Dave Kehr of The New York Times reviews "Reel Baseball: Film of the Silent Era."  I received this two-disk set on Netflix yesterday. 


Virginia Heffernan reviews "Brando" a two-part series which premieres on TCB beginning tonight.  "This film could use a skeptic, though it’s eventually to be commended for refraining from bashing Brando too hard for his obvious personal failings. In the end there’s something direct, simple and thorough about “Brando.” With the leading man gone, the film seems to come with remarkably little baggage and few strings. The same probably cannot be said about any production involving Brando when he lived."

Susan King of the LA Times interviews several of the people who participated in the documentary.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
