The prolific, some call neo-Fassbinder, François Ozon has an admirable commitment to putting a film out every year. The results have been recently delightfully varied, ranging from the buoyant but silly murder mystery comedy musical, 8 Femmes, a celebration of...


Um, I guess I’m back from my unscheduled and rather unproductive sabbatical from this space. This afternoon I suddenly had the strong urge to blog – prompted by an elevating of mood having seen the latest from Francoise Ozon and...

Happy Valentine’s Day! My apologies for the lack of updates … its not that I’m particularly busy these days (although I am back in school now, pursuing a totally new direction, and have absolutely no idea what I am doing!)....
