Marshall Fine: Live from the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival: Sunday, June 30

People occasionally ask me how I choose the films I see at a film festival. There’s a long, complicated answer to that but let’s go with a short one: Sometimes the films pick me.

Which happened Sunday at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. It’s how I came to see a strangely engaging (and badly titled) German film, Love Steaks.

Apple files application for ‘iWatch’ trademark in Japan

Apple files application to register 'iWatch' trademark in Japan

Evidence is mounting that Apple might out a smartwatch in the near future after Yahoo Japan noticed that the company applied for the “iWatch” trademark in Japan on June 3rd. Our Japanese editor noticed that several other companies have applied for that term as well, though this one (released on June 27th) is from Apple Inc. of Cupertino. That follows a patent application from Apple we saw earlier in the year for a watch-like AMOLED device that proposed a slap bracelet, kinetic energy charger and “end-detection” user sensor, among other features. In addition, other rumors from Bloomberg back in February suggested that 100 Apple employees were working on a smartwatch of some kind. If we don’t see a device after all that, Cupertino’s gone to a heck of a lot of trouble for nothing. Check after the break for a screen grab (in Japanese) of the trademark application.

Knicks, Raptors Trade Would Send Andrea Bargnani To New York (IF It Gets Approved): REPORT

The New York Knicks are reportedly attempting to follow the Brooklyn Nets’ reported acquisition of future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce with a move for a former first overall NBA Draft selection.

Is it LeBron James? Nope. John Wall? Not quite. What about Derrick Rose? He’s not available either.

The Knicks were negotiating a deal with the Toronto Raptors on Sunday that would bring Andrea Bargnani to New York, as first reported by The New York Times. The 7′ Italian forward has not fulfilled his potential in Toronto since being taken with the No. 1 overall selection in the 2006 NBA Draft. In his seven seasons with the Raptors, Bargnani has career per-game averages of 15.2 points and 4.8 rebounds.
