The new issue (#12) of the film journal La Furia Umana is out; it’s a special issue on Jerry Lewis! There are 23 articles (!!!) on Jerry, including my new piece on his late masterpiece Smorgasbord (aka Cracking Up). (Besides the Jerry Lewis material, the issue also contains, among other goodies Kim Nicolini on Lars von Trier’s Melancholia, and something I haven’t read yet by the great film critic Nicole Brenez).
UPDATE: Since the pdf available from the Furia Umana site has formatting problems, a cleaner pdf of my article on Smorgasbord is available here.
In other news, my web posting about “work for hire” has been translated into Haitian Creole by John Obri — for which much thanks.
