Recommended Reading: “Zona” by Geoff Dyer

zona

ZONA by Geoff Dyer Published Feb 2012 (Pantheon) I would read Geoff Dyer on any subject—partly because his writing is unfailingly beautiful, and partly because to read him on any subject is to read him on pretty much every subject. He’s not inclined to take the shortest, most direct route to his ostensible destination; the man likes […]


No Objections

In the unlikely event that Sight and Sound asks me for my top 10 films of all time for its decadel poll, I am going to include Otto Preminger’s Anatomy of a Murder. It is a great American film, one of the best adaptations of a novel to the screen, and is paradoxically epical as it bores into […]

Crazy Horse (Documentary) Director: Frederick Wiseman This is not a film about the Lakota chief, but the Paris cabaret. The lure of the place is, unabashedly, nude dancing.

Critics and publicists are touting The Woman in Black on several fronts: as Daniel Radcliffe’s first post-Harry Potter movie, as the rebirth of Hammer Films, as a fine deal for its distributor CBS Films, which bought the distribution rights for $3 million dollars, and which as so far made around $45 million (advertising costs are unknown). What viewers […]


Head Case

Based on a small sample of films so far, the 35th annual Portland International Film Festival is one of the most violent in memory. It’s not gunplay, but gross, ugly, physical violence of a cruelly imaginative sort. In the British “miserabalist” horror film, Kill List, a man is brutally beaten to death in his kitchen. In Snowtown, serial killers […]
