Summer Reading

The Daily returns with recommendations for summertime reading.

David Hudson

With the spanking new redesign of the Notebook, the Daily returns after a rejuvenating summer break. Six weeks or so of head-clearing perspective have reminded me how much I actually do love doing this thing I do and nothing could make me more eager to get back to it than those lineups for Venice and Toronto.

Until Venice opens, the rounding up will remain relatively light. For now, though, here's more than a bit of summer reading for the waning days of the season, in order of appearance since my last entry: Assessments of this year's Cannes Film Festival dominate the latest issues of Cinema Scope and Film Comment; the current issue of the Brooklyn Rail features a collection of remembrances of Adolfas Mekas; Electric Sheep focuses on Andrei Tarkovsky; Filmmaker's new issue features this year's "25 New Faces of Independent Film"; The Parallax debuts as a downloadable PDF; then there's the bountiful Summer 2011 issue of Jump Cut; Film-Philosophy takes on phenomenology and psychoanalysis; and via Catherine Grant comes news of a new journal of film and screen media out of Ireland, Alphaville.
