Some Sunday Reading

Here are a few film articles from various papers around the country:

Hayao Miyazaki is a visonary Japanese filmmaker whose animated works include PRINCESS MONONOKE (1997), SPIRITED AWAY, the 2003 Oscar winner for best animated feature, HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE, currently in theaters. This article provides a great introduction for those unfamiliar with his work and contains a link to a very thorough Miyazaki fan site.

Miranda July is a multi-talented artist/writer/filmmaker whose first feature film ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW has won awards at the most recent Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals. This article provides a nice biography of the artist.

Snoop Dogg stars in THE L.A. RIOT SPECTACULAR, a new film by Marc Klasfeld that parodies the 1992 L.A. riots following the Rodney King beating verdict. This article explores the question: has enough time passed for audiences to accept the riots played for laughs?
