I’ve decided to pay to watch Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa tonight. I’m just not used to paying for new movies — it’s taken me a while to accept this as as occasional aspect of the new paradigm. (There’ s a freebie on Tuesday, 3.18, if I want it.) It seems as if Magnolia/Magnet, the U.S. distributor, is indecisive about whether or not to include Alpha Papa in the title. Pic is currently on Vudu, press day with director Declan Lowney next week (i.e., no Steve Coogan), opening theatrically on 4.4.
