    The Black Cat

    a contrapuntal musical of bad vibes, where unwitting americanas find themselves trapped in the wrong movie, horrifyingly "confined to the realm of the possible" in a Europe falling off the road into modernism

  • Lonesome

    Lonesome

    good movie but Pál Fejős clearly did not properly account for the scene-stealing beauty of young Andy Devine

    So theres this Truffaut quote I read or heard once that has really stuck with me, he talks about how in order to make really good movies a director has to be a little bit stupid, otherwise when they put two people in front of a camera and ask them to say "I love you" to each other, it will never work, either for the director or for the audience.

    Say what you will about Charlie Kaufman, he sure isn't stupid

    What a fucking chore of a movie

    "Yeah we'll build a house......because if I'm not grounded pretty soon, I'm gonna go into orbit."

    "I'll tell you one thing, there's nothing like building up an old automobile from scratch and wipin out one of these Detroit machines, that'll give you a set of emotions that'll stay with ya, know what I mean? Those satisfactions are permanent."

    From the last two dialogue scenes with Oates, scenes which wring me out like a wet towel.
