An update on this site is long overdue. Heck, a post in general is long overdue. Since October the struggle for any cinephile has faced has been very present for me: what matters more life or film? Clearly without life there is no film. However, those obsessed with film don’t always grasp that fully. Two new phases of my life are being entered to: fatherhood (in it, in a foster kind of way), and being a licensed driver (working on it – and originally from New York so that explains that).
I had a good deal of the gap in new material filled with re-spliced material but alas they lapsed. But things are in the works both here and elsewhere they’re just a bit slower-going. Here are some examples.
The first in line will be reviews for two short documentaries by Mark Rappaport.
Followed by a Blu-Ray review of a previous Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language film now out on Blu-ray.
Then a Blu-ray review of a horror film starring the late great Christopher Lee, to not narrow it down too much!
Also, I’ve begun ruminating on the latest caped crusader film. Hint: I was enveloped by the sheer vacuity of it, then when I realized why I was really mad.
Aside from writing projects here, I also have outside writings in various stages of development. I definitely need to kick into high gear. And when I do you’ll hear about it here. One recent development you will not can be found here.
I have every intention of writing up the BAM Awards for the 21st time in 2017, I just need to do a lot of year-end catch-up.
If a hiatus is needed in the future for another work it will be announced beforehand.
Speaking of hiatuses, my The Tin Drum posts, are a white whale I’m determined to chase down also.
More is sure to come as balance, much like winter on Game of Thrones, is coming to my life.
