Things to read for the weekend

There are days (most days, actually) when I just want to sit and read. For those having one of those days, here are a few (mostly) movie-related things I’ve encountered in the last few days, all worth reading:
— Steven Spielberg’s longtime cinematographer Janusz Kaminski talks to Vulture about eleven specific shots from Spielberg movies and how he got them.
— The Hollywood Reporter has a very entertaining review of the Lifetime channel’s “Liz and DIck” movie (you know, the one starring Lindsay Lohan), which it describes as half train wreck and half “Saturday Night Life” skit.” Sample line: “Drinking games were made for movies like this.”
— You hear a lot about all the great unproduced screenplays floating around Hollywood like dust mites; here’s a fascinating story on Slate.com about one that’s been buzzed about since 1978 — and finally might get filmed.
— The great Robert De Niro (who’s terrific in “The Silver Linings Playbook,” which opens in Seattle next Wednesday) talks to the New York Times about his long career.
— At The New Yorker: an excellent list of titles and synopses for upcoming “Star Wars” movies.
I’m taking a couple of pre-holiday-week days off; back on Wednesday, just in time for turkey day. Happy weekend!
