A P & P vacation — and, the charms of “Midnight in Paris”

After wrapping up a few loose SIFF ends this weekend, I’m out of here for a week. You can talk among yourself. (I’ll give you a topic: SIFF — Why can’t it be shorter and more selective? In an economy when all of us are dealing with fewer resources, why doesn’t the festival trim off a week and concentrate on presenting its very best?)
But before I disappear, just a word on Woody Allen’s absolutely charming “Midnight in Paris,” which has quickly proved to be his most popular film in years and could very well surpass his all-time box office champ (“Hannah and Her Sisters”). I’ve already seen it twice, and both times became utterly lost in it — and both times remembered another midnight-in-Paris Allen moment, on the banks of the Seine. I suspect I’ve posted this clip before — it’s one of my favorite movie moments ever — but it’s been a while, so here are Woody and Goldie Hawn, making movie-musical magic with “I’m Thru With Love.”

Why are there so few genuinely romantic movies out there? Anyway, if you’re at all inclined, do see “Midnight in Paris” — and have a lovely, summery week. Sorry that I’ll miss “The Green Lantern” — you’ll tell me all about it, won’t you? — but I’ll be back Monday the 20th; see you then.
