SOFT RIOT

MOVING IMAGES OF SEPTEMBER

15 September 2010

Sitting in this office chair in a few days of calm after a torrent of activity over the last few weeks, I’m not so much finding the time to spill out some insight or stories but so much to check in my punch card and keep moving along. The downtime has left some time to take in a few films that I’ve enjoyed. Some of them I’ve never seen before but have wanted to and some of them I have seen before but have needed to revisit them again. Until I visit this again:

THIEF / DIRECTED BY MICHAEL MANN / 1981

THE KILLING OF SISTER GEORGE / DIRECTED BY ROBERT ALDRICH / 1968

QUERELLE / DIRECTED BY RAINER WERNER FASSBINDER / 1983

FRENZY / DIRECTED BY ALFRED HITCHCOCK / 1972
From the 2:00 minute mark in this clip onward is an amazing piece of cinematography…

LOLA / DIRECTED BY RAINER WERNER FASSBINDER / 1981
