Philip Lopate's recently-published landmark collection of film criticism is being celebrated at the Pacific Film Archives where Lapote—a long time champion of the work of Mikio Naruse—will introduce a screening of Wife! Be Like A Rose! on Sunday, April 9, 2006 at 3:00 pm.
Then on Wednesday, April 12, at 7:30 p.m. Lapote will have a chat with David Thomson at Codys Books on Telegraph in Berkeley. Good chance to ask Thomson some Angie Dickinson questions before the next big blogathon!
Via Girish, Andrew Horbal has a great overview of the critical response to Lapote's latest. Andrew also points to James Marcus' House of Mirth interview with Lapote and Marcus' review of the book for Newsday.com.
