2010 film diary part V
I like to imagine a pulpy editor slapping the selling point "Our Biggest Entry Yet!" onto the cover of this issue (if these were in fact issues). I've finally broken away from five entries to...seven! I fell ill and used that time to marathon some of these ...

2010 film diary part III
I've been dragging my feet on this installment. Blame it on grad school. I've also gotten sidetracked by catching up on Oscar noms. As much as I loathe the Oscars, I still feel the need to see as many as possible. Chalk it up to morbid curiosity (is it just...

2010 film diary part I
The first crop of 2010 films with my brief first impressions. As stated in a previous post , all films saw their debut (anywhere) in 2010. These are roughly in order of preference, although there's a significant gulf between the Kluge and Malice . I'm going...

Favorite First Time Viewings of 2014
These are my favorite first-time views of older films during 2014. The first 10 have some brief notes, the remaining 20 are only images. In many ways I prefer these types of lists to new films of 2014. For me, this is marker of where I came from and where I...

Searching for Der Riese (Michael Klier / 1983)
I was recently introduced to a film through an Harun Farocki interview . In it he mentions a film called Der Riese [The Giant] directed by Michael Klier (1983), a name that has until now escaped my attention.  In the interview he describes the film as the f...

The Grand Budapest Hotel
THE GRANT BUDAPEST HOTEL is Anderson's most emotionally sophisticated feature. It falls somewhere in between the overt formalism of THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS and the looser structures of THE LIFE AQUATIC. In situating himself between these poles of his own techn...

2010 film diary part IV
After taking too long to get the last update posted this one seemed to fall into place in a matter of days. Funny how that works. The speed with which I blasted through these titles coupled with the mixed impressions of each film made for a rather strange i...

2010 film diary part II
Now that the semester has started back up my film viewing has meandered down other paths. So for the sake of frequency I might start posting for every three or four films I watch, rather than waiting to accumulate five. But who knows! Like the last posting,...

Best of the Decade So Far Project: 2010 edition
For 2015 I'll be undertaking a blogging project assessing the films of the decade thus far, as 2015 marks the halfway point of the second decade in the 21st century. I'm primarily doing this for fun and to shore up my critical opinions on the films made in ...

Notes on Boyhood + American Dreams: Lost and Found
I've been sitting on these notes since seeing Boyhood back in August. The comparisons I makes here have some significant gaps, but I didn't want to scrap the idea. I also didn't want spend more time developing it, so here it is. Perhaps it's because I watch...

Caterpillar (Wakamatsu / 2010)
Caterpillar ( Kôji Wakamatsu / 2010) It's as if Kôji Wakamatsu doesn't care that filmmaking techniques have changed in the decades since the 1960s. His approach to staging, camera placement, and visual effect are untouched by the sensibilities that shifted ...

Living + End of Watch
This is a follow up of sorts to my previous post where I traced thematic and stylistic similarities between two dissimilar films. Who knows, maybe it'll become a series. Like the last post, this one is not concerned with articulating any reasons why such fi...
