Only when I breathe: David Bordwell in Hong Kong

The illustrious and industrious David Bordwell has begun reporting from the Hong Kong Film Festival ("Dragons at your doorstep"), where the weather appears to be well-suited to movie-watching:

Once more, Hong Kong. Still a spellbinding place, although the municipality is doing whatever it can to force pedestrians underground and surrender the streets to cars. Even a dragon has to wait for the pedestrian light. And now, thanks to the sandstorms in China, the air is thick with pollution. I have taken defensive measures. My students probably wished I'd worn one of these more often.

Much more festival news and distinctively Bordwellian imagery here.
