While We Wait for Carol...

The natives are growing restless.

Greetings friends.Chris here,the newest member of Team Experience.Like I'm assuming many of you,I live far away from the lucky 16 theatres currently housing Todd Haynes' return to the big screen.SoI'm happy with even the slightest shiftthat bringsCarol's glacial release to my local screens.Non-US readers have an even longer wait.We've all become the human embodiment of that inescapable Rooney Mara image.

It's worth noting amid all our impatience the cautionary tale told this year by the likes ofSteve JobsandThe Diary of a Teenage Girl: going too wide too soon can result in a quick crash and burn in this increasingly crowded marketplace.So let's take a breather and feel grateful thatCarolhas a distributor like The Weinstein Co.focused on reaching a passionate audience,even if it means waiting longer than we want.After all,the film is still the film no matter when we see it.

Meanwhile,I've got 10 fun homework assignments to keep you occupied while you wait...

1.Read Patricia Highsmith's novel (also published asThe Price of Salt).The film is not a page-to-page adaptation,so some surprises will still be ahead - including more of our titular love interest!

2.Rewatch the Todd Haynes filmography!I'll do the leg work for you:Velvet Goldmineis availble on Netflix Instant,PoisonandI'm Not Thereon Amazon Prime...
