Daily Briefing. RS 30 + PM's 100 + the 70s

For Reverse Shot's 30th symposium (congrats!), contributors "consider at length the movie that they believe to be the worst in a single filmmaker's career." So far: Jeff Reichert on Woody Allen's Anything Else (2003), Leah Churner on Otto Preminger's Skidoo (1968) and Leo Goldsmith on Ingmar Bergman's The Touch (1971) … PopMatters wraps its "100 Essential Directors" series … Kristin Thompson on DW Griffith's devices … Max Goldberg previews The Outsiders: New Hollywood Cinema in the Seventies, running at the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley through October 27; related reads: Andy McCarthy on Larry Cohen's The Private Files of J Edgar Hoover (1977), Sam Wasson (Paul on Mazursky) on three Mazurskys and Peter Tonguette (The Films of James Bridges) on The China Syndrome (1979).
