Portrait of a Lady on Fire
Portrait of a Lady on Fire is its own, wondrous, magnificent thing.
I recently participated in a telephone discussion about "No Country For Old Men," moderated by Elvis Mitchell, with Glenn Kenny (whose "A Ghost And A Dream: Notes on the final quarter of 'No Country for Old Men'" is essential stuff -- and the place from which I stole this key image from the movie, too), Jen Yamato from RottenTomatoes.com and Harry Knowles from "Ain't-It-Cool-News." The conversation lasted more than an hour and I enjoyed hearing everybody's takes on the movie. It's now available online as an "exclusive podcast" (in edited form, I assume) on the official "NCFOM" web site: here.
