September 21 – post #501!

So, to celebrate 500 posts, I decided to retire my haiku form.

Don’t trust words to say
What images know better.
Sight grows in dim light.

Project X (1968, d. William Castle)

Cop Dog (2008, d. John Murlowski)


September 20 – dumping ground

After almost a two month hiatus, brought on by haiku-exhaustion, I’ve decided to scale back the haiku. I will start again in the new year, for a year of haiku cinema commentary. In the meantime, here are some images I hadn’t gotten around to posting!

Blood Lake (1987, d. Tim Boggs)

The Dictator (2012, d. Larry Charles)

Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull’s History Lesson (1976, d. Robert Altman)

Death Valley (1982, d. Dick Richards)

Fatal Frames: Fotogrammi Mortali (1996, d. Al Festa)

Valentine (2001, d. Jamie Blanks)

Nighthawks (1981, d. Bruce Malmuth and Gary Nelson)


The Secret World of Arrietty (2010, d. Hiromasa Yonebayashi)
