I see there is a week left on the MOMA Spain (Un)Censored series and Film Forum is stepping up to the plate with a Pietro Germi festival starting this weekend. Still some good things in the Spanish series, like The Executioner tomorrow, but don't know if I'll make any of it. Definitely will try to see at least In nome della legge at the FF.

Sometimes I regret living here; too much, too much...

Youngest MoMA audience I've ever seen last night for Night of the Living Dead, maybe 35-40. And the 8pm screening looked younger still.

I'm pretty sure I've never seen Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors (BAM for the next week).

Dr Morbius, Thursday, 1 November 2007 13:16 (ten years ago) Permalink

But you probably DID see the Madonna video that ripped it off.

James Redd and the Blecchs, Thursday, 1 November 2007 13:46 (ten years ago) Permalink

If it was after '86, don't bet on it.

Like to, but no can do.

I have tickets for the MOMI Todd Haynes thing that night, but David Gatten is programming an evening of films about water (including JJ Murphy's Sky Blue Water Light Sign) at the WORK Gallery in Red Hook on November 10th.

Paradjanov! I've seen that, it was about 10 years ago though.. gorgeous. The Madonna video that ripped off scenes was Bedtime Story.. I remember talking to some Armenian girls when on study abroad & mentioning this.. they were absolutely mortified..

So you gave up on ILF too, huh?

who, me? (I'm thinking this is gonna be mostly for local screenings) I didn't promise to start posting on ILF more, like SOME PEOPLE.

Tonight Paradjanov (esp if I decide not to vote), maybe tom'w Terror's Advocate, Thurs another Germi? all tentative.

I think he was talking about me. Actually I officially gave up around here. but I've started some threads over there since then, like my Germi thread, and these two:

A friend of mine is trying to get me to go see Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation at The Anthology tomorrow or over the weekend. Looks like an interesting curiosity, but I dunno.

UGH @ ophuls competing w/ sembene!!

good to know, thanks y'all. i don't mind a little-room theater... spectacle rules, i've really enjoyed some videology screenings for example, n i keep meaning to check out film noir in greenpoint... but one has to be in the right mood.

next question: is there an exact closing date for the landmark sunshine? news reports say its lease is up "in january" which i thought meant december 31st would be it, but it looks like they're promoting screenings through at least 1/27 so maybe it's a 1/31 deal?

lol i've apparently never ended up in the one really really bad IFC screen but a friend told me about it recently. be nice if they'd let you know in advance. "the movie you've selected will be roughly the size of a generously-proportioned TV set."

weirdly, Blade Runner Final Cut is described as "released 10 years after the theatrical cut" - which would be true of the director's cut. i admit it's kinda neat that places will continue to screen things like that and the 1980 Close Encounters "special edition" even though they've been superseded by later variations. not sure anybody actually wants to see the "inside the mothership" cut though....

Hmm, do I really want to spend a big chunk of my short stay in New York watching 10 hours of fassbinder? Yes, yes I do. It'll be even more ideal if I can arrange to be hungover for it following some kind of FAP.

xp to ward that's handy to know but I really am into the idea of spending one of the days of my holiday on this (and I meant 8 hours above obviously, duh): it's the kind of cheap solitary activity I'm looking for honestly.
