Rockin’ the newsprint at Oly’s end


Daily Mail

Olympic organizers papered the stage of the closing ceremonies Sunday with larger than life newsprint, not only covering the stage and various props, but also clothing.

Some blokes named William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens got bylines!


‘Vertigo’ Unseats ‘Citizen Kane’ ? I don’t think so.


Sight & Sound’s once-per-decade poll of international film critics knocks “Citizen Kane” from the top of the list — where it’s rightly been for the last 50 years.

They picked Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” as “the greatest movie of all time.”

Here’s the poll results:

The Critics’ Top 10 Greatest Films of All Time
“Vertigo” (Hitchcock, 1958)
“Citizen Kane” (Welles, 1941)
“Tokyo Story” (Yasujiro Ozu, 1953)
“La Règle du jeu” (Jean Renoir, 1939)
“Sunrise: a Song for Two Humans” (F.W. Murnau, 1927)
“2001: A Space Odyssey” (Stanley Kubrick, 1968)
“The Searchers” (John Ford, 1956)
“Man with a Movie Camera” (Vertov, 1929)
“The Passion of Joan of Arc” (Dreyer, 1927)
“8 ½” (Federico Fellini, 1963)

Looks like we’ve got another 10 years to convince the critics to return Orson back to the top of the heap.
