Popcorn & Prejudice: A Movie Blog

One last blog for 2010: snow, Harry, Sally

I’m taking a few days off for the New Year’s holiday; back at my desk on Wednesday the 3rd, when we’ll ponder what this year’s big January turkeys at the multiplexes might be. Here’s something that caught my eye this morning: a beautiful short film called “Idiot with a Tripod,” shot by Jamie Stuart in Queens, New York, a couple of days ago during the region’s post-Christmas blizzard. Roger Ebert, praising the film, points out that it’s a direct homage to the 1929 silent, “The Man with a Movie Camera” (which you can watch on Ebert’s blog here); whether you’re a film historian or not, it’s a lovely way to spend three and a half minutes.

And, for New Year’s Eve, here’s the always-sweet ending of “When Harry Met Sally . . . ” Some friends of mine were saying the other day that they always watch this movie on New Year’s Eve, and I can think of a lot of worse ways to spend that evening. Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan have never been better onscreen (despite Ryan’s scary ’80s hair), and this last scene, at a crowded New Year’s party, should melt the hardest heart.

Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday — and good health, good fortune, and good movies in the new year. See you next week!
