There’s a new Forgotten By Fox up at MUBI — a week late, we’ll have to pick up the slack at some point — which explores what happens when the genius of the system — Darryl F. Zanuck and underlings — meets an actual, living genius, in the person of Jean Renoir.

Meanwhile, at The Chiseler, Daniel Riccuito interviews Jonathan Rosenbaum about precodes and noir, and at Unattended Articles Simon Kane is performing all of Shakespeare, solo. You’ll learn plenty from the performances but also the thinking behind them. My own lockdown projects, which include watching a lot of Warren William films, kind of pale in comparison, or even without comparison.
