  • Film Analysis --New content -- Joseph Losey's The Damned, or These are The Damned, or Hallucination. Joseph Losey did some brilliant films, and I understand that if you are familiar with the title(s) you probably love this film, but come on, its threads are so loosely and carelessly woven as to have can-drive-a-truck-through-it problems (P.S. I wrote this header before taking a deep dive in the film and have now a certain affection for it, but the header still stands). 28 April 2023.

2023 February

  • Film Analysis -- New content -- Robert Altman's 3 Women, an Analysis. Though I've no "favorite" films, 3 Women is one of the favored ones. I explore the reality of the time, the fantasy of Dodge City (the double of Edgar Hart), Altman's use of doubles mixed up with personality theft, also an essential permeability and loss of individuation, take a deep look at Persona in comparison, detour into Janice Rule in The Subterraneans in which she plays another artist, explore the murals and possible Minoan influence, Bodhi Wind's initial concept art, and examine the final dream. February 24.
  • Film Analysis -- New content -- 420, Weed, and the 1969 Surrealist Film Paris N'Existe Pas. A film about time. An analysis in two parts. The first part ponders a possible 420 connection with weed culture that seems to be happening before 420's charted beginning with high school youth in California who later hooked up with the Grateful Dead. But "Flight 420" is associated with weed in this film from 1969. I also discuss how the film not only opens with a Chirico painting but ends with the recreation of one. In the second part, I move on to Kubrick's The Shining. I've previously discussed how Kubrick was influenced by the surrealists, referencing surrealist work in The Shining, and we find another example here. February 12.
