    EPISODE #3 (3.18.11 - 3.24.11): Is "Look of the Week" better than all the shows it copies? Stanford University's David Giovacchini identifies trends in the films of Abbas Kiarostami, pointing out that CERTIFIED COPY is a copy of at least two early--and largely unseen--films by the renowned Iranian director; Veronika Ferdman of Slant Magazine offers a more personal take on CERTIFIED COPY; while discussing DEAD-END DRIVE-IN, Sara's VHS Pajama Party selection, Walter von Tagen theorizes about the beginning of Nicole Kidman's acting career and leads our host to the discovery of "Gunk Sheeple;" blink and you'll miss the popular Letter to an Unknown Director. ABOUT "LOOK OF THE WEEK": Bay Area film critic, trade journal editor and film studies teacher Sara Vizcarrondo brings her inimitable style and insider knowledge to "Look of the Week," a half-hour show featuring discussions of current theatrical releases, film festivals, retrospectives, the Criterion Collection, Netflix Instant, VHS oddities and stray tidbits about "the biz." Come for the infotainment, stay for the theme song! ("I'm an accordion," Sara insists.) To learn about sponsorship opportunities, please visit www.mizviz.net.
