i had never heard of thief, the directorial debut from michael mann, but the maker of the movie drive certainly had. ive never been a huge fan of mann but his style is undeniable. to be honest i didnt make it past the midway point of the movie but that had more to do with my discomfort sitting on the couch than a dislike of the content.

just watching this now having never heard of it before seeing it buried in the tcm schedule at 4am last night.

Stuart Cooper’s Overlord doesn’t approach the wartime archive as a homogeneous set of familiar images. In the early 1970s, the director mined the 16mm and 8mm archives of London’s Imperial War Museum and emerged with rare treasures of specific historical occurrences, cinematic pleasures of incredible warplanes at flight, and uncanny records of unfathomable tragedy. What he did with them remains wholly unique in the history of war cinema. Cooper shot his own original 35mm film about a young recruit who suffers loneliness and dread from basic training to his arrival at the shores of Normandy on D-Day. He then combined this footage with the archival materials, creating a hybrid that is never quite a narrative yet never quite a documentary either.

the jewiest christmas story since jesus in the manger. thats my tagline for the movie shooting on my block today. the writer/director, producers and primary actors and none of them know the true meaning of christmas. that they didnt choose borough park as a primary location was their only mistake as nothing screams silent night like the sight of round, furry men in round, furry hats wobbling to and fro.

also, note to producers. christmas takes place in winter.
