Saul Leiter, secret genius photographer of the East Village, turned 90 this year, yet his work is just now achieving widespread recognition — most recently in the form of In No Great Hurry, a documentary playing this week at the Doc NYC Festival.
These upcoming screenings have us Reel Psyched.
The year 2000 marked the first time Brits elected a Mayor of London (not to be confused with the Lord Mayor of the City of London). In the running was Malcolm McLaren, best known as the manager and oft-disputed mastermind behind the Sex Pistols (he also managed the New York Dolls, Bow Wow Wow, had a solo career, and was on a couple of reality shows).
In “Malcolm McLaren: Not For Sale” — featured in Wednesday’s “New Filmmakers: Films About Music” program at Anthology –Nancy Cohen and Andy Lee attempt to track down and interview McLaren about his run for mayor. He misses a few meetings with the film crew but they catch up with him eventually.
