Biographical and Beyond: An Evening with David Thomson, Featuring Birth

Praised as the finest reference book ever written about movies, David Thomson's The New Biographical Dictionary of Film is its author's idiosyncratic, indispensible, and deeply addictive indexing of the key players in the history of moving pictures, from Abbott and Costello to Catherine Zeta-Jones. On the eve of the publication of the revised and expanded Fifth Edition, we have invited Thomson (himself a former member of the NYFF selection committee) to discuss his work, his writing process, and to present a film of his choosing. His selection is Birth (2004), director Jonathan Glazer's metaphysical thriller starring Nicole Kidman as a woman who becomes convinced that a 10-year-old boy is the reincarnation of her late husband. Thomson has hailed the film as a neglected masterpiece. Post-screening discussion with David Thomson and Film Society Associate Program Director Scott Foundas, followed by book-signing in the Frieda and Roy Furman Gallery.

Will someone make sure that the mad people on their E! board or other boards have medics/psychs waiting by, please.....this will cause them some damage, I think, lol.

David Thomson vs Mimosa, I wonder whose voice is more prominent? lol.

Mimosa is fixated on Nicole Kidman but David Thomson has his own issues. He is the writer of a Kidman book that goes far beyond the facts and film criticism. Some would say he is too much of a fan of Nicole. You'd have to look at the book to decide. I may agree that Birth is an extremely underrated film but I don't agree with how he chose to write a "biography". Luckily the date for the screening coincides with filming for Trespass. It is extremely doubtful Nicole would be there even if she was free.

Bottom line, Thomson put personal thoughts that don't belong in a biography; Mimosa is mentally unstable if what she says she does on E! is actually the truth.
