow-motion and music I have ever seen and heard), confused about what it wants to say, and naive if not completely blind on the topic of race.
    That said, while reading Ms. Proulx’s article I was quite amused to hear her use the phrase “here was an atmosphere of insufferable self-importance”, cuz it sounds like someone hasn’t even chanced the thought that maybe her film lost, not because it covered a risque topic, but because maybe it really wasn’t very good.

    Hmmm, I wonder if Proulx’s reference to Scientology is a dig at Crash director Paul Haggis?
