Serious Film: Trapped in the Green Valley

The test of time is absolutely merciless when it comes to putting films in their place. Not winning gets everybody focused on how deserving they are. An ill-timed win accentuates the flaws in a film or performance for decades to come

Thanks, Carrie. I'm quite a movie son started an Underground Film Festival here a few years ago, so my interest has spawned quite a bit of movie-loving in my family. Every fall now, he brings independent movies from around the world here to be shown in a local small theater....often premiering them.

Wow Lois, that's great! I'm also a movie lover, but can't go to theaters anymore because I can't sit for that long. I have to view at home on TV.

Thanks Carrie for the post and link to the blog piece by Michael Cusumano. Quite interesting and informative read and I like his take on how most of the winners will be regarded. Read and noted.

TY Carrie. I'm a movie-lover too. Some years I've agreed with the Oskar choices and sometimes I haven't. The way movies affect us is so subjective. However, I've watched Citizen Kane 3X over the years and I still don't care for it.

I would disagree with the author of this article, "Gentleman's Agreement" may not have been the best of all movies, but it dared to go where few would.

Ever noticed that when women win the Oscar, they all but disappear from view?

The Fort Lee Historical Society asks you to sign this petition which will be delivered to the Fort Lee Mayor & Council and Fort Lee Zoning Board of Adjustment to Save the historic Rambo's Saloon building on 2423 First Street. This building, which dates back to the Civil War era, was used in the early 20th century as a film location, dressing room area, and meeting place for many of the early film pioneers and studios when Fort Lee was the first American film town. DW Griffth, Mary Pickford, Lionel Barrymore, Mack Sennett and many other film pioneers developed the American film industry in their work on this property in this structure. This is the most important surviving building in the Borough of Fort Lee that was used during Fort Lee's days as the first American film town and this building helped give birth to the American film industry.
