Briefly Breaking the Silence

Yes, it's been a long time between drinks, as the old joke goes. (Don't ask, it's not that funny a joke.)
And this hardly constitutes much of a post, but I'll draw your attention to my review of Julian Schnabel's latest, Lou Reed's Berlin, currently on display at Film Forum.

Also, allow me to urge youj to make a trip to the Jewish Museum to see the short film by Myra Zack, "Mother Economy," certainly one of the best Jewish-themed films of 2008. My review will run in Jewish Week shortly and I'll add a link to it when it does.
