I’m not sure how we missed this, but YouTube user keesvdijkhuizen has been creating film compilations every month as part of a yearlong series, tackling contemporary auteurs like Sofia Coppola and David Fincher. The most recent of these compilations is for, naturally, the films of Wes Anderson.

David O. Russell Has Seen The Royal Tenenbaums Over 50 Times

Museum of the Moving Image recently did a retrospective of director David O. Russell’s work to celebrate the release of his fifth film The Fighter, for which he’s nominated for an Academy Award. To kick off the celebration, Russell did a live discussion with friend and sometime collaborator Spike Jonze. Russell offhandedly mentioned The Royal Tenenbaums and was prodded by Jonze to talk about the film, which as you’ll hear Russell is quite fond of. As the clip begins, Russell is talking about showing his first film Spanking The Monkey to his son.

It’s an interesting hour-long talk if you’re a fan of Russell’s work. You can listen to and download the full recording at the Moving Image Source and read a report on the event, including an explanation for an interruption midway through, at The Playlist.
