Savant Column

Saturday June 2, 2018


As circulated by Joe Dante, Laura Jacobs has written a fine essay for Vanity Fair that revisits a fine, fine movie by that guy tossed out of the Academy — what’s his name? It’s The Devil Inside: Watching Rosemary’s Baby in the Age of #MeToo.

What’s coming up on the CineSavant threat board? We’re looking at reviews of Paul Mazursky’s Next Stop Greenwich Village, Norman Lear’s Cold Turkey, William Wyler’s The Big Country, Vincente Minnelli’s Designing Women and Two Weeks in Another Town, Robert Bresson’s Au Hasard Balthazar, Michael Schlesinger’s The Misadventures of Biffle and Shooster and probably a lot more. Summer is here but we’ll try to keep up the pace. And I hope to sneak in a few retro titles, and things that I missed.

Thanks for reading! — Glenn Erickson
