"Hit Me" Schedule and Other Programming Notes

Just a heads up that tonight's episode of  Hit Me With Your Best Shot starring Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita (1960) must be delayed. It's a long film, I've been totally ill for two days and I want to give it its proper due. Plus this will give as many of you peeps out there a chance to see it as possible. All you need to do to take part in this 'more the merrier' movie-loving series is choose your favorite screen shot, post it somewhere public, and tell us why you love it so!

'Hit Me With Your Best Shot' Schedule
  • Wed 10/06 Requiem for a Dream (exact 10th ann.!)
  • Wed 10/13 La Dolce Vita (1960)
  • Wed 10/20 Mean Girls (2004) 
  • Wed 10/27 The Night of the Hunter (1955) Best Shot Season 1 finale! It's one of the best films of the 50s and if you haven't seen it, you simply must. Lillian Gish, Robert Mitchum, annoying kids, jawdropping noir lighting. A perfectly creepy classic to send us into Halloween week.
Other Programming Notes: Robert's Thursday Modern Maestros column will be ending in October so enjoy the last few columns before Robert is a married man and off on his honeymoon (Congratulations!). Meanwhile response to "Familiar Faces: Woody Allen's Hierarchy" was so good that that's getting its own series. Not a Woody Allen series mind you but a director/actor series. More excitement of all sorts to come as we head into awards season.

Which Oscar races and/or contending films are you most eager to see more coverage on? Don't be shy. Obviously The Film Experience won't leave you hanging on the Actress categories or foreign film. But where else should we dig deep this year?
