Perhaps more than any breakdown in the social order since
the L.A. riots of 1992, the recent London turmoil
has disrupted Hollywood's
business as usual.
A screening of a Sundance favorite at the Curzhon Soho
Cinema came to an abrupt end because of a power blackout, apparently due to the
rioting. Ironically, the film being screened was Steve James's "The
Interrupters," about volunteers in Chicago
who intervene to stop gang and other violence.
