Don't know what it says about me that the anime is the first thing I thought of with that sentence.

There's a great lineage of interesting Arsene Lupin adaptations that Sy now belongs to-- no idea why WB is still sitting on the best, their pre-code version with both Barrymores. That would make an incredible Criterion, but it's way too obscure for them to go for

Also, I had no idea there was a Netflix French series starring Gerard Depardieu and Benoît Magimel til reading about it in that article. Why is Netflix not recommending me things like this that I'd want to see instead of trying to get me to watch the Mindy Project?

I'm surprised by McHale's cancellation, I don't know anything about Wolf's show but I imagine it's a Daily Show/Full Frontal style. Netflix must be really tightening things up if a guy standing in front of a green screen for half an hour gets the axe after a season.

Maybe that kind of format just doesn't work as well for Netflix as it does with traditional cable.

Aside from new work by Jeremy Saulnier and Cary Joji Fukunaga, in the last month they've also released new films from Gareth Evans (of supremely enjoyable The Raid films), Nicole Holocfener and, most impressivley, Tamara Jenkins (The Savages being one of my favourite films in its year of release).

This, the new series from Mike Flanagan, and Alfonso Cuarón's Roma makes this a very exciting year, at least for me.

Also Paul Greengrass, whose 22 July came out last week and I watched last night. I was expecting a United 93-style reenactment of that day, but it was much more of a courtroom drama mixed with the personal story of one of the survivors. Overall I thought it was quite good. Of all of Greengrass' films, it reminded me most of Resurrected.

I must be blind because i can't seem to find the thread for it so i'm commenting here about the new season of Making A Murderer. I've never seen the equal of Kathleen Zellner single mindedness in print or film (fiction or non) as she absolutely scorches the earth in her quest (quest in a medieval sense) to free Avery from jail. The only person that comes to mind is The Terminator (1984) and that character was not human. Of course this only makes the Wisconsin penal community dig its heels in even further as this outsider is not so much making waves as tsunamis. The most riveting season of television this year by a mile.

I'm hearing that Sandler's latest stand-up special is very good

What's his standup like if you only know (and hate) his comedies and (sometimes like) his work on SNL?

A lot like the musical bits he'd do on SNL. Weirdly enough I've never heard his straight stand-up, but I remember stuff like the Hanukkah song played on alt-rock stations every Christmas.
