The Knox Office on Air, Tetris, Simulant, and Riceboy Sleeps

On Friday I showed up on CBC Information Morning to do my biweekly movie column, The Knox Office.

This week I spoke with Portia Clark about how much I enjoyed Ben Affleck’s Air, which was a surprise since I went in pretty much expecting to not care about any of it. I also enjoyed Tetris, from Halifax screenwriter Noah Pink (blog review to come). Simulant has a few good ideas, but was way too derivative to earn my recommendation, while another Canadian film, Riceboy Sleeps, should not be missed (blog review coming soon for that one, too).
