To Sleep With Angerfebriblog3

Mon, 15 Aug 2011 22:12:36 +0000

To Sleep With Anger (1990) Dir. Charles Burnett When Killer of Sheep was ceremoniously re-discovered and released in 2007 with great fanfare, director Charles Burnett had a triumph over obscurity that would be enviable to any living, working filmmaker long relegated to the recesses.  It was a success story that felt truly deserved, a bona-fide […](image)

Outer Space (1999) Dir. Peter Tscherkassky So I’ve got much catching up to do.  Many films were viewed, many books were read in this long absence for Febriblog, but as I feel compelled to write on them, I will.  This time has been taken to attempt, gasp, creative writing once again, in hopes to one […](image)

On capturing war on film: See, there’s no way you can portray war realistically, not in a movie nor in a book.  You can only capture a very, very small aspect of it.  If you really want to make readers understand a battle, a few pages of your book would be booby-trapped.  For moviegoers to […](image)

The Other Side of the Wind (1972) Dir. Orson Welles Well, I am happy to report at least some semblance of progress on the release of Orson Welles’ great lost film, The Other Side of the Wind, which I did a profile on here.

On The Double Life of Veronique (1991): “I don’t film metaphors.  People only read them as metaphors, which is very good.  That’s what I want.  I always want to stir people to something.  It doesn’t matter whether I manage to pull people into the story or inspire them to analyse it.  What is important is […](image)

(This list began as an e-mail to a good friend of mine, but I figured it would be appropriate for discussion here on this site.  There is quite a lot else to say about this topic, and the films mentioned, so I more than encourage furthering discussion.  In the meantime, here’s a basic overview of […](image)

The Thief and the Cobbler (1993); The Thief and the Cobbler: The Recobbled Cut (2006) Dir. Richard Williams The Thief and the Cobbler is in so many ways the very archetype for cult fandom, one of those impossibly true stories of a passion project getting yanked around for over a decade, only to be unceremoniously […](image)

La Jetéefebriblogla-jetee-orly

Mon, 23 Aug 2010 06:08:42 +0000

La Jetée (1962) Dir. Chris Marker The greatest short film ever created. This is where I stand with this film, always and forever, but it arose with confidence once again in my mind after my much-delayed and deflating viewing of Nolan’s Inception. After Nolan quite simply broke his own rule of the logic of the […](image)

Close-Up (1990) Dir. Abbas Kiarostami A moment of sublime poetry in Kiarostami’s brilliant deconstruction of both narrative and documentary cinema, Close-Up.  As a journalist and two policemen enter the home of a family subject to the identity fraud of a devout cinema lover posing as a major Iranian film director, Kiarostami instead remains fixed on […](image)
