Raising Victor Vargas Tonight, I'm seeing Raising Victor Vargas, the opening night selection of the New Directors/New Films Festival. I'm excited for a couple reasons: It's from a director my age, Peter Sollett (in fact, my friends graduated from NYU Tisch with him; I'm obviously growing up because I'm not so jealous as I am impressed); it's a great introduction to new films; and it's at Lincoln Center, so close to home.
