A few years ago, I posted around these parts about the filmmaker Michael Almereyda, who’s made a few films of which I’m pretty fond. What got my attention at the time was his film Happy Here and Now, which brought together low-key science fiction and a pre-Katrina New Orleans. Apparently, he has an adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s novella “Five Fucks” in the works, under the title Tonight at Noon — something that definitely has my interest piqued.
In the works the last time I blogged about Almereyda was a film called New Orleans Mon Amour. From reading this article, it sounds like it’s done, and can be seen via iTunes, or the streaming services offered by Amazon and Netflix. (Amazon will also burn a DVD-R of it for $19.99.) All of which has me curious to see whether anyone out there has seen it — the one review I could find was on iTunes, and was on the brief side.
