Joanna Knows Where She's Going

So we get to that night of the month where we have another Guest Programmer. This month's programmer is actress Joanna Going, whose credits include such diverse fare as the 1994 Wyatt Earp and Terrence Malick's pretentious The Tree of Life. She selected four of her favorite movies and sat down with Ben Mankiewicz to discuss them. Those movies are airing tonight:

The Black Stallion at 8:00 PM, a story about a boy (Kelly Reno) and his horse;
Wings of Desire at 10:15 PM, Wim Wenders' movie about angels over Berlin that I didn't particularly care for;
Day For Night at 12:45 AM, François Truffaut's delightful movie about moviemaking; and
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf at 3:00 AM, which has Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton arguing and arguing and arguing. I've always found this tough to sit through due to the nature of the material.
