Both in today’s NY Times:
Slate’s Bryan Curtis interviews Kevin Smith in advance of the Jersey Girls release. Jersey Girls makes Kevin Smith sound like the perfect spokesmodel for daddytypes.com, but Smith’s best comments are about Mel Gibson, “fellow Catholic.” [Damn, that’s one big tent.]
Tony Scott’s got a very astute read/review of Dogville, Lars “Von” Trier’s new movie. Scott makes some keen references to both Mayberry and South Park, while skewering the reactionary anti-anti-Americanism of reviews like Variety‘s.
Jessica Winter interviews LVT’s cinematographer, Anthony Dod Mantle, in the Voice. [Stay tuned for my own Dogville post later this week.]
