Links for Youse Guys

From criterionforum.org: David Lynch's view of product placement in movies.



Not exactly a film link, but yesterday's BBC World Service had a bit about a blog. What makes this blog different is that it's the blog of a soldier from WWI, posted from the letters he wrote home by his grandson ninety years to the day that each letter was written.



Film by the teenage daughter of a participant at a board I frequent. This is winning awards for her locally.


Life getting even stranger than fictions:

Basic in December, two inmates escaped a la Shawshank Redemption from a northern New Jersey prison, leaving behind a thank-you note to one of the prison guards for "providing the perfect tools" to escape. A sad note to that: the guard committed suicide after the event. He wasn't suspected of actually aiding the escape, although he was facing questioning. He was, however, apparently an extreme perfectionist and it's possible that that was what drove him to take his own life.

Very, very sad. They haven't found the escapees yet; but if they do, I wouldn't be surprised if they were charged with some form of murder.
