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.

7pm Germi tnite? (i won't be online, off today)

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?

Eric H., Monday, 5 November 2007 20:59 (ten years ago) Permalink

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.

I am suspicious of Raiders Adaptation. For one, I haven't watched ROTLA 20x like everyone else has, apparently.

ice cream social justice (Dr Morbius), Thursday, 8 March 2018 18:03 (three months ago) Permalink

Did any of y'all go to the FF screening of Skidoo on Thursday? The Q&A with Austin Pendleton afterwards was one of the more entertaining such things I've ever seen. Dude's first film and he was opposite Jackie Gleason and, for one day's shooting, Groucho Marx. They were up late wining and dining the night before and were finally told they had to head out at 6 am for the shoot because the sea would be calm. Groucho: "Sure, the sea will be calm, but what about Preminger?"

Also a very very cute moment where they brought Jonathan Lynn (who directed Pendleton in My Cousin Vinny) onstage - Pendleton originated the role of Motel in Fiddler on the Roof on Broadway, and Lynn did the same in London, which is how they met. Neat! Some nice anecdotes from Pendleton about directing Elizabeth Taylor in The Little Foxes. Etc., etc.

Doctor Casino, Saturday, 10 March 2018 18:13 (three months ago) Permalink

My comedian friend went. Did AP say anything about OP verbally bullying Groucho?

ice cream social justice (Dr Morbius), Sunday, 11 March 2018 11:45 (three months ago) Permalink

No, but he agreed with the host's suggestion that it didn't seem like Groucho was having a good time in the picture. TBF, almost all of Groucho's scenes are just him in one room, sometimes with Alexandra Hay or Donyale Luna, so who knows how long he was even shooting and what his interactions with Preminger were like.

Roadie is not well regarded, but I'd like to see Songwriter.

We're very sorry for the long delay in re-opening @vfbrooklyn at the Alamo Drafthouse. We intended to be open much sooner, but the initial plan for the store design ran into some serious design and logistical snags. We needed to rethink, redesign and start over.
