Me&Video: Film Friday – Snowland, NY (2007)

February 21, 2014

20140204-012732.jpg

Here is one of the first short films that I ever made and edited by myself.

“Snowland, NY” (2007)

I posted this on YouTube seven years ago yesterday.

This is arguably my first experimental film/music video, “place portrait.”

The music is “Separate the People,” by The Mates of State.

Movie Review: Body Double (1984)

February 14, 2014

20140206-014835.jpg

This film (dir. Brian De Palma) has peeping tom stuff, claustrophobic stuff, sexy Melanie Griffith, etc.

Not my all-time favorite De Palma, but pretty sweet.

Movie Review: East of Eden (1955)

February 7, 2014

20140206-010732.jpg

I was inspired to watch this film (dir. Elia Kazan) for the first time after watching Scorsese’s “A Letter to Elia.”

It’s good. James Dean, yes.

Movie Review: On the Waterfront (1954)

February 7, 2014

20140206-012716.jpg

I was inspired to watch this film (dir. Elia Kazan) for the first time after watching Scorsese’s “A Letter to Elia.”

It’s really good, simple story, complex emotions, Brando is captivating.

Me&Video: Film Friday – ToddShow Intro (Teaser)

February 7, 2014

20140204-022636.jpg

Here is the long intro to the show I’ve been developing for sometime called ToddShow.

Since this was released online in 2010, it is now considered a teaser and preview, as well as de facto 1st sequence of multiple and forthcoming intros which will be soon updated to include material and footage from stuff that has been created and shot since then.

“Where IS ToddShow?” you ask. It exists in short films and video experiments found on my YouTube page HERE.

I am developing a 45-minute variety show with a narrative arc for cable access. I am also developing a ToddShow web series and a live theatrical experience called ToddShow Live.

All of this is taking time, living a certain amount of life, collecting data from experiences in media marination as well as successes but mostly failures in work, love, friends, family, places, and art.

More soon.

Movie Review: Naked in New York (1993)

December 14, 2013

20131214-064007.jpg

I thoroughly enjoyed this Martin Scorsese-produced film from the EARLY nineties (dir. Daniel Algrant).

We see risk-taking here, innovative story telling, breaking the fourth wall, magical realism, a young Mary-Louise Parker, …

20131214-064952.jpg

It’s a sweet coming of age film, Eric Stoltz in one of the better, almost Stoltzier, roles.

Movie Review: Search and Destroy (1995)

December 14, 2013

20131214-061704.jpg

I watched this (dir. David Salle) while on a kick of seeking out Martin Scorsese-produced films.

It is so early nineties, very psychedelic. Can’t remember what happens in it really, but Christopher Walken is in it.

20131214-062435.jpg

It’s one of those Griffin Dunne vehicles. I liked After Hours so much and he has a mustache in this one.

20131214-062739.jpg

I do recommend it.

Movie Review: Passion (2012)

December 14, 2013

20131214-055827.jpg

A new Brian De Palma film. Good psychological thrills. Rachel McAdams is a good evil creep. Harkens back to classic BDP maybe. Still not as good as his older films but whatever.

Movie Review: A Letter to Elia (2010)

December 14, 2013

20131214-054424.jpg

This PBS American Masters documentary (dir. Kent Jones and Martin Scorsese) is an inspiring look at Elia Kazan’s life and career, and stuff he went through like getting blacklisted as a communist and naming names and all that.

Narrated by Martin Scorsese.

20131214-054928.jpg

After this I was inspired to watch the great Kazan films, East of Eden and On the Waterfront.
