Vincent Cassel, a chair, a mirror, and a camera

So, where have I been lately? At the movies. Just heading out in a few minutes to see Sofia Coppola’s “Somewhere,” which will be my sixth screening since Monday night. In a nutshell: “The Tourist” is disappointing but very pretty; Helen Mirren and Djimon Hounsou are terrific in “The Tempest”; “Blue Valentine” does not deserve an NC-17 rating (and didn’t get one, after appeal); Jeff Bridges is wonderful but often hard to understand in “True Grit”; and, in “Company Men,” it’s impossible to hear Tommy Lee Jones refer to another character as “my college roommate” and not think that Al Gore is about to appear.
But more on all of those later. For now, what you want to do is follow this link to a New York Times video gallery of actors — a series of short black-and-white videos in which some fine actors create a moment without dialogue. I haven’t had a chance to watch them all, and surely there’s much to enjoy there, but right now you simply must scroll down to Vincent Cassel (fourth row down, on the left) and watch a little magic. I just did, three times. It made me happy on this busy day. We’ll talk later.
