Tuesday Notebook

Notes about "Justified," a Cartier ad, "In the Land of Blood and Honey" and the Cleveland International Film Festival...

FX has renewed "Justified" for a fourth season and I say huzzah! The third season, which I have neglected to write about at greater length, has been really good -- and Neal McDonough has been a terrific villain. New episode tonight.
 

When the bride and I were watching TV on Sunday night, we were for a bit mesmerized by the Cartier ad above, not least because it seemed to go on forever -- which, in TV terms, proved to be about 3 1/2 minutes). It's an odd piece (it has at different points made me think it was an homage to "Tree of Life," a nod to "Hugo" or a trailer for "Wrath of the Titans") but visually splendid. And it made more sense on second viewing. So here it is:

 

The Cleveland Cinematheque has set a showing of "In the Land of Blood and Honey," the film directed by Angelina Jolie. It will be on March 19 at  7:15 p.m. Tickets (at the door only) will cost $9; Cinematheque members and CIA I.D. holders $7; ages 25 & under $5 (with proof of age). Free parking for filmgoers is available in the Institute of Art lot.

For more information, further information, call (216) 421-7450 or visit www.cia.edu/cinematheque..

The Cleveland International Film Festival is coming up and I have been looking at a few of the offerings -- and recommend the documentaries "Bill W.," "The Girls in the Band" and "Mexican Suitcase." They are worth seeing individually and collectively make a diverse consideration of culture and politics in the 1930s and since. For more about the fest, see www.clevelandfilm.org.
