‘Anatomy of a Scene’ takes you behind the camera

After last week’s double shot of sad news, let’s hope for a slow news week this week. So far, so good . . . so I thought I’d point you toward the New York Times’ “Anatomy of a Scene” feature, which is always good fun. For some time now, the NYT movies staff has been inviting film directors to narrate a brief segment (perhaps two to four minutes) of their latest film, filling in the background info and letting us step into their minds for a minute. Movies featured in the last few weeks include “The One I Love” (opening here this Friday), “Get On Up,” “A Most Wanted Man,” “I Origins,” “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” and many more. Check it out here, and may you have a peaceful and happy Monday.
