we're here to make you think about death and get sad and stuff

I'm so glad I heeded Golamco's tweet and saw Scott Pilgrim vs. the World on the big screen. While it seems constantly in danger of being stolen by every single actor in it, you probably remember Kieran Culkin as the hero's roommate. I don't know if he'll ever be enticed back to Off-Broadway after this, but not long ago he won an Obie for his role in Gina Gionfriddo's fascinating play After Ashley. Here's an article I wrote at the time for The Brooklyn Rail.

(Mr. Culkin and I, as it happens, were both handed Obie awards by Stockard Channing on the same evening. Macaulay was there too. Wearing lipstick.)
