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 Last
Temptation Of Christ (Kazantzakis), plus Gatsby and
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!
