Dear Faithful Readers, This edition of The Haber Review takes issue (pun intended?) with today’s NY Times. We have just returned from seeing “Man of the Year” starring Robin Williams. The Times panned this movie this morning. The Haber Review found it to be funny, involving and relevant. I guess if you don’t like Robin Williams, you shouldn’t bother with this movie. Otherwise, go see it. I thought it was clever and funny. The Times complained that it didn’t know what kind of movie it wanted to be: comedy, thriller, political movie. It’s all three and I think it works well together. I know some of you out there think I only see “esoteric movies that play below 14th Street”, but I laughed out loud several times at Robin Williams’ schtick. Since many of you probably won’t go see the movie, here’s an example of what I found funny: “politicians and diapers should both be changed frequently and for the same reason”. Lewis Black is in the film also and is quite funny as well. (As an aside, we have tickets to see Lewis Black perform in February; yes, Ken, I did manage to get tickets after all.) So, if any of you do go to see this movie, I’d be curious to know which reviewer you agreed with. Tomorrow night we’re seeing “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie”. I loved the original production of this play with Zoe Caldwell several years ago. The current production was also panned in the Times this past week. After tonight, I’m not feeling so badly about tomorrow night. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
