Caught the last part of The Hot Rock today. I’ve seen it several times. What a cast: Mostel, Redford, George Segal, Ron Leibman, Moses Gunn. Terrific

IIRC it's Donald Westlake via Bill Goldman.   Hard to beat that combination.   And Peter Yates was a pretty good director.

As a kid in Indiana in the late 1970s, I got hipped to a lot of good music by Creem Magazine. My girlfriend and I watched this excellent documentary last night—highly recommended for anybody interested in the music and music journalism of that era:

Saw the re-release of Inception in the theatre two weeks ago.  Only 4 of us in there, and the tickets were only $5!  I will have to find a mask that doesn't fog up my glasses though...

Probably will see Tenet this upcoming weekend.  Expecting somewhat larger crowds, but probably still not up to the 35% capacity limit.

Theatres are closed for the foreseeable future in NJ so I’m wondering how seating worked. I assume that at least every other seat is closed off but what about seats in the row in front of and behind you. I also assume they are numbered seats.

I don't know if it is the same everywhere, but here, they sell reserved seats (in pairs, though you can order just one ticket) and then the entire row in front and behind are blocked off.  Then there are three or four seats left vacant until the next available pair, on both sides.  I didn't calculate, but at this theatre, max. capacity is probably closer to 15%, not 35%, with all the blocked off seats.  This could be an issue this weekend, but if it is too crowded, we obviously won't go (or even be let in).

It is fair to say, I am only considering going (to the movies and also to the gym) because community spread is pretty low in Toronto, though edging up very slightly.  In states where there are still thousands of new cases a day, it would be very foolish to go.

Our governor has been very cautious so no gyms or movie theatres.

Just saw Tenet in the theatre.  6 of us, including my son.  It felt pretty safe, and we were well spread out.  Still thinking it through, but there seem to be a handful of huge plot holes.  I guess that's always the case with movies that involve time travel or time inversion in this case.  Still, the effects were pretty cool and probably worth catching on the big screen if you can...

Theatres are scheduled to reopen in NJ later this week but at no more than 40% capacity.

I generally don't go see films at TIFF during the festival itself, though I sometimes go to see films at TIFF Lightbox after the festival is over.  A couple caught my eye this time around, with Night of the Kings/La Nuit des Rois by Philippe Lacôte probably being the most interesting.  However, it is impossible to get in-person tickets, and the streaming costs $19, which seems on the high side.

I'll wait around and see if it gets picked by another streaming service at some point.

The next film I am likely to see in person is the new Wes Anderson, The French Dispatch, which opens in about a month.

I watched this once before several weeks ago and then again this weekend. It's a good one.
