The newest issue of Reverse Shot consists mainly of "Take One," a clever symposium in which the writers each approach a film by way of a single shot. As Michael Koresky and Jeff Reichert write in their introduction, "Itâ€™s easy to take a film and view it through a lens proscribed by the Reverse Shot editorial team, perhaps less easy to view a work through a small portion of the terms it sets forward for itself." The film that leapt into our mind when we read this was "Mulholland Drive," which Michael Joshua Rowin does actually write about, though he chooses a different scene than we would have â€” we had in mind the moment, dream sequence done, in which the limo taking Naomi Watts‘ Diane to the engagement party for Laura Harring‘s Camilla stops in the hills, and Camilla appears to lead Diane up to the house. It’s a shot with as much magic and mystery as anything in the semi-fantasy that consumed the first two-thirds of the film, and it sours so suddenly. Anyway, there’s also James Crawford‘s interview with "13 (Tzameti)"‘s GÃ©la Babluani, Nick Pinkerton‘s interview with Robert Altman, a slew of theatrical and DVD reviews, and James Crawford and Jeannette Catsoulis playing Shot/Reverse Shot with "A Scanner Darkly."
