there's also that manoel de oliveira belle de jour psuedo-sequel, belle toujours, which came about around 2009, 32 year after buñuel's film.

You guys all remember this series right?

I think Jeter wrote two more after that one.

Vini Reilly Invasion (Elvis Telecom), Monday, 21 May 2012 16:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

he was authorized by he dick estate to write those as well. I assume they are awful. I know he has a cult following but the one book of his I read (wolf flow) sucked balls.

Jeter's Dr. Adder was pretty good, I seem to remember.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 21 May 2012 16:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

Jeter alternates between hackery and genius. I don't know anybody that's read Dr. Adder or Glass Hammer and not been impressed.

He Said You Blade Runner, She Said You Blade Runner, a mixed-up romantic comedy from Ridley Scott.

i like that those lines are evocative of stuff we haven't actually seen, that's kind of the point.

We watched this last night -- I'd never seen the Final Version, and my girlfriend had never seen it at all. Enjoyed it as always, and the Final Version probably actually is the best cut -- though tbh pretty much everything I love about Blade Runner was right there in the original theatrical version. All the tweaks have made it a better movie, but even in its compromised form it was a classic. The thing I tend to forget between viewings is how slow and quiet so much of it is. And also how far it goes into bonkers dream logic during the final chase.

Something about PKD in general, probably having to do with the way he writes (not that i've ever though about it in depth) is that at a certain point you're willing to follow the story where it goes without a thought to rationality. the surreal/fantastic in his work often has a very cumulative effect -- you start off with something that seems to follow the natural laws of physics/space/time and end up somewhere very distant through that. it's a good technique, i think. little things that seem weird at first make it easier to handle the REAL WEIRD stuff that comes later on.

probably how utterly normal his characters react to utterly abnormal events?

乒乓, Monday, 11 March 2013 11:44 (1 year ago) Permalink

^^^ his characters are always archetypes that are working through really relatable emotional states - the alpha male is a blinkered asshole, the protagonist is a neurotic mass of resentments/self loathing, the femme fatale with the heart of ice, the naif innocent that's wise beyond his/her years etc. these figures are constants throughout his books, it's the bizarre scenery surrounding them that changes.

"The synagogue music is awful on the street. We must use Vangelis."

Is he referring to this piece of music, which is by Demis Roussos and Vangelis?

What I like in particular are the little pockets of the familiar that persist in the monolithic city, like: a 30s/40s detective character, a china-town, a toymaker.
