album list

  1. Simple Requests: New American Music for Computer and Live Performances - Jeffrey Stolet, Evan Chambers, Peter Terry, Rodney Oakes, Richard Lyons, Stella Sung -  [1995 Cambria]. Spotify has the wrong album, compared to the CD. Interrupted Dances (1989) by Keith Kothman is the pick here. He studied at UC San Diego and is now at Western Michigan (in Kalamazoo!).

movie log 2021

  1. Things to Come (2016) - The Criterion Channel.  Isabelle Huppert's life quickly declines but the movie is matter-of-fact rather than overly sentimental. "The future seems compromised." There's a quick scene where she is watching a Juliette Binoche movie. Schubert over the credits? ⭐
  2. Whirlpool (1950) - DVD. Otto Preminger, Gene Tierney, Jose Ferrer, Richard Conte.  If I believed in the power of hypnotism, this would have been a good movie. Are her sleep problems indicative of a deeper problem in her marriage, or not? Maybe just kleptomania. A psychological and handsome noir with Tierney as an innocent, feminine and confused beauty, although the New York Times said she was "haughty." Richard Schickel commentary.
  3. The Underneath (1995). Super-tense, with an unsatisfying ending. Good shooting, film-wise. Re-make of  Criss Cross. Steven Soderbergh, Peter Gallagher, Allison Elliott, Paul Dooley, Joe Don Baker and Andjjenette Comer
  4. Veronika Voss (1982). Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Interesting and unsatisfying movie. Bad deeds go unpunished.
  5. Amazing Adventure (1936). Alfred Zeisler, Cary Grant, Mary "The Sweetest Girl in Pictures" Brian. Stove selling and fighting among other activities on his way back up.
  6. Martha (1974). Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Incongruous, strange and with marital servitude.
