And its rarity obviously enhanced its cult status among those who had. But there's also a cult that's built up around Jack Smith himself, which increasingly seems to exist separately from his actual output. I went to a conference on him a couple of years ago and even that was largely just a lot of old East Village types trying to outdo each other with funny anecdotes about him. Either that or linking him to other cultural currents. But invariably it was about him rather than his work.

i wanted to answer him too but melly has left the building (he said temporarily, anyway)

watched lars von trier's medea which is an homage to carl theodor dreyer (it was his screenplay that "von" trier shot). i think it was made for tv, and the dvd looked horrible, not sure if it was a lousy transfer or that's how the original looked (washed out, fucked) but i have to say THE COMPOSITION OF THE SHOTS WAS AMAZING. incredible visual imagination on the part of lvt (or maybe he just ripped off dreyer). in any case-- YES, CINEMA. that is the fucking language of moving pictures. god damn i was blown away by something that looked like an old worn out and faded umax tape from a video archive. simply incredible.

 


 


 


i cant find my favorite shots on the internet but there were some incdebibe shots underwater and shots with projections behind it and such fucking visual poetry, it was incredible.

Have you seen Pasolini's version of Medea? That spoiled me from liking any other one. LVT's version is visually brilliant but Pasolini's is on another level altogether. Funnily enough Pasolini was as obsessed with Dreyer as LVT is but Pasolini for me transcended him while LVT's still just a fan. Only in comparison, I love LVT, but when he treads on Pasolini territory he gets put into sharp context. Like trying to do The Satyricon after Fellini.

i remember having watched it years ago. a lot of terracottas and mud buildings, i think. staged on a hillside?

my problem with pasolini has always been that he puts me to sleep. i walked out of the first movie i saw by him, the gospel according to st matthew-- maybe it got better later but what i watched reminded me of religious programming during catholic holidays in my childhood and i could suffer it no longer.

the only thing by him i ever saw completely was salÚ, and i only did it after extensive preparation and only by installments and i had to re-watch some parts. he's so slow he puts me to sleep every time. so, if i can guess, i probably fell asleep during his medea, which is why i have only the blurriest recollection of it.

antonioni's slowness somehow i can handle, but pasolini does me in every time. finishing salÚ was worth it, but it wasn't so much that i loved it, it's rather that it was a valuable educational experience on the psychology of power and domination.

also, i think pasolini was more writer than film guy-- or more theoretician even (wait, wasn't he a poet first?). the visual imagination i saw in LVT's "medea" shows the work of someone who is a filmmaker first and someone trying to make a point only second. in other words, seems to me pasolini dreamed in concepts and lvt dreams in pictures-- or maybe it was carl theodor dreyer who did and lvt just ripped him off. i need to see some CTD soon.

It was "American Warships", filmed aboard USS Iowa (BB61), and, OK, you all know me, and how I love ships. I'll get my coat and hat!

Bye-bye!

John Carpenter's Vampires. Made back in the 90's before the current crop of twilight and their wannabee. James Woods is a real sonnovabitch "C'mon, padre, I'll get you drunk and laid", and Sheryl Lee from Twin Peaks has a lead role as a whore turned vampire. I've liked this since I saw it in the theater and fpicked up a $1 DVD copy I found Sat.

i have a 42" panny plasma (they don't make them anymore) and a $100 BR player, which have been a lot of bang for the buck with the netflix subscription. (the tv is 4 years old so right now it breaks down to $150/yr so far.) all of this jacked to the stereo (no home theatre, just stereo) makes it "real" and awesome. i don't miss going to the movies, which was always a pain because of people and terrible concessions, parking, etc etc., plus 3D is shit.
