The Reader: 18 November

A relentlessly belated post, and so it only makes sense to start with an outdated link to a Halloween horror-themed blog-a-thon. You could spend the next couple weeks catching up with this exhaustive collection of articles on Italian horror films, or at least scan them for viewing ideas. From one filmmaker to another: Michael Powell writes to Martin Scorsese about the GOODFELLAS script, at Letters of Note.

Glenn Kenny's Blu-Ray Consumer Guide is recommended for anyone who can play US Blu-Rays and doesn't mind being tempted into spending hundreds of dollars. For additional Christmas shopping ideas, the New York Times also has a guide to holiday releases.

Also of note at the NYT: A.O. Scott interviews Robert De Niro, at length.

At Flavorwire, Jason Bailey consolidates thoughts on 20 filmmakers on what motivates them to make films.

At MUBI, a lengthy consideration of the Vancouver International Film Festival. And closer to home, NZFF film director Bill Gosden chimes in on Vancouver as well.

What's up with Korean filmmakers making films for American audiences? Solvej Schou at EW digs in to the upcoming films by Bong, Kim, and Park.

A fantastic profile of Jacques Audiard, director of READ MY LIPS, THE BEAT MY HEART SKIPPED, A PROPHET, and the upcoming RUST AND BONE, provided to the Telegraph by Robbie Collin.
