Sasha Stone and I had an okay time on the phone today…mostly. It all started with my telling her about Richard Linklater‘s Bernie, which I really liked after seeing it the second time last week. But I wasn’t getting through. I tried but I couldn’t explain it right. Which is a way of saying that Bernie, a perfectly made film that doesn’t fit into any one category, is probably toast.

Then we talked about the Cannes lineup, and in so doing revealed that we’ve read very little so far and haven’t thought much about the selections. But it was a start.

Here’s a stand-alone mp3 link.
