The Summer issue of Cineaste, online and on sale

It's a bright sunny day here in Brooklyn, a good one to herald the new issue of Cineaste, on newsstands now and of course online. Interviews include Alex Gibney, on his Oscar-winning doc Taxi to the Dark Side and his new one on Hunter S. Thompson, Gonzo; German filmmaker Christian Petzold on the intriguing Yella, which I reviewed here a couple of weeks ago; and Ramin Bahrani, director of the excellent New York indies Man Push Cart (which is on the Sundance Channel this month) and Chop Shop, at Film Forum recently. On the lighter side, in the magazine and online, yours truly on the comedic legacy of W. C. Fields on DVD. Enjoy, my little chickadees. [David Hudson at Greencine did, and much obliged to him for all the issue coverage.]
