Poor Spike Lee. Just as I predicted, Lincoln Center’s Film Society has postponed the Chaplin Awards til the fall. Really, September will be the busiest month in history.
The Film Society has also cancelled their New Directors/New Films program. This might be a good time anyway for a cleaning and refurbishing of the Walter Reade Theater. It’s like a Petri dish in there.
My guess now is they’ll make the Chaplin Awards part of the New York Film Festival at the end of September. It makes more sense anyway.
Now Spike can only wait and see if the Cannes Film Festival is cancelled. He’s the head of the jury this year. Oy vey.
