No reason you should, unless you enjoy the cinematic equivalent of watching paint dry.


The write up on the S&S website is interesting:

Quote
It rigorously records her domestic routine in extended time and from a fixed camera position

Why would someone waste the cinematic medium by keeping the camera fixed the whole time? Might I also assume that there is no brilliant editing either?

Never heard of it,  lol.

Nor have I.

The one good thing about this year's lists is that the magazine also publishes the individual lists of its high profile contributors. I don't have a copy of the magazine, but over at criterionforum some posters do, and they're sharing photos of some of the pages. Here's one that might be of interest to readers here:

Michael Man?s list reminds me just how good Pale Flower is.

I wasn?t sold on this one. It took Jackie Brown, good chunks of The Hateful Eight, and everything but the ending of Once Upon. Time in Hollywood, for me to truly appreciate Tarantino. Apart from Jackie Brown, he seems to be getting better with age in my opinion.

The behind-the-scenes shot from The Getaway on the cover is a nice choice. Any choice tidbits he has to share on that one? I might need to put this book on my Santa list.

Finally got my hands on a copy.

I enjoyed your Convoy and Osterman articles on the rediscovered scenes/cuts really informative, Mike!

Of course, now I just want someone?Imprint, are you reading this??to release the Japanese cut of Convoy again.

So what?s all this about an alternative cut of The Killer Elite:

I?m guessing this might be the shorter theatrical version I have on my French disc. The US release only had the longer cut (I never watch the shorter one anyway), but it also came with ?Noon Wine?, which was nice!

Or Imprint have uncovered something else ?

Some of the other reviews are decent. I?d be interested to check it out.

Separately, I will definitely be buying this:

Plus, my copy of Dersu Uzala arrived a couple of days ago. Looking forward to checking it out.

Imprint is rapidly becoming one of my favorite labels

Kill!/ Kiru (1968) - 5/10. Kihachi Okamoto tries his hand at a remake of Sanjuro, but, despite great photography and editing, it doesn't come off. Too many characters, no one to root for. Nakadai plays the lead, but it's impossible to know if he has a plan or if he's just making things up as he goes along. After a while, I just stopped caring.

Is the title a pun? Means ?cut? but sounds like ?kill? when pronounced with a Japanese accent.
