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)

Dr Morbius, Monday, 5 November 2007 17:43 (ten years ago) Permalink

Like to, but no can do.

James Redd and the Blecchs, Monday, 5 November 2007 18:00 (ten years ago) Permalink

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.

Dr Morbius, Tuesday, 6 November 2007 14:16 (ten years ago) Permalink

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:
TS Carl Dreyer vs. Victor Erice

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.

James Redd and the Blecchs, Wednesday, 14 November 2007 12:21 (ten years ago) Permalink

UGH @ ophuls competing w/ sembene!!

the brief clip i watched of the adaptation looked awesome. i suggest you get on line REEEEEAL early if you end up seeing it, tho

impudent harlot, Wednesday, 14 November 2007 13:49 (ten years ago) Permalink

in my GRE-prompted cinema ban i didn't realize i missed ALL of the germis (except for divorce, italian style which i've already seen)

impudent harlot, Wednesday, 14 November 2007 13:50 (ten years ago) Permalink

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

Also, Sembene v Ophuls v Pasolini.

I would focus on the otherwise unavailable OS & MO.

Jiri Menzel is at BAM tonight w/ his latest, but I know nothing about it.

Ah cool, thx

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. Plus I love RWF, and I've seen a few tv things at the cinema recently - not the new twin peaks sadly - and usually enjoy it

also you'll get to experience the banter of MoMA film audiences, which during my 1997 Berlin Alexanderplatz weekend included "Shut up!" "No, YOU shut up!"

saw WoF at MG last week, was a great experience and i think the supense played really well with being in an audience. i've been hitting that place up a lot since moviepass... super convenient location for me, interesting programming, comfy seats, good picture and sound... even the smaller room is a genuinely Big Screen. no interest at all in the bougie restaurant and treats but they don't affect me.

Hmmm I may check it out - hoping to finally get to the new museum today so will be in the neighbourhood. Might be all cinema'd out for one week tho.

I stuck it out till the end of the fassbinder - surprisingly enough given that I felt my eyelids beginning to droop during the introduction. I liked it (and was surprised by how good-natured it all was) but it's so not meant to be watched in this way - whoever it is that's showing it over a few weekends has the right idea I think.
