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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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 (eleven years ago) Permalink

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.

i'm not seeing any movies until after the GREs

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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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.

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

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.

I'm suspicious too, but I may have to go out of a social obligation.

if anybody hasn't been to the reopened film forum yet, i give it a tentative thumbs up. those new seats are massively more comfortable, maybe the most comfortable i've ever encountered. but, surely there are fewer seats in the room? which would bode poorly for things selling out. :-/

As there was no soundtrack/score on the print, FSLC ran last night's 7pm Dulac silent feature in total silence. Terrible idea. Put on a record to drown out the patrons' yawns and gurgling stomachs.

yeah wow that was great! thanks for the recommendations, y'all, they helped push us over the top and we had a ball.

the theater (one floor up, in columbia's new, quasi-dystopian manhattanville campus) is a nice room too, more of a wide black box theater than just a dinky little screening room. screen felt big, could really dive into the colors. sound was kind of painfully loud a few times, not sure if that was specific to the film, the settings in the control room, or the acoustics. but i'd def see a movie there again.
