Denis Lavant, Juliette Binoche: Les amants du Pont-Neuf

My piece for the Scarecrow blog this week, and etc.

Les amants du Pont-Neuf. “Guess what? It’s a landmark of French cinema.”

I’ve got a new episode of “The Music and the Movies” this week, this one devoted to the accordion in film music. Listen without prejudice, and embrace this much-maligned instrument in a show that travels from Leos Carax to Werner Herzog to Lawrence Welk.

Still running: The M&M episode on Quincy Jones’ film music.

At my other website, What a Feeling!, we have two vintage 1980s reviews posted this week: David Mamet’s Things Change, with Don Ameche and Joe Mantegna in a mob comedy; and Frank Kerr’s True Blood, a crime thing with Jeff Fahey, Chad Lowe, and Billy Drago.
