The Golden Compass: Movie Notes Thataway

Many readers likely went to see the movie "The Golden Compass" this weekend. For the most thorough roundup of articles, interviews, and intelligent opinions on the film, the book and its author, Philip Pullman, you should visit Monica Edinger's blog, Educating Alice. Look for the posts labelled "Waiting for Lyra" and "The Golden Compass Movie."

Meanwhile, in its December 10th issue, The New Yorker chose to run a capsule review in the Goings On About Town section instead of a longer piece in the back of the magazine by either David Denby or Anthony Lane, the main film critics. Interesting, yes?

Yes and no. The movie isn't very good.
