The trailer for this 2014 tense horror makes it appear bland and ordinary, but there’s more going on in David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows. Carpenter and Romero influenced (there’s a lot of it about) but also cinematography straight from Gregory Crewdson and Cindy Sherman’s Untitled #92 & #167. After effects similar to those experienced post Exorcist III/Ringu. You’ve been warned. Central Station at 7am was a place of (more than usual) paranoia and tension for this idiot yesterday.
Working for six days on the trot has clearly resulted in a feeding frenzy for my eyeballs. Here’s one for Iain, a turner, though presumably a well behaved one.
Directed in 1960 by Karl Reisz from Alan Sillitoe‘s novel.
In honour of Method’s appreciation of The Soft Machine earlier today, here’s the first of three Chris Marker films…
From his collection Bestiaire aka Petit Bestiaire (1990), consisting of three ‘video haikus’. And now for owls and the zoo…
A more straight forward performance/recording from director, Christine Schäfer and Natascha Osterkorn on piano this Schuman. This is the second part of One Night One Day by Oliver Herrmann.
