I'm off to the Conference on World Affairs in Boulder, CO, (April 7 - 11) for my favorite week of the year. This week, Monday through Friday for two hours each day, I'll be leading a discussion with the audience as we go through a great movie together, shot by shot. Last year it was "Chinatown." This year you'll be shocked to learn that I've picked "No Country for Old Men." Complete schedule here. My schedule of panels, screenings, etc., here. I'll be blogging when I can throughout the week. Other panels I'm on concern abortion in popular culture, the aesthetics of brutality, train-wreck celebrities, and digital acting. I can't wait to see what we come up with!
