Movie Meter: Tina Fey’s This is Where I Leave You is a Tremendous Waste of Comic Firepower

SEE IT NOW!

1. The Conformist: A most welcome re-release of Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1970 classic about a cowardly Italian man in 1930’s Italy, who agrees to perform an assassination for the Fascist cause, even though the intended victim is his own former college professor. The film is known for its fiery political commentary—not for nothing does the film’s title suggest a complete weakness of moral character in the face of fashionable political movements—but also for its stunning production values, from the costumes and set design to the extraordinary cinematography by Vittorio Storaro. A chance to see the fully-restored version (the original U.S. print was cut by five crucial minutes) on the big screen is a huge treat for cinephiles everywhere. Playing at Ritz at the Bourse. Rotten Tomatoes Score: 100%

Viewers Wanted Tina Fey, Not Colbert, for Late Show

Last week CBS dropped a bomb on us when it announced out of the blue that Stephen Colbert will take over for David Letterman when he leaves the Late Show in 2015. Not a terrible choice (though we will miss our Colbert Report), but, if you believe a new set of stats from Keyhole, he wouldn’t have been the first choice of viewers. They wanted Tina Fey.
