Re: Recently Watched Films 2021

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/ByY_M5mCEAAOSF4.jpg Natalia Yu, I am Katya Golubeva , 2016 Fine hour-long documentary on the enigmatic and wondrously beautiful (well, that's just, my opinion, man) Ekaterina Golubeva. A timely reminder to rewatch all those Leos Carax films again, and not only the one sh...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2021

Oh god, fuck this awful month - zero energy for much more than work (and hardly enough for that even), but it's coming back to me. Meanwhile, I've watched all of Seinfeld three times these last twelve months. A tonic, that. I have managed to watch and write about this though: https://arcofilms.com/w...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

I'm slowly but surely ploughing through the complete Ballard short stories - an enormous book - but none of them is a particularly pleasant read. Not a criticism, that - it's just his style, that dry, unforgiving prose, with characters who are rarely sympathetic, and often downright glacial. I thou...

Can't wait to read what you think of Tommy or Lisztomania or The Devils ! Oh, I just LOVE Peter Maxwell Davies' music in The Devils ! I remember, pre-Discogs days, going on the hunt for that recording, coming up with nothing. Still true, I fear. That really is a soundtrack begging to be issued, alo...

Splendid write-up - funny, I remember enjoying The Tenant last time we saw it (which was a loooong time ago). I should try again.
