I am a hopeless cinephile, and spend a good deal of time watching
and reading about movies. My longitude/latitude of film scholarship
are Robin Wood and David Bordwell, the crossroad being where Form
and Meaning intersect. My aesthetic wonderland of choice would be
the 1970s. Some faves: Chantal Akerman, Sidney Lumet, Ingmar
Bergman, Chris Marker, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, David Cronenberg,
Steven Spielberg, Hal Ashby, Robert Altman, Michelangelo Antonioni,
Michael Cimino, Andrew Bujalski, Richard Linklater
Favorite reads: The Melancholy Of Resistance (Krasznahorkai),
Immortality (Kundera), Re-Visioning Psychology (Hillman),
Hollywood: From Vietnam To Reagan (Wood), The Cement Garden
(McEwan), Dreams Of Chaos, Visions Of Order (Peterson), The Inner
World of Trauma (Kalsched), The Last Temptation Of Christ
(Kazantzakis), plus Gatsby and Slaughterhouse-Five
Musically, I seem to have tuned out once Michael McDonald left The
Doobie Brothers so, yes, I'm mostly stuck in the 70s and 80s:
Stevie Wonder, Sir Hall & Sir Oates, Joy Division, Blondie,
Steely Dan, Electric Light Orchestra, Barry Gibb, Paul Simon, Echo
& his Bunnymen, REM, The Smiths, Fleetwood Mac, Public Enemy,
John Denver, ABBA, Tangerine Dream, Paul Williams, Giorgio
Moroder...and Sam Cooke.
And I'm always on the lookout for a sushi buddy!
