I ♥ In the Heat of the Night (and Norman Jewison)
Thanks to Michael Gibbons of the Film Society of Lincoln Center for allowing me to wax nostalgic in a blog posting tied to the Film Society's Friday screening of In the Heat of the Night, a movie that made me want to become a movie critic. Of course, the last time I got so emotional about Norman Jewison's masterwork, some folks felt compelled to criticize me as too fulsome and, ahem, long-winded. Such is life. My feeling is, if you're too busy trying to sound cool and look dignified while you're expressing your love, it ain't really love at all.
