A regular viewer asked whether I had any intention of re-publishing, Opportunities, one of my more cynical efforts. So I figured "why not?" 

This was made in 2003, in standard def. If you go to vimeo, you can view it in 720p.

The Draughtsman's Contract http://wp.me/p1pzRo-2iX
It came as something of a shock when, after watching Peter Greenaway’s The Draughtsman’s Contract recently, I realized it was over 30 years old. I've seen it too many times to claim the shock resul...

Sexy, silly, sensational: Morocco http://wp.me/p1pzRo-2in
One of the most remarkable qualities of most of the films made by Josef von Sternberg with Marlene Dietrich is their basic silliness. They are not camp, because they neither take themselves too ser...

Collective suicide, epic insanity: Kolberg http://wp.me/p1pzRo-2hs
Kolberg is impossible to discuss apart from its intentions, less for artistic than political reasons. Dramatizing the resistance of the city of Kolberg to the advancing armies of Napoleon, and made...

The rebuilt Naked Bastard is now available for anyone interested.
If for some reason you want to compare it with the old copy, that is still available at YouTube.

Nothing like restoring an old movie to make me think about larger cinematic issues.

But what about the poor manufacturers? They have to pick our pockets somehow. But you are right, the technology doesn't train a filmmaker to think and see.

Which psychopath has the most style?: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly http://wp.me/p1pzRo-2it
I like to provoke people by claiming The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is the best film about the American Civil War that I’ve seen. The provocation isn’t just a perverse tease. The film does offer a ...

Too much, too little, or anything at all? Eureka http://wp.me/p1pzRo-2hK
I watched Eureka hoping to reconcile my feelings about Nicholas Roeg, whose work never fails equally to fascinate and frustrate me. I should have known better. Whatever else you might say about Roe...

Here is my latest video. Comments here or at vimeo greatly appreciated. (Probably best to view it at vimeo rather than here, but whatever works.)

Story
Tagline
I make films.
Introduction
I recently came to the startling realization that I have been making movies for forty years. It's therefore no exaggeration to say that anything about me that is worth noting has something to do with film--either my own, or what I have written about other people's work.

Call it an obsession, a passion, or a way of avoiding reality, but don't call it a hobby. It's more than what I do. It's who I am.

Many of my videos are at vimeo.
Bragging rights
I have done nothing to brag about.
