I’ve heard that the French critic Serge Daney would write letters to movies he liked, and that seems appropriate in this case, as I’ve enjoyed your company as if you were a friend. Like some of your most distinguished relatives—Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief (1955), Donen’s Charade (1963), Edwards’s The Party (1968)—you’ve cheered me up when I’ve been depressed, and you’ve often helped me fall asleep at night. You’ve spent a lot of time in my apartment, but tomorrow I’ll get to visit you in a movie theater (at DOC Films at 7 PM), your rightful home. I’ll try to bring a group, as I know you thrive in social situations.
