Adventures in Self-Releasing - Part 1 of 37

At the beginning of 2009 I began a partnership with MovieMaker magazine to publish a 37 part series of my journey with my first feature The Last Lullaby.

I have never shared the entire blog here so thought I would finally do that, sharing a new part daily.  Also now that I'm doing the quarterly film club collaboration with RW Norton Art Gallery the timing felt appropriate.



In the White City

Jour de Fete

An ideal entry point into the one of a kind world of Tati

King of New York

I watched something recently about the jazz pianist Bill Evans and someone described the only two things he sought were beauty and truth.

Ferrara's cinema often discards the first but if you hang in there with him, you can trust that a certain truth will come through in his expression.

An incredibly patient filmmaker, a humanist in the vein of the Dardennes and Rossellini

4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days

I have long been interested in the idea of an aesthetic that captures the real with methods that are precise and formal.  It's a difficult balance to strike as many films aiming for something more formal usually end up distancing themselves from reality.  Meanwhile, films that want to feel real will often end up sacrificing a formal system for something more intimate and immediate.

Splendor in the Grass

Along with Cukor's Holiday, it's my favorite film about the pressures of conformity

Cure

I would start here with the work of Kiyoshi Kurosawa.  One of the great directors to emerge from Japan in the last 30 or so years.

Etre et avoir

At times feels like something the cinema has never quite captured before, the awakening of a young mind
