Wish I could have written more this week, but I had the unusual opportunity to participate in a staged reading of a play called The Dogs of Pripyat by Leah Napolin. The play concerns the Chernobyl nuclear accident in 1986 and is told from the point of view of the dogs left behind when citizens were forced to evacuate. I know it sounds like a downer, but the script is actually quite funny and moving and the reading was a sucess. (It would be hard to stage though.)
So, I loved Little Miss Sunshine and will be posting a review soon. The film's website has some of the more unusual links I've seen, including a blog about Proust (inspired by Steve Carell's gay suicidal Proust scholar), a link to the Converse shoe site, and a Wikipedia entry. Sure they're all designed for promotion, but at least someone put some thought into the site.
