entry arrow1:00 AM | The Sweetness of Emile Ardolino



There is a vulnerable sweetness and a hard-earned sentimentality in Emile Ardolino's movies that I think are the very reasons why they have become classics of popular film. That, plus they are such a fantastic mix of film and music and dance. (That "Hungry Eyes" sequence in Dirty Dancing still gets me after all these years.) Oh, we remember the movies so well -- Chances Are, Sister Act. Three Men and a Baby, Dirty Dancing, The Nutcracker -- but unfortunately we don't remember the late filmmaker behind them as much. I find it sad. (He died of complications from AIDS in 1993.)
