Let's take a look at Sidney Lumet. Still reeling from a Network weekend. Not to use too broad of a brushstroke, but the 90s were kind of hard on Sid. Maybe this latest with Vin Diesel will turn his fortunes around. Or is that an oxymoron: who could be more fortunate than someone directing Vin Diesel? David Twohy, for example, but he'll be on the next issue of Auteur Watch.
In the meantime, it's about 1 1/2 hours until The Daily Show / Colbert Report superchunk. Gotta run!!
