All the big year-end films but three are either currently screening or will start to screen in a week or so. Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, The White Countess, Casanova, The Producers (starting on or about 11.18), Syriana, Memoirs of a Geisha, Narnia, Match Point, et. al. The last to be considered will be Terrence Malick’s The New World (there’s an Academy screening set for 11.26), Peter Jackson’s King Kong and Steven Spielberg’s Munich (both in very early December). It’s flurry time, screening-conflict time, dog-and-pony-show time.
