We're a little slow on content upload this week (new entries coming tomorrow), so I wanted to share two recent web postings that have stoked my interest:
First, Glenn Kenny of Some Came Running has written a terrific response to several end-of-summer, state-of-the-art doomsaying articles. It's titled “Young and dumb versus old and in the way”, and as befits Glenn it's an illuminating mix of autobiography and critical observation.
Second, a hearty welcome to video essay land for the Film Freak Central crew. Contributor Jefferson Robbins has just posted a tribute to Mad Men in anticipation of its premiere this Sunday. I've embedded the video below the jump, but be sure to head on over to the Film Freak blog itself and let Jefferson know your thoughts.
