If the Criterion Collection were Populist in Spirit

Check out these “Fake Criterions,” which somebody has cleverly concocted with their computerized photo-editing skills: http://fakecriterions.tumblr.com/. My favorite (and Clair’s) is “Ernest Goes to Jail,” but they are each humorous in their own way.

    Did Sidney Poitier really make “Ghost Dad”?

    Apparently so…which is weird. According to wikipedia, Poitier and Bill Cosby had an ongoing collaborative relationship in the 1970s and 1980s. “Ghost Dad,” which appeared in 1990, was Poitier’s final directing effort, coming on the heels of such films as “A Piece of the Action” (1977, which starred both Poitier and Cosby) and “Stir Crazy” (1980, which starred Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor). Needless to say, few have remembered these films, which, while still comedies, were perhaps less captivating for the modern mind as “Ghost Dad,” Poitier’s directorial masterpiece.
