    In 1976, Bruce Conner premiered “Crossroads.” A 37-minute exhibition piece which simply depicts that famous 1946 nuclear blast at the Bikini Islands, scored by the twinkling synthetic sounds of Patrick Gleeson and Terry Riley. We can be aware of the government’s intent behind the blast, but for those 37 minutes, you as a viewer are forced to sit in a dark room, completely removed from context, and watch as mushroom clouds dwarf aircraft carriers, plumes of smoke fall into the…

    Robby Müller made some of cinema’s most beautiful images ever but none of them are quite as cuntily breathtaking as Jeanne Moreau standing in the Outback, head-to-toe knitwear billowing in the wind, complete with Dior sunglasses, listening out for any car that approaches. Then she full on makes out with her son. Legendary entrance for a legendary legend. 

    Wim Wenders’ “ultimate road movie” in which he got a $20 million budget to make a 5-hour epic that goes from car…

    “…when we understand one another, love ends.” — Abbas Kiarostami

    We never know what the state of this relationship is. We never know for sure when (or rather, if) they are performing or when they are their authentic selves. Each time it’s a new takeaway and a new revelation all together. I often find myself crying over many scenes and yet I can never tangibly explain why. The quote above is the thesis for Kiarostami’s film and his direction of it, which shrouds the story in enigma, proves to be a perfect complement. It’s an ever-changing chameleon. An unsolved riddle with a million devastating conclusions.

    Vesper Lynd does not enter the frame until a near-solid hour into the movie and it is clear from the moment Eva Green delivers “I’m the money” that, while Bond has spent the whole first act chasing after a plethora of bad guys, he has now finally found his perfect prizefight match. The chemistry between them is so explosive and the script so sharp, you would think these two characters were chemically engineered for one another in whatever lab MI-6…

    “How do you tell a child she was born to be hurt?”

    Had the great pleasure of seeing this on the big screen followed by a Q&A with the great Susan Kohner. Wept through the movie and wept once again seeing the film’s last surviving star in the flesh 🤍

    One thing she talked about was how Sirk “scared a good performance out of her.” He was an austere man, not at all as warm or sentimental as you’d expect…
