Last Friday night I stopped by Grape & Vine the restaurant/lounge in The Jade Hotel. The joint was jumpin' and packed. Why? The incredibly talented and dapper jazz musician Brian Newman was kicking off The Red Room Revue.
You can't take your eyes off The Master, neither Paul Thomas Anderson's new film nor Philip Seymour Hoffman in the role of Lancaster Dodd. Francine is tough material, but this tightly conceived near silent film is well worth seeing.
